Family Illness Day
Friday, October 18, 2013
My husband and I took off work today but we still had to get up early to get down to the hospital. His daughter's surgery was set for 7:30 but we had to be there by 6:15 to see her before she went into surgery. We were there by 6 am but they had already taken her to the pre-surgery area. They let us go in to see her and as soon as she saw her dad she started crying. Typical! We only stayed for about 20 minutes then we went to breakfast and came back home. My husband was tired so while he went to lay down, I did a 3o minute power walk video I found on Sparks. He was ready to go back to the hospital while I was still exercising but he let me finish the video. When we got back to the hospital his daughter was still in the recovery room. We had to wait another hour before they took her back to her room. She had Laparoscopic surgery so her recovery should be quick. My husband wants to bring her here for a few days. I'm not happy with it, but I'll live. We went back to the hospital at about 1:30 this afternoon and didn't get back home until 8:30. We will be picking her up from the hospital tomorrow.
