OK, nightmare at the doc office Saturday morning. Every muscle in her body was shaking from so much pain. Doc says I can not examine her eye with her so distraught. I'm crying, I say "she can not take much more of this pain." Doc says "this is not a hospital, I don't have anything for pain here." He looks in her eye and says it's healing right and gives us script for Vicodin. He says if she needs a pill for pain, take it every 6 hours. We get back to her house and son n law says he is getting very sick with sore throat and ear pain and does not think he should be around sober daughter. I think that is a damn good idea, so he goes to his parents. So, I've been at her house since Saturday morning trying every thing humanly possible to ease the pain, i.e. hot rags, ice packs, double Vicodin, prayer, crying, pacing....ya know. My cell phone was dead. They have no phone, no Internet, no cable. I slept with her when she slept, I sat up with her when she could. This afternoon, he returned and I showed him all the logs of med times and how to put the drops in and so on. I sat in their drive way for 30 minutes trying to get the nerve to pull away. The only thing that helped is that I took off work tomorrow and I will be there at 6:30am when he pulls away for work. Her physical stamina was much better today, but she still has not opened either eye since the surgery Friday morning. If someone is not with her, she can not do anything for herself. She tried very hard to open the good eye today, but it causes the hurt one to move when she does and the pain just doubles her over.
I missed Christmas, my husband just kept saying "me and Theo are doing fine...just do what you need to do." That helped.
Jeeze this has been so hard. Thanks for all your prayers my sweet friends.
