We made a visit to the surgeon today because Jim is still having a great deal of pain in his upper right leg and we weren’t sure if that was to be expected. His incision is healing nicely and isn’t very sore unless one of the girls jumps on it.
The doctor explained that the soreness is from the removal of the vein that was used to create the bypass around the blockage. He couldn’t give us a timeframe for how the pain will last but it could be awhile. That means Jim is still taking the pain medication which means he still can’t drive.
And that means I still have to drive. Gives me the incentive to get out and to Walmart by 7:00 am before the crowds arrive so its easy to park the truck.
The pain medications have taken away Jim’s desire for food so making sure he has something to eat for his diabetes can be a challenge. I’ll know he’s getting better when he wants to eat dinner again.
Skittlez makes sure he gets outside every day. It’s his job to take her out and she runs and hides behind his legs if I suggest I take her out. Scooter doesn’t care who takes her as long as she gets to go outside.
It’s been cold and windy here. Sure not typical Arizona Fall weather. Supposed to have sunshine and 70’s the rest of the week. Pretty nice considering what many other states are going through.
Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week. But boy am I looking forward to having some turkey.
