Just made it home after spending the day at the hospital. They won't let me stay all night with him in ICU so it is about 35 minute drive home depending on traffic. 
It has been a trying weekend, but the blood count has held after 7 units from the time of surgery until last night. 
Today was spent dealing with the pain medicine. You buy yarn at Lowe's, His heart monitor need plugged in, except he was hooked up to a wireless one,  he itched, just a few of the things to deal with.The way he was scratching, I was afraid that  he would get where he was scratching bleeding. They came in and gave him medicine for that so between the two he was almost to sleep as I was getting ready to leave. They did sit him up in a chair, but he was so afraid that he was going to fall. they took pictures of his foot this morning. It is not broke just badly bruised so needless say his whole right side is very painful to try to put any wait on it.
They bent the rules so he could see his grandson  yesterday. It made him feel a little better seeing him.  I will have to take pictures of what I have got done at the hospital. I made my first embroidered handkerchief. 
Well I need to go to bed. All prayers are greatly appreciated. Have a good week. I just want the month over with.

Hi, Shirley,
Just checking in to see how things are going for you and your hubby. It sounds like he is making some progress so that is good. I know he loved seeing his grandson. These grandchildren have a way of brightening up even the darkest of days. Take care of yourself, sweet friend. I know your embroidery is looking beautiful. Love the pieces you are showing in your header! Lots of love and hugs~Vicki, your Texas friend
