Hello to you 2011! So nice to see you come around. Can you please be an easier year for us than 2010 was?
For anyone who is wondering about Randall's last stay in the hospital, he was released the next day. So he was able to ring in the New Year with his family. It was nice to have him home.
Nice to have him home and stressful at the same time.
I have been in mother-hen mode pretty much since he walked in through the door. I know he hates mother-hen mode but he never complains about it.
Mother hen mode is me asking him a barrage of questions to see if he is OK.
This is me:
"Are you OK?"
"Do you feel OK?"
"Are you sure you're OK?"
"Are you nauseous?"
"Are you going to throw-up??"
"Can I do anything for you?"
I know the answer to the last one would probably be, "Yeah, leave me the fuck alone." But he has never said anything like that to me, ever.
It's stressful for him. It's stressful for me. I worry so much when he gets sick like he has been. He tries to protect me when things start getting bad. He will tell me that everything is fine. Sadly, I have been down this road way too many times before and I know that we will be visiting the hospital sometime soon.
He slept all day Sunday. When the pain is as severe as it has been, that is how he deals with it. He sleeps. And I leave him alone. I let him sleep. I figure that when he sleeps his body is healing. And then I hope that when he wakes up, he feels a little bit better than he did before.
He finally woke up around midnight, maybe a little later. And asked for some soup. As I was leaving the room, he looks at me and says, "Thank you. Thank you for letting me sleep and thank you for taking care of me. I don't know how you have stayed with me as long as you have. Especially since I have been so sick. If it was reversed and you were the sick one, I would stay with you of course but it would be hard."
I just nodded my head. Pretty sure he didn't mean that to come out the way it did. He's funny with his words sometimes. I know that if the situation was reversed, he would do all that I have done for him plus some.
So remember my makeover by Kaylee last week? The one where Randall got a makeover too? Well, I asked him and was quickly told that I was not allowed to post those pictures, ever.
I figured if I couldn't post the whole picture, I would post part of the picture!
Hee hee! I can be so freaking sneaky sometimes!
Without further adieu, here's part of Randall's make-over picture:
Think he was just a little surprised?
I giggle every time I look at this picture. It is priceless!
So much for trying to tell me what I can and can't post!
