Hey Missy !!

Good doc you have helping you out with your husband !!
I hope everything goes well and that he helps you at home when your doc forbids you to do things(hehe) !!
It's not easy having more then the kids to care care of at home (I mean the husband !!). I often tell people that I have 3 kids to take care of at home( though I have 2 and my husband !!).
Let me know how you doing as soon you are able to reach the computer.
Cross both my finger and toes !!

Thanks Nettan, I understand completely the 3 kids thing. I only have 2 kids but the hubby is just as bad as the kids LOL. I have no idea what the dr is planning to tell the DH but I told her to make it as graphic and scary as possible (DR is a woman and understands completely ) (you guys do realize that I am looking forward to waking up just to get his reaction). I warned my mom what the dr was going to do and she will give me a detailed description of his reaction. I am also curious to see if he helps me after the dr talks to him. I do beleive that I am more nervous over this surgery than any of my ortho ones.

thanks for all of the support guys

Oh, Missy...

Now I really need to kill your husband.  How could he be so insensitive about this kind of very emotional surgery?!  Doesn't he have any idea the torrent of feelings you must be going through right now and how much you need him to reassure you?  If he were having his prostate removed due to cancer, would you abandon him now?

Well, honey, we're here for you and we're sending you long-distance pampering and hugs...which you're entitled to with ABSOLUTELY NO LIMITS!! ;D  If your children are old enough to understand about your surgery, then let them nurture you when you get home...they can certainly make you a cup of tea, light you some scented candles, put in a video for you and WATCH IT WITH YOU (snuggling with your kids is simply the BEST!), and bring you warm, comfy blankets and tuck them around you.  Get your comfort where you can...you deserve it and you should have it!  Try to relax and think good thoughts.  And we'll be thinking them with you, sweetie.

Best wishes for a pain-free surgery and a speedy recovery!

HUGS, HUGS, HUGS!
