End Of A Long Week

Rich came home on Thursday. He's doing really, really good. He only takes Advil when he needs it, which has usually been only at night before bed. He can't lift anything heavier than an $100 bill (his surgeons words), can only eat small meals and he can't drive. He has a appointment on Tuesday to see the surgeon for a follow up and hopefully he'll be able to drive after that. No heavy lifting for several weeks so that means he can't work!

I have to say we were very happy with the hospital and the treatment from the nurses and everyone. He never waited more than a minute after he pressed the button for the nurse and they went out of their way to make sure he was comfortable all of the time! Way to go Providence Park Hospital!

It's freezing cold right now. Today's high is supposed to be around 14 degrees! Later in the week it's going into the 20's. That should feel like a heat wave. Right about now I wish I lived in Florida with my buddy Sally! Well not exactly with you, Sally but you know what I mean!!

Yesterday I went to the Salvation Army store and Goodwill to wander around for a few hours. I bought two queen sheets at the Salvation Army store to put on our couch in the family room. We keep it covered unless we have company due to the fact that we have so many freakin' cats and they lay all over the furniture! If we didn't keep it covered I would never be able to clean off all of the cat hair! Anyway, I bought matching beige sheets for the couch! There used to be one white sheet and one blue flowered sheet (classy, I know!) See?

Isn't it beautiful? Keeping it covered all of the time has kept it pretty new looking, too. And when we take it off for company, we feel like we got new furniture! Now I need to find one more beige sheet for the recliner!

Back to work tomorrow. Can't say I really mind because I am beginning to go a little stir crazy being home all of the time. Being at work will be a nice break!

I can't believe I just wrote that!!

LOLOL!! I can't believe you just wrote that either!!

So glad Rick is doing well; sounds like a long recovery though.

Hey, it was 23 here this morning, cold for us. But, you could live with me; the only thing when the girls are all here they'd either keep you in stitches or drive you nuts. That's why I am NUTS!! Just sayin'. :)

A little cabin fever huh? Great news about Rich. If he keeps on healing he'll be back at it in no time.

Haha sometimes work and a trip to SA and GW is a huge break from being inside the house through all this time. Thanks for sharing and the visit.

So glad your husband is home and recovering, and that the pain isn't too bad. It's a great idea to cover the furniture. It saves so much hassle.
