The morning after

Pediatrics was good to us last night, the nursing staff up here is absolutely amazing. I slept like a rock on my little couch, for everyone who was wondering…

Angie was awake and able to communicate by 8:30 or so last night. She’s been feeling pretty good, they have had her on Percocet for the pain, and I believe they are still keeping her on some anti-nausea drugs as well. It sounds like she didn’t sleep all that well, she was still kinda jittery from the anesthesia. Tim brought over a pizza for dinner last night (for he and I of course, we couldn’t convince her to have a piece!) and we sat and hung out for a while. It was nice, a good distraction for her. I woke up this morning when I heard our surgeon come in to check on us. She’s awake and doing pretty well, she’s had some Cheerios and apple juice… All the good stuff. We hope by tomorrow afternoon the pathology report will be in and we’ll hear more. Friday will be her next follow-up appointment.

She’s getting her discharge instructions right now, no strenuous activity for the next 24 hours… Guess I won’t start her morning calisthenics up right away. Bummer.

We expect to go home later this morning, but she’ll need some time to get settled. I’ve been asked about visitors; by this evening she may be rested enough- just be sure to call me before you stop by.

One response to “The morning after”

  1. Brian & Angie: Just want you both to know you are being lifted up in prayer in Augusta County. I keep thinking about when I first met you both right after you had gotten engaged and Angie was sharing an apartment with Kristin. All of us have lives that have certainly changed quite a bit since those days! May God bless your family as you go through this together. Love to you both.
    PS-Thanks for keeping your web site up-to-date.
