John has his second carpal tunnel surgery this morning. I'm sitting here now just waiting for them to call to tell me I can go back. It shouldn't be too much longer. Dr. Rigsby called about 10 and said he was on his way to recovery. It didn't take him long to come out from under the anesthesia last time. Dr. Rigsby said this one went well, too. Yea! Maybe John will have some relief! Since he had his left wrist done three weeks ago (today, as a matter of fact) he hasn't had the first problem with it. Not once has it gone to see or had that tingly feeling. The funny thing, though, is that whenever he needs a jar opened, he hands it to me. He hasn't gotten his strength back yet, and it may take another couple of months before he does. (Heaven forbid that he never gets it all back. He is perfectly capable of doing things, but it would be frustrating to go through the rest of his life having to ask people to open jars for him.)
He'll see Dr. Rigsby again a week from tomorrow to get the stitches out, and I guess they'll schedule the neck surgery at that time. Now, THAT surgery makes me nervous! I know so many people who have had this surgery, and all have done well, but still...it's scary to me!
I've used this morning to be productive. I got several research papers graded. The rest HAVE to be finished by Tuesday. I'll use Friday (Senior Honors Day) to try to finish up so I don't have to do them over the weekend. I want to play this weekend. :)
Gotta run. Hopefully, the next phone call will be the one telling me I can go back, get John dressed, and be on our way.
As always, have a GREAT day!
