What a day...Rick has been nauseated ever since the surgery and today it caused some problems. This morning he had a possible small seizure...I say possible because I saw it, and described it to the doctors, and they say "possible" siezure. It lasted less than 30 seconds and his vitals and responsiveness were normal afterwards. The doctors believe it was probably caused by the anesthetic and all the stimulation Rick had yesterday. I also call the Medtronic Nurse this morning (Medtronic is the brand of pump) and she believes the same thing. It scared me. Dr Nguyen (Physical Med Doctor for Pate) came to see Rick this afternoon and thought he looked dehydrated which would also contribute to a seizure so he sent us to Allen to the hospital for fluids, labwork and a catscan. Everything came back normal and we got back to the house at 7:00.
I never thought I would have a worse anniversary than our first one...but we topped it today. On our first anniversary Rick was working for the power plant and had to go to a plant around Abilene for outage...this meant working 7 days a week for weeks on end. I remember I went to Abilene the weekend before our anniversary and spent it with him, then got up early on Monday morning (the 28th) to drive back to Vernon for work. I stopped in Seymour along the way and my brothers were out of school that day for some reason, and Adam was hauling hay...all by himself. And he asked if I would help him. So, I was feeling so sorry for myself that I just couldn't make it to work...I called my boss and stayed in Seymour hauling hay that day! Then on our 3rd wedding anniversary that's when Miss Riley made her debut and we'll never top that anniversary!
On our wedding night we danced to "Keeper of The Stars" by Tracy Byrd. I think tonight we all need to tip our hats to the keeper of the stars for all the blessings He's given us. It's not always easy, but we have to keep trusting.
Thanks to everyone who made Riley's day special with phone calls and gifts...we are so blessed to have such great friends and family.
God Bless You All!
