Richard had his surgery, and everything went well. So glad that this day is over, and that he has stomached everything so well. He is currently resting and healing, hoping for a quiet night ahead.
I am wiped out myself. Still dealing with the bronchitis, not having had the chance to take a nap (like I was able to do during the last couple of weeks).
We took the kids to kindergarten together in the morning. Afterward, we did some cleaning until I had to take Richard in to the surgery center. I went back and picked up the girls from kindergarten. We had a picnic lunch until I had to take Lily to her early intervention class; afterward, Violet and I ran some errands, until it was time to pick up Lily. I dropped them off with our neighbor and headed to the surgery center to be with Richard.
There, I found that the surgery schedule had been postponed and hubby was still in surgery. By the time he got out and I was led down to the recovery area, they again did not let me see him because another person was still in the transition area. After I re-fed the parking meter, I was finally able to see my love - or better I heard him before I saw him. There he was, sitting upright, joking with the medical stuff, his face slightly swollen (no, there won't be any pictures). Obviouly, he was doing so well that they would let him go home with me immediately, after a quick check-up with the doctor.
After coming home, I picked up the girls and made dinner after getting Richard comfortable. I showered the kids and got them to bed. Right now, I'm resting as well. Richard is having some after bleeding from the surgery and the anaestesia is wearing off.
Keep your fingers crossed for a good first night!
