Back To Work

You know it's time to post a quick update when folks are writing, wondering what's going on. :)

It fills my heart with such gratitude, that amongst all the chaos in the world, people out there still have our family in their hearts. So thank you for that!

I am happy to report that Chad is doing fairly well! He has more digestion issues and odd pains but all considered - he's recovering nicely!

He has returned to work today! It's a bitter sweet moment, I am sure. Thankfully he enjoys his job but I am sure he'll miss being away from me for hours on end (ha ha) Just Kidding.

As of right now, we're just trucking along and taking life one glorious day at a time!

Thanks for all your love and support!

And The Doc Says...

Chad had his appointment with Dr. Swain this morning in reference to the knot that appeared after a painful sneeze. The knot has grown to a large golf ball sized sac exactly where the hernia was.

Dr. Swain performed an Ultra Sound and while he admitted he couldn't tell if the mesh was still intact by the images obtained, he was confident that it is likely just a sac of fluid/blood/etc., that will hopefully resolve on its own.

It could take months but we have a follow-up appointment with him in two weeks. For now, we're hoping for the best. Chad asked about having it drained but I guess the risk of infection is too great, so we're going to be patient. (I suck at being patient!)

Thanks for your continued love and prayers. xo

Hopefully Nothing But...

Last night Chad was bending over and sneezed. This resulted in an epic amount of pain and the appearance of two knots on either side of his scar, just above his belly button. He spoke to the doctor today but due to it being a Holiday weekend, they can't see him until Wednesday morning.

Hoping and praying it isn't anything serious but I'll update everyone once we know more.

As always, many thanks for the continued love, prayers and support.
