Monday Evening a Week Ago

A week ago tonight, I had just arrived in ICU from the OR, after having a quadruple bypass. I was not aware of anything or anyone at this time. Apparently hubby stopped in to say hi after talking to the surgeon, but I don't remember any of it. I do remember the surgeon stopping by at some time, still in his scrubs with his face mask on. I'm not sure if he had just finished with me or if he had stopped by after another surgery. All I know is that he is one busy man and for a busy surgeon has a fantastic bedside manner.

I didn't stay in ICU long. Tuesday morning I was moved to the floor and that's where the real journey of healing began.

Update:

I'm doing better. I can get up by myself from a lying position but still have a little trouble getting down. It's kind of like a graceful cow. LOL I'm getting better though and am hoping that by the weekend I can be more independent.

Working on cotton hand crocheted dish cloths that were ordered before my surgery. I thought that I'd be bored in the hospital, but that certainly wasn't the case. So if you ordered dish cloths be assured I'm working my way through the list.

  10. Mary, you are making great progress! I hope you aren't pushing yourself too much. Please don't hurry on the crocheting. Whenever you are feeling like it, will be fine with me.

    I did want to say how much I appreciated Dwight's updates. I can well imagine how exhausted and worried he must have been since I well remember when Dave had his bypass surgery - even though it was many, many years ago. I really appreciated Dwight's thoughtfulness to keep us updated at a time when he was under a lot of stress and want to thank him. Thank you, Dwight!

    Take care my friend! It is wonderful to read your posts!! :-)

  13. Hard to believe you had the surgery a week ago already! So good to hear that you're doing a bit better as each day goes by:-) Maybe it's a good thing that you don't remember much before or right after your surgery! lol My thoughts and prayers are with you, dear friend. xoxo
