Week Four Since Surgery – Letter to Husband

Dear Craig;

It has now been four fun filled weeks since your hip replacement and your parents are arriving tomorrow! I am doing the happy dance (Oh, I wish you could see it – well it looks something like this)

I can see the light getting brighter now! I am sure that their arrival could not have come at a better time. I think the pregnancy hormones are getting to me and I am pretty sure I am only a few short days away from you witnessing my head spinning around on my neck. But I only threatened to poke my own eyes out once! Aren’t you proud?

The biggest accomplishment for this week is that you are no longer on the Fragmin injections. Now I have no entertainment in the evening. I got a kick out of watching as you tentatively tried to inject the shot into your abdomen without hurting yourself.

Only two more weeks that we must endure the TED Stockings. Those things are so nasty and do absolutely nothing for those sexy legs of yours. Although they seem to go well with your housecoat and underwear, the stench of them is getting to me. The kind of stench that you just can’t wash out, no matter how hard you scrub and scrub and scrub.

Sugar, I know it seems like I have done a lot of complaining in my letters to you and I suppose I have. I do know one thing though, all is right and good in the Miller world when I snuggle up to you in the morning and we lay there talking about how I don’t want to get up and go to work… then Molson farts… that gets me outta bed pretty damn quick doesn’t it?

It won’t be long now and the crutches will be gone (along with all your excuses) and we’ll wonder how we ever managed without you on both feet. I can’t wait.

Love Nic,

p.s. As long as you are beside me, we can get through anything can’t we? No one said anything about there being no complaining along the way, that certainly wasn’t part of the deal

Hey Baby –

As we move into the 5th week, Mom and Dad Miller have joined us and I think it will help lighten your load (which you deserve). Plus it will be another week of recovery for me, which means more things that I can do on my own. So things continue to get better and Pea continues to grow.
