The Weekend Is So Close

Friday, April 05, 2013

That I can almost see Sat lurking around the corner! And I need this weekend to catch up on somethings...like sleeping. Being hubby's nurse is not that hard..it's just the lack of sleep that's tough. But I think I figured out why he's so much pain when he wakes up in the morning (since his surgery). He took the sling off on Wed because it was making his fingers tingle and then get numb. But I noticed last night, after I gave him his midnight pain meds, that he was throwing his left arm up over his head when he was asleep. That was the one that they cut open and he's NOT suppose to lift it that high. So yeah...he's waking up in pain from having that arm over his head. We're going back to the sling when he sleeps. emoticon

I've been helping helping do things..like get up from chairs, get into and out of bed, sponge baths, etc. Last night I pulled something in my back and boy...did it HURT! I took a Motrin IB for it and it helped. It's much better today but still has moments when I know I did something. I guess I'm just getting to be an old lady! emoticon

Dinner was OK last night but the late night snacking needs to stop ASAP! I get so upset with myself when I do that stuff. You'd think I'd stop doing it! emoticon

I was going to work out with my XBox last night but didn't after the back thing (and it's just the right side of my back). So I'm going to hold off until Monday to jump back into working out at work and then try to do 3 a week at home. emoticon

Not a huge amount going on for me right now. So I guess that this will be it for today..Happy TGIF everyone!
