Recovery - Day 1

Posted for Sheri by Eric:

Recovery so far has been filled with itching skin from the morphine, almost puking when the nurses stood her up and so many clicking and beeping noises in the room that she was not able to sleep last night. She has a slight fever and so was started on antibiotics to treat "anything that might be brewing". Tonight she is going to ask for some meds to sleep.

Today, however, we have a lot to look forward to. The ostomy nurse will be stopping in today to change the ostomy wafer (Google it) and Reese and Eli will be stopping in after lunch to see their mom. The place is pretty small so I don't know how they will fit, but an awesome man-lift just started working right outside my window as I type this so I know where Eli and I will be . . . right next to the window. Seriously, the view has something to be desired; we are on the 3rd floor looking at the new 8 story addition that is going up so that is the only thing I can see. Correction, I just tested it and with a little neck craning and some weird Yoga maneuver I can see sky, out of which we should be getting 3-5 inches of snow.


  1. Hi Sheri,

    From one homeschooling colonclub mom to another -- Hang in there!
    I love your blog and am so glad to hear surgery and the anticipation is over. Heal well and fast...

  2. Hello Sheri:

    One day at a time Sweet Jesus! Sheri, one step at a time seems a lot some days and no doubt that's how you are feeling today. It is winter and cold outside so there is no rush to go anywhere. My continued prayers are with you.

    Thanks to Eric for keeping us informed of your progress.

    Love and hugs,


  3. Hi Sheri,

    Praying for a speedy recovery.
