Totally Perc'ed

I got up at 4 AM this morning.

We took a drive into the BIG city and didn't even see the sunrise.

My man, had surgery on his left foot.  Two Three tumors were removed from the arch along with some of the tendon.  The most sensitive part of the foot.  The area that I scream loudly if tickled.  (and it gets tickled a lot), sliced open.

He has stitches and a bloodsucking drain.  These little test tubes, attached to the drain, need to be switched out everytime they are half filled with blood.  It REALLY IS as gross as it sounds. Thankfully he hasn't filled the tube, not even close.  We both are watching it.

To say that he is in agony, is an understatement.  Although I do believe he has finally gotten enough medication in his system ... because he is sleeping soundly.  Finally.  Which is good.

I'm fretting about having to work tomorrow.  I know he and the older kids will handle everything just fine and I'm anxious to start my vacation.  (August 27th through September 6th, woot!)

I am also dying to get organizing.  I mean really people, the totes in the front hallway are just callin' my name.

At least it's Friday tomorrow.  Right? Breathe!

I'm so glad the surgery went well, although the post-surgery sounds nasty! Here's to a quick recovery!! Let me know if you need anything!
