The Night Before

Tomorrow is the big day – the day of my husband’s first surgery. This evening we’re rushing around doing last-minute things, making phone calls to various family members, and feeling fairly tired and nervous in anticipation of what I expect will be a rather rough week for both of us – but trying at the same time to remain positive, count our blessings, and focus on gratitude.

My mind really is elsewhere tonight – definitely not on trying to put my thoughts into coherent words – so I’m afraid this will be a short post. I’ll do my best to write a post-surgery update tomorrow – in the meantime, though, we are always grateful for prayers, good thoughts, etc. from family, friends, and well-wishers. 🙂

Hope you have a great week!

    Hey there, Dawn! Warming up to Facebook and HAVE to let you know I am thinking of you both. You’ll be through this soon and smiling. Just know it. Much Love, Fondly, Robin

    All the best to you hubby for an easy surgery and a quick recovery. Take care of yourself too, I know how much nerves and stress surgery brings the spouse!

      Thanks so much for your support, Winnie – I really appreciate it! His surgery was successful and he’s now in recovery – hopefully I’ll get in to see him soon.

    Great news. So glad to hear. Thanks for the update. Now, rest and recovery, right. I like that part, if you can be there to spend time with him and take care of him. Let me know if you need anything. I’m a phone call away!

  • You are so kind, Robin – thank you very much for everything. 🙂

    Hey, Dawn! How are things coming along? Thinking of you both. 🙂

  • Thanks, Robin! Things are a bit discouraging at the moment – he’s having a tough time getting up and walking, and I have a cold. Of course I’d rather have a cold than deal with what he’s going through! Hope today is a better day for him.
