So This is What Happened

Frigid icy air this morning, 15 degrees F with a steady wind and snow falling. Son Nicarus drove my brother and me to the hospital for brother's procedure. The doctor was unable to place the stents into the kidneys, so now Jimmy (brother) has catheters coming out of his back, from each kidney. It is not pleasant, and these things will be in for a while. I shall spare you all the details. But home nurses will be coming to visit for the interim to make sure all is well.

Meanwhile, my husband has been having terrible stomach pains and goes to his doctor today. After a CT scan he is promptly sent to the Emergency Room. So he drives his car to the hospital where Jimmy and I are; he goes to the Emergency Room and I need to get Jimmy home. (Nicarus had my car, as this was his first day of training on the job he just started Friday.)

By 8:00 pm this evening, my husband was admitted to the hospital and will have surgery in the morning for an abscess on his colon.

Certainly this is a new wrench in the ever-hobbling wheel of my life. Uh, Waiter?  Check, please!

Robin!!! I am so sorry! I am lighting a candle for your family and sending lots of healing thoughts your way! You poor girl!! I have to tell you, later on this month, or in April, I was going to write about what happened to me when I was sick, just to let you know, I had an abscess too, but in my pelvic area. Your hubby will be ok ;o)

Oh Robin, I'm hoping by now your husband is on the mend and your brother is safely at home with the care of visiting nurses. Time to rest up my dear and take care of yourself too! ~Lili
