Thankful to be Home

It is just after 2pm and I am one tired girl, 4am is too early for this girl. My husband is sleeping on the couch.

We got to the hospital at 5:45am - just like we were suppose to - according to the paperwork. And of course, then it was a waiting game. He finally went back for his procedure at about 8:10am. In a little less than 30 minutes - the nurse was coming to get me. And I was able to go back and be with him in recovery. I could tell by the way he was acting, while still asleep - moving around as he was - that he was in pain. It took quite some time for him to come out of it. He did quite a bit of coughing up stuff. His eyes were really blood shot too. At one point he felt nauseous, but thankfully did not throw up - don't know if that would be good for him with the procedure that was done.

We were released at probably around 10am. I brought him home. I then went to pick up his meds. One of his meds is Magic Mouthwash - it is a combo that is actually made up for chemo patients. Luckily I did not need any during my chemo. It is Maalox, benedryl, and litacain. He has another med - that he is suppose to take before every meal for the next week. And this Magic Mouthwash is for when ever the pain gets bad. Anyway once I got home from getting the meds - he was hurting so he took both - cause he was hungry too. That is one reason he is sleeping- that and his early alarm this morning.

I was kind of frustrated - it seems that insurances are getting where they cover less and less things. Not the Magic Mouthwash - but the other med - cost $60.00 for maybe 6-8 oz of stuff. That is sad. I miss the days when it was a set price- one price for generic and one price for name brands.

Well I just wanted to check in and say hi and let you all know that things went ok. And that we are home. Thanks so much for the prayers. May God bless each of you! :O)


  1. Praying for both of you--and ouch on the medicine price!

  2. So glad the surgery is behind you guys. God has blessed you both with each other. :). I'm with you on the crazy prices of meds. It has gotten out of hand! Praying for your sweetie to recover quickly and for you to have the strength to be caregiver.

  3. You have my love, prayers, and big hugs.


Hello~ I love getting your comments. I have made a few changes to make things a little easier for you and hoping a more enjoyable experience for both you and I. Have a blessed day! :o)
