So...Monday is H and I's 2nd wedding anniversary.
I was hoping to have some good news to give him by way of a positive pregnancy test, but as that is unlikely given the outcome of all of my last 20 cycles, I think I'll have to come up with something else. (I'm waiting until Monday morning to test)
He is still recovering from his varicocelectomy and really sort of home bound. On that note, as far as we know, things went well. We won't know the true outcome for several months. He is more comfortable than he has been for many of his previous surgeries, but still in a bit of pain and can't find a good position to rest in.
The surgery required an incision about 3.5 inches on his left side, right where his leg meets his torso. Then the surgeon goes through his abdominal wall down into the scrotum and ties off/removes the enlarged veins. In H's case, they also checked for an inguinal hernia that we have suspected for awhile but found nothing. The procedure took about a half hour. H's dad did come down from Colorado to accompany him to the surgery and bring him home. He stayed for 2 days and was a huge help with H.
Back to our anniversary...
I know he has nothing planned for us (he's not really able to keep secrets) but I feel like we should celebrate in some small way. For our 1 year, I made us dinner at home (which I typically do anyway) and we enjoyed, sort of, the defrosted topper of our wedding cake. I need some help on this one, any ideas are greatly appreciated...I really have none of my own ideas for this. Please keep in mind the following:
1. He might be able to leave the house for a short period of time, unless something changes drastically between now and then, but nothing that involves extended standing (reclining is his favorite position right now)
2. All action "down there" is strictly forbidden, and entirely undesirable to H.
Really, any sweet simple ideas would be appreciated.
What did/do you do for your wedding anniversary early on in your marriage?
