I don't know anything yet on how dh is doing this morning. It's not even 7am. I figured no calls last night was good news. He did text me right about my bedtime that they put him on oxygen. I asked why and he said he didn't know and I said it must be because of the pain meds. A couple hours later he texted me that yes, that is why. The pain meds must have been working some, haha, as some of his Facebook comments weren't quite spelled right or making complete sense. He was getting quite a few direct messages from friends, so I think that probably helped keep him busy and his mind a bit occupied.
Hopefully no complications come up and he starts healing and feeling better in the next couple of days. Apparently the most common cause of pancreatitis is due to drinking alcohol and dh said the dr kept asking him how much he drinks. None! I guess he finally believed him, because when he called me he didn't ask if he drinks. When I asked what causes this he said, well, most often from drinking, but since he doesn't drink, it's not that. Then I said, no, he doesn't drink.
In great news - DD called day before yesterday as her promotion at work came through. She's doing same job, just bumped up to the next "level". She had no idea what the salary increase will be. She was thinking she'd just be happy if she got another $5k a year. Then one of the senior managers was congratulating her and said "you must be happy with the significant pay increase". DD said she said well, I haven't been told how much it is! LOL. She was telling me this when I called her about dh and said what do you think "significant" means? I said my guess was $10k more. Not too long later either her direct manager or that manager (I think that lady was her boss's boss) told her how much her raise is...................dd called me and said she was still shaking.........she got a raise of $25,000 per year!!! From $67k a year to $92k. DD said she doesn't even know how to process that in her mind, haha. She has worked there less than 3 years and now makes more than her dh, haha. She's almost doubled her salary from the company she first worked for out of college. My guess is they will probably start looking for a new house, haha. I know at some point they'd like something with a little more property, at least on an acre, rather than in a housing development.
As I'm typing this dh just texted. He said it was a pretty bad night. The pain meds are only lasting about 2 hours and they can only give him every 4 hours. But, he said the nurses and doctor are very kind. He said they are doing blood draw again to check all his levels. I guess the enzyme level in his pancreas was off the charts yesterday. It's supposed to be like 30 and he said the nurse told him his was 500. He said they just gave him some more pain meds so he was going to sleep some more, so I probably won't hear from him for a bit now.
And as if yesterday wasn't stressful enough, it was payroll processing day. Thankfully, I had gotten most of the issues resolved on Monday. I think in the back of my mind I had a feeling dh was going to get sicker. I was able to get it done fairly quickly first thing yesterday morning, while he decided what/where he wanted to go get checked out. Then I was ready to submit, but the stupid system was blocking me with an error message about a new employee, so while I was at the hospital waiting, my boss got that part taken care of, then when I got home that afternoon, I got it submitted. My side job payroll is due today, but I went ahead and got my side job's payroll (which is very quick and easy to do) submitted yesterday, too, since who knows what today will bring.
