hip surgery is a bummer


recuperating from hip surgery doesn’t appear to be any fun. not only did they have to shave her leg for the iv drugs and a part of her back but she is so sore. we didn’t think it would be any fun so we aren’t surprised. but we really did think with all the pain drugs we were being sent home with that she would just be loopy. and, well, she is definitely loopy. but she is also in pain. i tried to move her back leg to look at her incision and she just moaned. it immediately made me cry.


it doesn’t help that i am not 100%. i didn’t sleep last night. i think my sore throat has turned into a chest cold with lots of congestion. it is not any fun to lay awake at 2 in the morning feeling like you can barely grasp for air.


sam just stays at the gate watching her. i don’t know if he is worried about her, curious as to what is going on, mad that she is using his bed, or sad they don’t get to play. i don’t know but he just lays there. every time she gets up, he gets up. really, every time i get up, he gets up.

maybe he is taking care of both of us while daddy is at work.


we are all chilling out today, obviously. catching up on the bachelorette and maybe a few other girlie movies. hopefully catching up on some sleep.

so yeah, hip surgery is a total bummer.

I love the fan right in front of her bed. Such a great idea. I hope she gets to feeling better soon (and that you get some rest!).
