FIL got to sit up for a bit
Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Well after all the build up, we met the surgeon at my FIL thinking today was the day he got to stand up. They helped him sit up on the edge of the bed but only for a little bit and then he had to lay back down. So no standing up yet. It was a little disappointing as we thought today was the day he would stand. I know he was a little disappointed as I know he wants to start using the bathroom again. But I could see that he just deal with the news and said ..."so be it" and went with the new program which will be to have him sit up a few times per day. But no standing...maybe for at least another week. I am happy that he continues to be positive and not let it upset him too much. The surgeon will visit him again on Thursday and take the stitches out. They say that the incision is healing well.
I am feeling fine. The alarm down the hill continues to go on and off but again I am lucky and can sleep with ear plugs. My DH and I found the house where the alarm continues to go off and told our neighbor which house number it was as they own a rental in that neighborhood and she wanted to go to the office to report it. When she went many people have reported it but the only thing that can be done is to give out the owner's name and phone number. It's a Mexican family that lives an hour away in GDL who only use the house occasionally. So my neighbor has the number and gave it to me...only problem is not speaking fluent enough to talk to them. I might get my Mexican friend to call. We will see.
Will walk the dogs and go check in on FIL.
I hope all of you have a wonderful day.
