Greetings all you blogger pals, Brandies mom here to update you!
Brandie says thank you for all your prayers, good thoughts, love and support.
Well surgery is done and Brandie is a real trooper! She is still quite groggy and very sore. She arrived to her room at about 7:20 this evening. It was killer pain when they moved her into her bed. I couldn't help myself, I cried right along with her!
The nurse gave her the little remote to push when she needs pain medication. The nurse said "you can push it every 6 minutes". Brandie pushed that button immediately! About 2 minutes later she says "has 6 minutes passed yet?" I feel so bad for her!!! She can push that button every 2 seconds, however, the medicine will only dispence after the 6 minutes are up.
Brandie is resting better now. She comes in and out of sleep. She is talking really slow. She keeps telling me and the nurse she feels funny. I told her it's because she keeps pushing that button!! Her blood pressure has been getting a little low and then it gets better, so, they are keeping her on the oxygen overnite.
She can't use her arms to well because they are really sore from the surgery. Yep, you guessed it she is fretting over how in the world shewill be able brush her hair and brush her teeth. Blog Gamit! She worries way too much!!!
Brandie is sleeping really well right now. She is acually snoring! I am happy because she needs lots of rest.
Oh, and I must say her husband is absolutely wonderful. He is so attentive. Today before her surgery she had a headache and he stood there and rubbed her temples to help her feel better.
Well thats all for now. Will update later!
