I don't know how much more he can take....

Jason can barely even stand up, much less walk without severe pain right now. He told his boss that he doesn't think he is going to be able to go to work until after the surgery. I feel so bad for him, and there is very little I can do to help him other than take care of errands and that sort of thing for him, prescriptions, etc. Our kitchen counter looks like a freaking pharmacy. He is taking Oxycontin every 12 hours, 2 Percoset every 4 hours, and a Flexaril every 6 hours. He can't take any anti-inflammatories because they thin your blood, as well as they can keep you from healing as fast as you would without them, so they don't want any in his system before the surgery so that he will heal up ok. His mom made us sloppy joes tonight, which was awesome because I wound up having to run errands for a while after work, then run a bath for J, and then massage his muscles for him for a while. I just got done eating. J is nauseous from the pain and didn't feel like eating. My house is the biggest mess that it has ever been and I have tons of phone calls that I need to make. I am sooo ready for it to be a month from now!

Oh Linda - how awful!! I wish there was something we could all do to help you. I hope the next month goes by really quickly for you and I will be praying for you both.
