Breezy Days: The Hernia Has Spoken

The Hernia Has Spoken

Earlier this week Ryan had surgery for his umbilical hernia. He has been living with the pain of having his guts try to escape out of his belly button for over two months! Every cough, laugh, sneeze, and sudden movement would put him in excruciating pain :/ Suffice it to say, we were excited to finally have a surgery date. 

Ryan is one tough guy, and I sometimes forget what it's like to see him vulnerable. He's such a manly mountain man, he can do anything and everything! Then to see him practically helpless this week has been heartbreaking. Just think about it, almost every movement you make is connected to your core! Soooo he pretty much didn't move all week. 

Lots of medicine, Netflix, shakes, and naps were on our schedule. Luckily I have a job that is extremely understanding, so I was able to stay at home for a couple days to take care of him until he could move around the house more easily. He's now doing better, and we are excited to go back to living our lives hernia-free! :)

I hope he feels better soon! My husband had that surgery last year :( It took forever to schedule the surgery. But once he healed he was a new man!
