Is this me being so cranky??

The week that hubby was in the hospital with his new total knee surgery  I drank way toooo much coffee and soda (already was drinking too much coffee)  Ended up with stomach pain so decided I better drastically reduce it all.  So I cut to just 2 cups of coffee a day.  Went thru some headaches but not bad.  The worse, and it surprised me, was that I felt like the chicken in this cartoon.  I felt very emotional, edgy, and irritable.  Seems I dropped everything and lost the rest.  Starting to feel better today.

So enough about me.  It was so good to get hubby home from the hospital.  Surg was on Tue. at 9 am.  By 2 pm he was up in a chair and next morning walked down hall and sat up for over an hour.  Took only 2 hits on the morphine (makes his nauseated)  So went to pain pills and had last one on Wed night. Also the Dr. has changed his routine and started him on Celebrex the day before surg, and resumed the day he got home.  He has had almost NO swelling other than a little dependant swelling between knee and ankle. He uses his ice machine for pain that is stirred up by his therapy treatments.  His therapy has been ahead of schedule and he will probably be ready for out patient therapy by late next week.  He thought he was pretty smart and went down the stairs to visit his sister on day 8 of surg.  Hasn't done it again and I wasn't home when he did it.  But appetite is good and he will be back to normal real soon.  Thanks for the get well wishes we received.

Feels good to be back to the store at least the last 2 days.  I think my customers forgot me but thats OK they will be back.
Have one more craft show to do at a local Elementary school that should be good, next Saturday.  We actually set up Fri evening and folks have bought tickets to get early previews and buying.  Small space but it should work out and be fun.
Well headed home.  Monday to Dr. to get his staples out, he will walk in with no cane just like last time.  MEN  such show offs!
