BLESSED


The day after the surgery, The Husband was sitting in a chair and walking the halls.  He is adamant about getting strong and being sprung!  He never complains, and I mean NEVER!  He is amazing.  Tomorrow he gets to start eating soft foods.  He has had nothing to eat or drink since Monday night.  He may get out on Sunday, but most likely Monday.

Well, I just wanted to bring all of you up to date.  And I'll close by saying that I prayed and prayed for a few miracles and my prayers were answered.  Today is out 26th wedding anniversary.  I have never felt so blessed that I met this incredible man to spend my life with!

Thank you again for being such a great group of friends.  By the way...is there a holiday coming up? :)

Oh Jane, That is wonderful news. I am so glad everything is going well for you. Isn't it amazing what we can do when we have to? Hubby hip has become dislocated. We don't know when, but we are to meet the surgeon at ER tomorrow. Prayers go out for you and yours for a speedy recovery. Hugs your Missouri Friend.

Oh, Jane.. such good news. So delighted for you.
I have been there, my husband had major surgeries twice in the last few yrs., for cancer...those are long days of worry & then recovery. But that's why we pay Dr's the big bucks... they take out the bad stuff.. : ) & then we get better....
Hugs & Prayers for you & husband..

So glad it all turned out well!! It's hard when things aren't in our control and you have to let others take the driver's seat. Happy Anniversary. I know the feeling of appreciating every minute of all those years.

I give you HUGE credit for driving around Chicago!! I find any alternative to driving downtown Chicago when I go. It makes all my underwear suffer too much...ha!

So glad that everything went well. It sounds like he's going to work hard to recovery very quickly.

Sweet Posy Dreams said...

So glad things are going well. My husband would relate to your son. He is a fainter. They almost wouldn't let him in the OR when I had our first child by c-section. They brought him in at the last minute and put him right at my head where he couldn't see. He had almost passed out in my room when they described the epidural procedure!

Mary said...

LIke everyone, I needed some good news after the terribly sad day in CT yesterday. Knowing Al came through fine, and is already making a fast recovery, is music to my ears.............I know he will soon be home.

Congratulations on your anniversary dear Jane and Al - I loved your words about meeting and making a life with such a delightful man............and I feel blessed to have met you both and look forward to us getting together again someday.

Hang in there..............we all need to at times such as this.
Love from us both Mary & Bob XX

Dear Jane, I am so happy to hear your husband's surgery is over and that he is recovering... my prayers will continue of course that he heals quickly and that you do too... sometimes people don't realize how very hard it is on those who are sitting in the waiting room waiting... wish I was there to sit and talk with you... xoxo Julie Marie Happy 26th Anniversary!...

Sharing Shadymont said...

So glad to hear your sweet hubby is doing great! I spent many hours bedside with my first husband. He was a heart patient with the 7th heart attack being the fatal one. He's been gone for 11 years now. Still miss him. I've been married to my sweetie now for almost 8 years. He's a wonderful man and I am blessed beyond belief to have found love twice in my lifetime. My late husband and I were married for 32 years.

Hospitals are no fun, and I know what you mean about sleeping sitting straight up!

Take care of yourself! Sweets do help. :)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That's great news, Jane! Good that he is moving around, too. I know they like to see that at hospitals. Your poor son ~ although, sometimes I feel lightheaded when I'm visiting people in the hospital. I have no idea why because when I've been a patient, I don't.

Melanie said...

I am SO happy that your hubby is doing so well. I have been praying for you guys and will continue doing so while hubby recovers. Happy anniversary...I'm sure your husband's health is the best gift you could receive! xoxo

Sue said...

Hi Janie, Sorry for taking so long to get over for a visit. I've been under the weather with that ol' vertigo again, plus a sinus infection that has me feeling as if I have a sick migraine. I'm sure this pales in comparison to your husband being in the hospital, however. Glad to hear everything worked out and he is on the mend. Take care of yourself and enjoy a happy Christmas celebration with your loved ones. hugs, Sue

So glad things went well. Hope you have a Merry Christmas. My friend and her husband were over tonight and he has scheduled hernia surgery on Fri. She is not too happy with him as he will be out of commission for all of Christmas.
