Wesley Chapel, Florida (high 80, low 60)
Al had his sinus surgery yesterday, and got through it okay. We got to the surgery center at 7am and didn’t get home until about 4:30. It was a very long day. My favorite way to spend a day is NOT in a hospital waiting room.
He woke up from the surgery in a good deal of pain. The nurse gave him a pain pill and it helped. We had already picked up a prescription for pain meds, so we kept the pain pills going throughout the night. He is not having any pain this morning. He was extremely wobbly all day yesterday and I was worried he would fall. I don’t recall him being like that after any other surgery. He’s okay this morning and in no pain. He just has to be careful not to bend over or lift anything heavy. He thinks that means I should wait on him hand and foot. He will have to take it easy for about a week. I already had to remind him no heavy lifting…he just walked out carrying Baxter.
Hurricane Sandy skirted the east coast of Florida yesterday. We’re on the west coast so all we got were some gusty winds. This morning the winds have lightened up and we awoke to a pretty red sky. The old saying held true ….red sky at night, sailors delight….red sky in morning, sailor take warning.
Hurricane season ends November 30th. I sure hope Sandy is the last one we see this year. October frequently heats up and then it winds down in November. We want to go to the Keys, but don’t want to be there worrying about a hurricane.
