steven's surgery
hidden words of love
sinsitykitty
So steven had his surgery yesterday. I feel so helpless right now, he's in pain, can't move, and is pissed that this is happening at all. After the surgery, we came home and he took valum and robaxin (now if you know these pills, they aren't for pain) Anywho, at about 730pm, Steven is starting to get really uncomfortable and the pain is unbareable. I called his supervisor to see if we had options at the base.

He called the ER and asked if admitting him was an option. They said that hte only thing they could do was look him over and go from there. Well I get caleb out of bed and dressed, then I get Steven dressed and everyone loaded into the car. (Oh and I know that I'm storng but a drugged and injuryed 165 lb man is not easy to load into a car) When we get to the ER (8pm) I had to pretty much beg the nurses for a wheelchair (stupid skanks) They load him in a chair, take him into the ER, and I go park the car (in frickin BFE with the wind blowing like a bitch)

When I get back to the ER, Steven is already in the back (thats gotta be a record or somethin). Anyways, they weren't going to let back there with him, but I pitched enough of a bitch fit to finally go back and be with him. The doc comes in and starts giving us the third degree about how this was an out-patient procedure and that we should have called them if Steven was in pain, and that they should have given him something for the pain to start with.  First of all, I tried calling them, but they were closed and there was no other number to call the doctor.  Second, he's military and this is a military hopstial...so shut hte fuck up and help him you whiny bitch.  Third, if they had giving him anything for the pain, we wouldn't have come all the across NLV to get some help.

The doctor ordered some IV pain meds and BOY OH BOY did they work fast.  They injected the meds and flushed it with some saline.  As soon and the saline was pushed, Steven said that he could feel the pain start to disappear.  THANK THE LORD.  

At 10pm they decide that Steven is better and send him packing, but we were ready to go anyways.  So I load Caleb and a now heavily drugged 165 lb man into the car (by myself I might add...stupid hospital...oh lil babies didn't want to get cold) and off we go to home.  Caleb was passed out, thank the lord for small favors, and Steven was comfortable enough to sleep, he slept on the couch but still it was sleep.

So now its morning and Caleb is being a hell monkey and Steven is back into some pain but he's dealing with it the best he can.  

SO I KNOW THAT THIS WILL BE GROSS AND NO ONE WILL LOOK, BUT I SAHRE MY WHOLE LIFE ON LJ SO i MIGHT AS WELL SHARE PICS TOO.  WHAT STEVEN'S SURGERY LOOKED LIKE AFTER

** WARNING** BLOOD AND GROSS-NESS

I work with surgeons-- this is nothing honey ;)

anywho-- what fucking morons (excuse my language)
I've heard very bad things about military docs-- actually, I work w/ one who rocks- but he says it's SO different here than it was there, especially the whole "caring" factor.

I'm sorry about the whole pain thing :( boo to that, but glad everything turned out nicely in the end!
*get well wishes to your family*
