Faster Than A Speeding Bullet







Sharing with you and those at





Haven't been around much...blood work twice a week, nurses visits a few times a week, and just keeping the Pres company.  What I will say is thank goodness for pain meds!!  While he is doing remarkably well, it seems to be the hardest on him at night.  The Pres has always slept on his side which is what he tries to do and those pain meds are what is letting him do it.  

But what a riot he is.  When someone comes to visit, or calls, he perks right up and tells them how good he is feeling.  In fact, the other afternoon while on the phone with the surgeon's office, I heard him ask if he could get some restrictions lifted.  I really wanted to stick around for this conversation and listening intently, I heard the nurse laugh and say, "What kind of restrictions?  He replied, "Driving."  Her answer was short and sweet..."No, not for four weeks."
Now why can't he listen to me when I tell him that?


Again, I thank you all for being so thoughtful and patient.

Love the hummers! They are quick lil birds! Stick to you guns with the Pres, it sounds like he does not like following the rules. Enjoy your day!

Hmmmm. Patience, mega patience!! I hope the four weeks pass quickly for you. ;))

Speeding bullets are a very apt description!

I'm sure it's especially hard on a man (and woman!).. who is a doer.

Glad things are going well, and patience!!.. has just about no one, ever. :-)

I'm just catching up on your news and am happy to hear that your husband is home and doing so well! Awesome! And yes, they don't listen to their wives most of the time. lol It's hard to keep them quiet after such a major surgery (not that I know but my best friend does). I hope the milk weed grows back so the Pres can enjoy watching the butterflies. :) Take care!

Sweet hummers! And my feeders don't look anything like yours! The heat and sun cook the plastic and the sweet drink. Neither seems to bother our hummingbirds (when they are around). We see the odd hummer feeding from the blossoms on our hummingbird bushes by the front porch. Patience for your patient! Linda@Wetcreek Blog

hang in there, glad he is improving slowly.

Those hummers are a challenge! Prayers for continued healing.

TexWisGirl said...

um, good luck with him. :)

Ann Thompson said...

It sounds like you are going to have your hands full with the Pres for the next 4 weeks....lol

Gail said...

May he heal quickly and may you be able to rest some.

Oh, that glossing over of the situation is very common. DH does it all the time. To everybody else he's "doing fine" but I get to hear every little complaint, ache and pain. Guess that's part of the contract, though, huh? Glad the Pres is coming along.

Awwwww.... Hope he heals fast for both of you!! ... Michelle

Your husband is hanging in and being strong! I know he'll be so happy when he's back to normal. Lovely hummingbird shots!

ladyfi said...

Glad he's feeling a bit better! And what lovely shots of that hummingibrd.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

A good sign that he is so spunky!

It's understandable why you haven't been around for awhile, JP, and better that you spend time with family and you know fellow bloggers will stick around.
