View Full Version : JEFF'S SURGERY

January 27th, 2015, 08:28 PM
Jeff had his surgery early this morning and made it out of recovery about 3 pm. He had a couple of rough patches in but he made it through. I will spend the night with him tonight and possibly tomorrow night. Turns out his nurse is a good friend of mine who took care of my late husband Mike. It's nice to have a friend here.

Jeff won't be allowed to get up until tomorrow due to having an epidural rather than general anesthesia because of his breathing issues.

Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. We feel blessed for your faithfulness and friendship.

Hugs and thanks, Barb

Glad to hear he made it through ok. Make sure he lays flat on his back until he is completely thawed out from that spinal block. It's no fun at all getting a spinal headache when some of the fluid leaks out because someone props you up.

Happy to hear he is out of surgery. Hoping you both rest well this evening and prayers continuing.

Thank you for the update, you both were on my mind today! Still praying for a quick recovery.
I know you feel better now at least in part with a friendly nurse helping you guys through.

I've been watching for your post, glad to hear that he is in his room now. Thankful that it's over and that you're by his side, also that you're not alone there. God was watching out for you by having that nurse there for you as support.

Will let Kat/Matt know right away, she's been waiting for word as well. Don will have to wait until tomorrow morning most likely. I know he would send his well wishes.

Don't forget to take care of yourself as well Barb. Can't have you get sick. ((Barb)) Hugging you through cyber space, please give Jeff our love and a gentle hug too. :)

Whew! Bet you both gave a gigantic sigh of relief. I know your report made me feel that way. I've had you both in my heart and on my mind all day long. Here's to a quick and very successful recovery period. Glad you have someone special there with you (other than that guy you love so much, that is - he's a given!!)

Now you can start to rest some. I pray this added stress doesn't cause a lupus flare-up for you. So, be sure you take care of Barb, too.
