Next, our granddaughter Zoe was mauled by a dog! there were some injuries. on her face and on her back. She is a very lucky girl. it could have been so much worse. She is fine.
Next, Hubby thought he was having a heart attack! We rushed to the ER, all tests concerning his heart were negative. thank goodness! However, in running a gazillion tests, they found his gall bladder needed to come out. That was a Sunday, and they didn't operate till Tuesday. They were pumping full of antibiotics. He came home on Wednesday. On Friday we went back because he was is so much pain again. somehow his liver was leaking bile into his abdomen. They had to insert a drain to get rid of all the bad stuff. More antibiotics, because of infection. They wouldn't let him go home till the following Tuesday. With prescriptions for more antibiotics and the drain still in place.
Next, while Hubby was in the hospital, our grandson Hudson, who is 1 1/2 yrs, was toddling, running and ran into the table where the TV is kept. He had the biggest egg on his forehead! He didn't have to stay in the hospital, but he was watched closely to make sure no concussion. He is fine.
This is about an hour or so after he hit his head. it is about half the size it was!
Bruce had the drain in for 11 days. He was on so many medications, which restrictions to eat with food, not eat with food, take by itself, can take it with others, etc. He felt like he was taking medicines 24 hours a day! the longest he could go was 4 hours without taking anything. we set the alarm on his phone, made a list, and he was in business!
Ok, we are done with the roller coaster ride. we want peace, quiet and some normalcy! Bruce is doing great! He feels really, really good. He has started going back to work, a little at a time. he has to work up his strength again. I know it is all very frustrating for him. There have been lots of prayers coming our way. and we have felt them. I know our Heavenly Father has been watching over us.
This is Bruce 11 or 12 days after his adventure. His beard is almost white!! How did that happen? it use to be red. Maybe next year he could be Santa!
Well, there you are! our crazy, messed up adventures. In the last couple of days, I have started to sew again. Oh my goodness, I have missed it. more on that in the next post. I plan on posting some things that happened in December too. gotta get caught up here. Thanks for being patient. I'm back!
