The nurse called today to check on him.
Nurse wanted to know if YOU had been putting the ice bag on me. I told her no.
I said ... if you will remember, you were freezing yesterday and it took a very long time to warm you up.
yeah, I know but she was concerned about the swelling.
I said, I haven't notice any swelling. I was more concerned about your doing the breathing exercises, you looked really white.
Well, I think I'm swollen.
I look. Well? it's not much larger than your other side, dear.
He pokes it and says .... feels larger.
I go get a mirror.
look ... it's larger
Doesn't look larger to me. I think you're doing very well. I'm amazed at how well you are doing. I thought there were would bruising or redness or something but you look fine.
Looks more with the mirror... well it's larger and where's the ice bag?
I don't know... don't recall bringing one in.
You didn't bring the ice bag? you had it...
I put everything the nurse gave me in my bag... I don't recall an ice bag. Let me look in the freezer and see what we can use ... ah... there's a bag of Ghirardelli double chocolate bean coffee! yum... let's try that
I'll put water in a ziploc bag and freeze it.
Nurse also asked if I had any indigestion and I told her no and now I have indigestion. He's telling me this as he is eating the last jalapeno olive in the jar.
You're not supposed to eat spicy stuff.
I wanted a pencil jar.
A pencil jar?
Yes... this is the right shape.
aw... he's really had a pretty rough evening. He lies down... sits up ... reclines ... reads...plays computer games ... gets on Facebook ... burps... hurts...
He's snoring away right now but feels a bit clammy.... sigh
bad sounds from him and he's drinking his green tea...
my throat's dry... feel awful
that's because you're snoring with your mouth open...
oh ... that'd be why...
got any duck tape?
Happy Valentine's Day, y'all...
