Why Men Can’t Give Birth

anteriorMy twenty two year old son had anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction yesterday. He is not a good patient. He moaned (roared) terribly loudly this morning and complained (that is putting it mildly) all day long about the excruciating pain. It was a case of “Oh my god, I am in agony, what are you going to do about it Mum? You have to fix it!”

I was running around like a headless chicken trying to drum up some stronger painkillers from the hospital and the GP.

Anyway, I got some and they seem to have kicked in.

Needs must! 😉

    Hope my friend C.is up and about soon and feeling better. I wish I’d known about the surgery-i could have sent my dad’s urinal from after hip replacement surgery in January! His has a lid-no spills. 😉

    Nice save. 🙂

  6. Had that surgery. While it may seem like a long time to him, it is absolutely true that by this time next year he’ll be same old same old. Helps to follow PT recommendations. The follow up doc visits are a bit of a ‘yowch’ when they try to bend the knee past where it might want to go. Take a couple of Tylenol or Ibuprofen before he goes to those. Best of luck to you. (Don’t give him a bell to ring for when he needs you. You’ll only end up wanting to perhaps wing it at him at some point.) Happy Nurse Mommy-ing! I don’t envy your surgery day. Never easy to get a non-movable straight leg and a person that’s in pain and woozy into a vehicle and then into a house. Parts of your urinal look like they might have the potential of doing damage to a tender body part – – just saying. You are clever, though.

      Ha, no bell but the bloody mobile phone does the trick.

      I probably should even out the jagged edge…evil grin.
      He is much, much better today and laughed heartily at your comment.

    Having him on the sofa snuggling with Ali – it’s all good.

    Three days after a major reconstruction of the anterior compartment of his knee, involving bits and pieces of bovine bodies, my son took off with crutches and a pup tent and drove from Texas to California. Keep Irishboy on that sofa!!

    And you get better fast now, son and lots of love.

    He kid! Your moms a bitch for posting private pics of you and then telling the world how you act after a surgery that she has never had. Kinda wish someone could have taken a photo of her giving birth to you, I bet she wasn’t all cool calm and collected

    I can zoom in on your house if you wish?

    The real 40Watt lives far, far away in an undisclosed location in PA. She would never say “He kid” or forget an apostrophe. She is a refined, gentle woman whom I love dearly. I have to say that! 🙂

    Folsom? Maybe the fake 40watt, with the wee double u, was feeling a little blue. (I love you too, IG)
