Thanks to all of you, I appreciated your thoughts and advice, many thanks.

Sunday, November 18, 2012

DH got up at 9-30pm, his face is not so red but still very swollen. I had made onion soup and he ate that with no problem. I pureed the apples I made so he had some silken apple juice with yogurt and a cup of tea.

I have sat at the computer too long but typing to friends has kept my mind from wandering. He still has a fever but he says he is feeling better.

I will be sleeping in the recliner in the living room two reasons, DH wears a Bi Pap mask for his sleep apnea machine. It goes over his head and jaw and it is a full face mask. Now that his cheek and jaw is so swollen and inflamed he cannot use his machine. He stops breathing in the night and I just cannot sleep well because of the silence I guess.
The other reason, there seems to be so much infection in his gums and mouth and when he moves on to the swollen area he is really in pain. He can have the big bed to himself and he can toss and turn and hopefully I can sleep well in the recliner. I slept there when my back surgery was done and after my shoulder surgery so I and DH know I am comfortable in that nice comfy recliner. I do suspect he will not be ready for sleep but I know I am.

Thanks to all of you HUGS Pat in Maine.

    Bless his heart. Antibiotics some times take up to 48 hours to kick in so I am counting on his being better soon.

My DH is also sick. I went to the drug store and picked up some medication which he took and promptly went back to bed.

I also have a sore throat but not feeling as bad as DH. Needless to say, our trip to Kansas has been cancelled.

Take care. Keep us posted!

    We do it the other way around: the recovering patient sleeps upright and the healthy one gets the bed.

    I hope that your DH recovers fast and with as little pain as possible. Infections are not good no matter where they are in the body. Rest well, I hope you can be comfy in your recliner for now.
