longtimemrs : I’m so so sorry to hear the news of your husband and that he’s had a difficult recovery. But that’s wonderful news that things seem to be improving! You are one of the sweetest people around here and it’s hard knowing you and your family are going through these tough times. You have an absolutely amazing attitude and you’re exactly right — there will be good days and bad days, just take each day at a time and keep praying (as we all will too!) that as time goes by, the bad ones will be few and far between.
Thinking of you, sweet bee! And sending you and your family love and all the strength I can muster. ❤️

longtimemrs : as a pharmacist, I was just going to comment, if he’s got a lot of nausea and vomiting, it’s likely from his pain medications – if he’s on morphine, codeine, OxyContin, fentanyl, hydromorphone, hydrocodone, vicodin, Percocet, etc… all will cause nausea and vomiting at higher doses. Hopefully lowering dose, or changing medication will help him feel better.

mishybear : Hi Mishy! I was just admiring the rings on this thread and have to say that yours is a lovely set. Even though I favor white metals, I love the entire set for its design, as well as the stack and the wide band . . . See? I love it all! It’s so elegant stacked together; so well balanced.

Thank you all SO MUCH for your kind words, your prayers, your thoughts, and for your beautiful ring pictures, too! Even though I have been so slow to come back into this thread to update or post, I have read through here many times. And your beautiful words and thoughts have been so uplifting to me.
Things are going pretty well for my husband’s recovery. Changing out some of his medications got rid of the nausea, so that was a HUGE step forward. And a huge relief, too. There is nothing worse than seeing someone you love suffering and feeling that you can’t do anything to make it better for them. I hate that feeling so much.
He is struggling a lot with being cold, in general. And our weather has been taking a cooler turn lately. So he’s probably not getting out to walk as much as he could, just because the cold really takes a toll on him. He is doing well on stairs, though. And I am able to get him out to walk at least once a day … and twice on most days. We are still having our ups and downs. There are days when he does really great, but other days when he is super tired. I think that’s probably normal, based on what the doctors have all told us. His blood pressure, heart rate, and all that stuff have been doing great, though! We had his first follow-up with the cardiologist, and that went well. They did an EKG, which looked good. We will follow up in another week with an echocardiogram and then a stress test so that he can get into cardiac rehab. I think doing rehab will help him gain a lot of confidence with regard to exercise and figuring out just how much he can do. It amazes me that so much of recovery is a mental game as well as physical. But I think we are on our way!

longtimemrs : Glad to hear that things are improving for him! You are so strong to stand by his side and go through all of this right along with him! I am rooting for you both. I know how tough it can be to watch someone you love deal with so much pain. He is super lucky to have you! Maybe an electric blanket could be a comfort to him now?

This is the set I have (my camera on my phone is broken):

I am a “plain” type of gal too, even too much for diamonds (too sparkly and harsh to my eyes, I like everything soft and muted). I think rose gold is so beautiful on its own, it doesn’t need blinging up. Been married almost 2 months and I can’t stop looking at my set. The band looks amazing on its own too.
