Poor poor DH

We are recovering well from better than my DH. I hardly have any bruising, the soreness is slowly fading and I'm finally learning how and what to eat without causing pain. DH is still very sore and has a BIG OL' BRUISE. He's doing ok though.

I got completely scared last night. I knew his belly was bruised, but when we got home last night (driving home from my parents), he lifted his shirt and I freaked out. This is what I saw...

I was having DH get dressed to take him to the ER, when I remembered that our surgeon had told us to call him if ANYTHING was happening between our neck and our hips. So I called his cell phone on News Year Eve at 10:00pm and HE ANSWERED!!! Can you believe it?!?! I was so suprised. He told me to relax. It was caused by a shot of Heparin and trauma during surgery...all the blood was just rising to the surface. He said it happens, although it's not the usual. He also called in a new pain med perscription within 10 minutes as well. Although we couldn't pick it up until this morning.

So our NYE was spent in bed, DH sleeping and me watching TV. We are wild party animals! HAHAH!


  1. Ouch!!! Poor guy! Hope he feels better soon!

  2. oh my goodness! I winced as soon as I opened this post. Poor guy! I hope he feels better soon!

  3. I would have been terrified, too! Poor guy!!! Glad it's nothing serious!!
