We met with the surgeon yesterday and the surgery is much more intense than we initially were told. My husband will require 7 days in the hospital and then a six week period of no lifting or working and this is if he recovers on time. Do you know how hard it will be to keep him from doing nothing? This is the guy who tinkers on his jalopy and is constantly doing something because he can't just sit. I've considered teaching him to hand piece but honestly he won't go for it! Perhaps applique? Hmmm
The surgeon also instructed my husband avoidance of stair climbing during recovery. Here we are in this rental home that is all about stairs with all bedrooms and the showers up. We have awesome builders who are moving up the date we get the home to accomodate the situation we are now in. We should get the new home Dec 6th with just a few days to get everything moved before he goes to surgery. Granted there will be no time for decorating the new home at least the heavy work is done and he will have comfort with single level living.
I have my moments of crying, rants, raves and all that goes with and that this is a simple wake up call of what is really and truly important in life.
Last week when we were at the house my husband took a few pictures. The above is a part of the front door. I love the scroll work. We were also surprised when we walked in to see cabinetry going in as well. My kitchen cabinets are a bisque color.
Quilting - - I'm doing what I can to get the tops "frosted" that are here. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
