Sleep is a beautiful thing!

Sandra had over 11 hours of uninterrupted sleep last night! She went without pain medication for over 12 hours! That's incredible progress!

I had less sleep than that because I kept getting up to check on her thinking something had to be wrong. We decided to use the intercom system on her phone. That way any time she needed me she could just reach me while I was upstairs in bed. She didn't summon me once during the night. I am so glad she could sleep well!

Getting up for a smoothie this morning for breakfast totally exhausted her again so she is sound asleep once more.

We are awaiting the first visit by the home health care nurse this morning to change the dressing on the wound. The nurse should be coming daily for the next week or so.

Thanks for all of your prayers and support!

  1. Well, this was good news to hear as we went into prayers of the people at church yesterday. I hope Sandra was able to get up and enjoy a bit of the sunshine yesterday. I was wondering if she might be up for a short visit when Jane and I go for our walk this afternoon. Totally your/her call, of course. Maybe we will call before we head out the door. Looking forward to today's post.

  2. Hi Sandra,
    So glad to hear you are home and sleeping lots! There's nothing like sleeping in your own bed in your own home. Sounds like you're getting excellent care! I was thinking of coming over for a little while after work. Is that ok with you?
