Thank You For Your Prayers

Still no computer
of my own.
Just popping in to tell you that
my son-in-law's surgery was
a success.
Thank you so very much for
all the prayers and support.

They were a bit late getting started
and his pain meds wore off
before they wheeled him out
but he soldiered on.
As you all know, I can find
humor even in tense moments.

While we were waiting, Big J was
sitting upright in a recliner with
his open backed gown on
and his to-the-hip support hose.
Someone walked in and he
pulled up his gown to show
how far up his stockings went
forgetting he had
NO UNDERWEAR ON.
My daughter and I laughed
until we cried.
Thanks for asking but
No-I won't be posting a picture
of THAT!

He has several weeks of recovery
ahead of him which we know
will not be easy.

So.....now that your prayers
have covered him I think you
better pray for my daughter
we all KNOW what
babies men really are
while he is home recovering.
I don't know what it's like at YOUR HOUSE-
but when MyHero gets a cold it is
THE WORST COLD ANYONE
HAS EVER HAD.
Meanwhile, while I have the
SAME COLD
I am doing laundry, dishes, cooking
and taking care of
THE SICKEST MAN IN THE WORLD.
Yeah-I KNOW YOU KNOW what
I am talking about.
Amen

  3. Amen, Sista! Well, you know what they say, "If men were the ones to have babies, there would be no children". I laughed out loud when I read about your son-in-law lifting his gown. I'm sure he needed to be embarrassed on top of everything else. Glad to hear everything went well. My thoughts are with your daughter! : )

  7. Diana, Yes, it is so true. There are some exceptions but not many. I will continue to pray for your s-i-l to have a fast recovery and for your daughter to have the patience of Job...she'll need it. Stay strong Diana, you are the glue. xoxo,Susie

  8. show and tell is never a good idea after surgery, huh?:) glad he is doing well, diana!

  9. I'm glad you can all be there to support each other. Prayers continue. My father in law is having back surgery on Thursday. Somehow, I don't think he's going to bounce back as quickly as your young son in law.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Happy to hear it went well!!! Just a couple of hints that we learned from my hubs back surgery last summer: get a toilet seat riser, a tub chair, and a "grabber" to help with picking things up. All things we never thought of until the last minute scramble! We were able to borrow all of these items for free from our local thrift store. Speedy recovery! Jane

    ReplyDelete
  11. Amen to that Sista! LOL! I wish you SIL a speedy recovery for his sake and your daughters! Too funny about the picture you didn't take....but we all can imagine without a picture. HA!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm so glad everything went well and your daughter is in my prayers, I know exactly what you mean!
    Little bit of an embarrassing moment there I'd say, oh my!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Glad all went well Diana, and hope he is up and around soon... oh and I am lucky, Jack never complains about a cold or anything...just keeps on doing his thing no matter what comes his way... I need to get an attitude like his... xoxo Julie Marie

  14. Hi Diana, I just started playing catch up from the last week and a half being MIA and had no idea your SIL had surgery...so glad it all went well! I so know what you mean about "MEN" LOL!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Glad he's going to be fine. I'll continue to pray for him during his recovery...your daughter could snap at any time and send him back to the hospital. LOL My husband is lucky to have "survived" his recovery after his knee surgeries. Will pray for strength for your girl! Poor thing. ;)

  21. Yes, I would say the woman needs the prayers as much if not more, than the man. Happens every time.

    Best wishes for his quick recovery.

    So happy to hear your SIL's surgery went well. Praying for a speedy recovery for him and strength and patience for your daughter.

  26. I am glad everything went well. I had to laugh about the men being sick. So true. They really need all the attention in the world when they become sick!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm so relieved his surgery went well! I'll say a prayer for a happy recovery!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I just read both posts and I'm so glad the surgery went well. You had me laughing at the end. Ten years ago, my husband had serious surgery and was home 5 weeks. The first week I was so nice to him (he really needed me to be)but by the second week I was telling him to go to the basement or bedroom and stay there and by week three I was counting the days until he went back to work.

    He really didn't complain, but there is something about having someone sitting around in a robe while you are working that just made me crazy!

    Continued prayers for both the patient and the caregiver!

  29. Hi Diana, I somehow missed this-maybe I was in Ca. when you posted about it...but lifting your sil up now, for a speedy recovery and total healing from our Lord. I've missed you my friend. Blessings on your day.

  30. That's wonderful! First hurdle over with, now the long stretch ahead. Oh, how I remember my husband's surgery when he tore everything in his knee that could possibly tear. Those were long weeks and I finally had to hide the pain pills when the doctor said no more! We laugh now about what big babies men can be.

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOL...I know, my daughter had her hands full all by her slim self, as her hubby is also a very tall young man!! Boy, did she have a kid with her for at least three months, than the baby got stronger...heheheheheeee Of course I'll pray for both of them!
    Big hugs,

  33. So glad that he is doing okay.
    Oops on the visual. Hah. That's probably happened to alot of us. Embarassing but funny.
    My son promised to help me when my husband had surgery. My son had his second back surgery and no one escept my husband could handle him. He even stayed overnight two nights with him. So mu son said he owed me. But my hubby was really good.

    ReplyDelete
  34. OMG, that is something a MIL never really wants to see! Poor guy, he'll never live that down..
    I hope he recovers quickly-from it all.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I will still pray for Big J's back. I was took a blogging break for a few days, so I missed the previous post (which I have since read). And AMEN to the men being a baby thing. And AMEN to the "even though I have the same cold, I managed to clean the house take care of the kids." It's a phenomenon I tell you...

    XOXO,
    Meredith

  42. Praise be to the Lord he is recovering - yay.

    As for your last prayer request?

    Oh boy yes ma'am I understand THAT one completely.

    I have a fella who last night ran into a euro sham DOWN pillow and actually said "ow." I was quick to tease: "You aren't seriously hurting running into that down-filled pillow, dear?"

    He said it was just a habit to say ow and that his joints were aching.

    Yes, I am praying for your daughter. It takes the patience of a saint sometimes to get through these things.

    Hugs.

  43. I'm glad to hear the surgery went well, it's the at home adjustments that kill! And yes, I'll be praying for his wife!! My hubby doesn't complain about pain, just the food!

  60. So glad to hear that everything went well for him in surgery. Yes, the recovery will not be fun. Your daugher will probably need a break herself after caring for him. She will have a lot on her plate right now.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm so glad he is recovering and the surgery went well. I'll definitely keep praying for continued healing.
    Now, about having to take care of the big sick baby... you couldn't have said it any better.

  84. Hi Diana
    I just stumbled on this post and found out about the surgery. I'm sending your son-in-law my prayers. I've been there before, right in a hospital room like yourself. Except the surgery was for my son. And I know how relieving it is when it's all over. Take care.

  106. Hope he is doing well. I hate falling behind on my blogging. My husband is a big baby. My father was too. The day I got home from having my second child, he went on and on about how his toe he stubbed and the pain he was in. Really?
