This is the first Serious injury and surgery for John in the WWE. I feel so awful seeing him go through this. I’m so proud of how strong he is being and how he always tries to be in high spirits even though I know he is hurting.
The first week after surgery is the most painful. He hates not helping out and carrying his own weight. He stubbornly tries to do little things and I understand that I can’t baby him but I worry. I want to do everything for him so he can just rest.
I have taken him on mini walks so he can get out of the house… he can’t stay out for very long because he starts to ache. I wish I could do more. During the day he has to sit, but he can’t sit for long because his neck starts to hurt… then he can’t stand for too long either because the same thing happens. His body gets tired because its hard for him to rest. At night he wakes up every few hours and gets out of bed because his neck is sore. For some reason he thinks I sleep through him bumping into stuff in the dark, on his way to the kitchen. He says coconut gelato is the only thing that makes his neck feel better at 5am. Bless his heart.
When he goes to sleep he tries to rest his head on a pillow but it’s pressing on the incision. He turns to sleep on his side but his neck tightens up so sleeping on his side doesn’t work. Neither does sleeping on is stomach… so sleeping is painful too… especially when he wakes up in the middle of the night…. But at least he IS sleeping. At least when he actually gets sleep he won’t feel as much pain… well that’s what I hope.
I hate to see him in pain. He won’t tell me a lot of the times but you can just see it. It breaks my heart because he’s my Honey, but he always tries to smile. I admire him for being so positive, being strong and making me laugh. I wouldn’t blame him if he just vegged and sulked a bit… but instead he keeps his chin up and Smiles… even if it hurts.
He will be fine, I know… but it’s just getting through the first week…. then it should start feeling better each day after. So things will get better. Hope this little entry helped in letting you know how John Morrison is doing. I am taking good care of him. Don’t you guys worry. Come back here to RM and I will keep you posted.
