I was able to sleep last night with no pain meds from 11:30pm to 6:45am. Once the pain meds kicked in today, I have had constant nausea and have thrown up twice. My stomach is very bloated and I have an incision from my lower abdomen almost up to my sternum. Needless to say, it hurts really bad when I get sick. I know this is short term and I should be feeling better soon. It felt good to shower today. Not sure when I will get to go home because the IV is all I have for nutrition. My mouth is extremely dry and I tried crackers, but they stick to my teeth.
Psalms 40:1-4 "I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord. Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust."
I know the pain I'm in will be short term and while I wait I pray my eyes stay on Jesus and not the things that don't matter in this life. I've been able to walk the around the 5th floor several times today.
Tony has been with me day and night and I'm so blessed to have him.
