Yesterday was HUGE!! Nick Fener is BACK! For the first time in 11 days, I don’t feel like I’m going to battle, I feel like I’m going to hang out with my honey. We made some changes to his medicines. Nick hates being “high” on drugs, and the drugs he has been on are so super sonic strong that he hasn’t been himself. He’s actually been enduring more pain just to keep from being so messed up mentally. But one cool surgeon (who wants to start AFF skydiving training) finally listened to me and changed his meds around. I’ve been fighting for this change in meds since Friday but no one would fucking listen to me. And guess what…He’s BACK!! Oh my God this is the biggest WIN so far.
Last night I finally showed him this blog. Actually, I only showed him all the amazingly loving and encouraging messages you guys have been sending. Talk about therapeutic!!! Thank you so much everyone! Keep the messages coming. We cried and laughed and cried some more. He will be ready for visitors soon, but not yet. Please dont just show up yet. Talking is super exhausting to him right now, so he still needs/wants to take things slow.
He has also returned to eating regular food. And for those of you who know Nick, this is a very important part of his recovery. Nick “are-you-gonna-finish-that?” Fener will eat you out of house and home! But since he went 9 days without eating, his stomach is much smaller and his appetite has decreased. Wonder how long it’ll be before he eats a massive Chipotle burrito and then half of mine? For those of you on the meal delivery program thingy, I’ll soon be posting items that Fener will want. Thank you all so much!
So, today is another day. A good day. We’re going to relax and watch funny movies together. His attitude is incredible! We will have ups and downs I’m sure, but right now we are UP and I’m celebrating. Now it’s finally come full circle how lucky we are that he survived.
