Chris and I found ourselves back in the hospital Monday night. Just to let everyone know, there was a minor complication with his surgery and the doctors found an 8x5 cm abscess sitting on top of his bladder. On Tuesday a drainage tube was put inside him and it will continue to drain for the next two weeks. We wanted to give an update, but didn't want anyone to lose their lunch so we won't post a picture.
So after we moved across the country, we put our unregistered, white SUV aside to use our registered, white SUV. Well, tonight the Explorer has been reawakened. We had our first big snowfall of the year (I know, late). And Chris, who was told by the surgeon that it takes 3 months for muscle to heal and he shouldn't be lifting anything heavy, decided that we MUST put the plow on the car. Needless to say, I did some heavy lifting. Turns out the intimidating plow isn't so back-breaking after all, and Chris finally felt like he's accomplished something since his surgery.
Here he is, in all his "i'm-wearing-pj's-because-i'm-recovering-from-surgery" glory. And no worries, he opted out of shoveling. So after two hours of mild activity, the little bugger was wiped out and spent the rest of the night on the couch.
