he slept all day - just like the doctor said. and i finally went down at about 4pm. the cops banging on our door - banging, banging, banging - woke us at about 6pm. we gave our statements - his was much more coherent than mine. they took pictures of his injuries. a few friends called. he apparently was up and made comments on this blog while i slept. his head, and elbow, and cheek were killing him.
he ate 7 eggs, 3 tomatoes and a bunch of one-yr old aged cheddar. then i made him drink some chicken broth that i had made from herbs and a chicken carcass. he took some more naproxen(?) that the doctor gave us. and he went down again. thank my Beautiful Lord!
the whole time that he was up all he talked about is how his "vaccuuming" arm is still fine. my friends - he is one hurting unit.
but he slept. and he ate. which means he does not have a concussion.i have spoken to the nurses at the hotline. i am going to take PracticalP's advice about his elbow. but he seems ok.
so now i just need Warlock, SC, PracticalP, Stephen, Mudbug and a few of you others to come down and sit on him for a few days while i try and get him to re-cooperate. cuz he is gonna be hell to try to keep from doing jobs around the house for the next few days. i need you guys!
i am trying to think of a way to thank you all for your comments to me and him...we have since discovered that my cheek is swollen from buddy punching me, i have 5 perfect fingerprints on my arm, and some blonde girl tried to hit me in the nose and missed - but i got a bit of a bump!
this week was supposed to be about getting the house done. it's now about getting him healed. i need a few volunteers to help me hold him down. i'll pay for the plane tickets, k?
thank you all from the bottom of my heart. i will leave individual comments in a few days. i honestly could't even read through the indidvidual comments left on the last 2 posts.
thank you all so much.
