Hey I love the husband - he's a great guy but I noticed something about him, I never saw before. When he got that heart procedure, he milked it for 2 weeks! I remember the Cardiologist telling me, 48 hours and then just take it easy for a day or so. NOT my husband. He chose to do absolutely nothing. The weather was rainy on and off during that time. We had some work done on our vehicles and meanwhile the grasses grew, the weeds grew and our yards became a jungle;
He did go to work after a week, but he was on "light-duty".
Last year, I started having some major pain in my gut. I used to call them my GERD attacks. One evening, I had such a bad attack, I threw up for 5 hours! It was so bad, I was throwing up stomach acid! I did not go to emergency! One week later, I had another attack, and this time, I went to emergency and it was then, they determined my gallbladder was full of stones and needed to come out. I waited one month before I could get into surgery. I had 2 smaller attacks, that month - could not eat hardly anything. It really cramped my summer style last year!
After the surgery, I felt fantastic. We took a vacation 6 days later and I probably shouldn't have hiked so much, but I did. I was a real trouper.
Now, I realize a heart is much more important than a gallbladder. But they only gave him a local and he was awake through the whole procedure. Yes, he had a small incision near his groin. With me, they knocked me out and took out the gallbladder which burst upon removal. I had 3 small incisions on my stomach and 1 through my naval. Just saying...
So now we are playing catch up on the yards - when I go out to do errands and come back, he's done nothing - always making an excuse. He never was like that before. Of course, he's never been 60 years old before either. I get, that he needs to slow down, and I hate to be thinking negative but...
is he milking this????
He just told me he needs to take a day, to do some hiking.
I'm nice- but I'm not dumb. I'm calling around to get some bids on a gardening service to come and do a one time, major yard clean up. It's gonna CO$T him.
