Sometimes, Life Gets in The Way

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

I planned to swim at the gym after work today. The Hubs called, asking me to come straight home because he wanted to go to an urgent care clinic. He's had a sore belly since Saturday.

I'm now sitting in the surgical waiting room as he is having an emergency appendectomy. I figure I'll be here until at least midnight. The Hubs may go home tomorrow, or he may need to spend another day.

Well, the surgeon just came out. The appendix was ruptured, but it was localized. The Hubs is all patched up, but it may take more than a day for him to heal. It's a good thing he came in when he did.

    Thanks everyone! The Hubs is off the morphine drip and the oxygen monitor and the surgeon expects he'll be able to go home tomorrow (the Hubs, not the surgeon - I'm pretty sure the surgeon already went home).

Once the Hubs is asleep, I'm going home to get some sleep myself. I got 3-4 hours of sleep last night.

    This is the kind of thing that should interrupt your workout schedule! You will get back on track when your husband is well, and meet your goals. emoticon
