Randomness at 4:55 am

I have nothing better to do with my insomniac self in the middle of the night at Duke. I'm trying to be quiet, so that I don't wake Jason. I did manage to sneak some M&M's. Nothing more randomly fun than eating chocolate, eh?

They gave me a big 'ole boost of IV steroids yesterday during surgery. The anesthesiologist said that normal people produce extra steroids in their body as a response to stress during surgery, and that because I'm a chronic steroid user, my body would most likely not respond like it's supposed to... SO they gave me some help. I am going to assume that's why I'm wide awake now. And the fact that pain meds give me energy instead of making me sleepy like they do some people.

Here is my sweet husband snoozing. You can see the lights across the street at the VA hospital and my computer in the reflection. We forgot our camera, so all we are getting are photo booth photos with the Mac.

My pain is better managed now. I got a really good resident in here to see me last night. He stayed and chatted with J and me for a good while. Such a nice guy!!!

I'll let you know later if they are discharging me today. Keep your fingers crossed!! :)

Why are we both up at 5:05AM!?

What a sweet hubby you have!!! Praying for you to be discharged tomorrow! You're looking too pretty to be there and I think you've been busted. :)

We should be Skye-ing right now!

Why not blog when you can't sleep?! Your sweet hubby did a great job keeping all of us updated yesterday! Glad your pain is better managed now. Hope that the surgery & irrigation keeps the bad bone destroying stuff at bay!

Carrie said...

Keeping my fingers crossed that you get discharged today!

Kristin said...

Hi Christy! Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog!! We're so excited! I hope you feel better and I'll be praying that you get out of the hospital soon!!!

Tina said...

Yay Christy I was rooting for you. I'm glad to see your out and in your usual positive frame of mind. Push for those pain meds, remember they don't feel your pain so don't be afraid to be agressive with them.
Your husband was awfully sweet yesterday, and looks like an angel snoozing there. Ha!
Take care of yourself!

I enjoyed the updates from Jason and my fingers are crossed for today.
