The right kind of naive...

My ds Tim and sdil Nikki have had a tough 24 hours. Yesterday morning, Tim had some minor arthroscopic surgery (to repair a hernia), which went apparently very well. However, Tim is what the surgeon terms "extremely drug naive", which has lead to quite a bit of vomiting and dizziness. It appears that he may be over the hump this morning, and able to medicate for pain without any heaving.

Tim is 24 years old, and not only has he never taken any illicit drugs, but he has never had surgery or anesthesia of any kind (even still has his wisdom teeth), never had prescription pain medication of any time, and is really a healthy young man. While it's good to have that drug naivete, now they know to ask for anti-nausea meds after surgery, should he ever need surgery again.

Would you join me in praying for Tim to recover quickly, control pain, and be able to both rest and eat, and for poor Nikki to get a little sleep today? Thank you, Gentle readers!
