My rainy day is looking up. Thanks so much for the support and encouragement yesterday. Hannah is home from the hospital, and recovering. It’s sort of a gruesome surgery with some less than glamorous details, so I won’t gross you out with the specifics, but just look at this face. She’s so pleased to be home (but sad she can’t get at her itchy stitches).
She hasn’t worn a “cone of shame” in several years, so she’s a crack up bumping into everything. And of course she’s made both cats really upset because she smells like the hospital and is really scary with her cone on. I’m hoping the next three to five days won’t be too difficult, but so far she’s needed non-stop monitoring so she won’t scoot.
Greg, my father in law, is also doing much better. He had a tear in the arterial portion of his stomach, so the ulcer was literally pumping blood into his stomach, which of course explains the extremely low blood pressure. They were able to cauterize the bleed, and are monitoring him to make sure his blood pressure returns to normal and the repair sticks. They think it was caused by too much aspirin, which he was taking for back pain.
All in all, today is looking up. Thanks for letting me vent my sadness yesterday. I know it’s not the funnest stuff to read, but sometimes it’s really therapeutic. Have a wonderful week, my friends.
