Hello lovely friends! ♥
I've missed this space! I am finally able to get my feet on the ground again and update you on the crazy week I've had. I had a plan for the week, and this certainly wasn't it.
I got a phone call from Rob on Monday afternoon telling me to meet him at the ER because he was having sever abdominal pain. We didn't know if it was his appendix, a heart attack, or what. Well, after six and half hours in the emergency room it was confirmed he had an infected gallbladder that had to be removed asap. The next morning he had emergency surgery and had it taken out. Thankfully, he came through surgery just fine, however recovery from major surgery is no cake walk. Three days later he's out of the hospital and finally home but he's in a lot of pain. It's going to take some time for his body to heal from this. No heavy lifting for awhile and he'll be out of work for at least a few weeks.
I am aware of how lucky he is as it could have been much worse. Being in and out of the hospital makes a person truly appreciate health and a comfortable place to go home to. Unfortunately, I've been through this type of hospital situation before over the past few years and it's never easy. I keep thinking about the nice couple we met waiting in the ER with us. And the dear man Rob had as a roommate, who was a priest of all things! (how lucky was he?!). I pray they are all doing well and back home with their families soon.
I am very thankful to have my little family of three home, together again ♥
He's sleeping now and the house is quiet. My mother in law just dropped off some soup and I have a vanilla candle flickering on the coffee table. Finally it's peaceful. As you know I LOVE my life when it's boring and this certainly wasn't that. I'm hoping now to jump back into some sense of normalcy and get back to being boring. I miss it.
In other news, John has 2 days of school left and then final exams. We can see summer vacation on the horizon. It's almost here!
I hope you are all doing great! I'm looking forward to catching up with your blogs and getting back into the loop! : )
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends! I'm looking forward to some much needed rest and mindless TV watching! Oh, and maybe an ice cream for the patient (and me too!!) so a Dairy Queen run might be needed.
Stay Cozy and we'll talk soon!
