Here's what is going on with my husband...Thankfully Bobby's gallbladder did not burst; however, he does have to have it taken out and the surgery will be @ 10:00 a.m. this morning (Saturday). Not sure how long they'll keep him in the hospital; we've heard everything from 24 hours to 2, even 3 days. I'm praying for a smooth surgery and speedy recovery. My own surgery (bi-lateral mastectomy & breast reconstruction) will take place this coming Tuesday morning and more than anything, I'd love for my husband to be able to be there. It's so important to me. I love Bobby so much; he's been my rock and we've faced so many situations together throughout our almost 18 years of marriage (we'll celebrate 18 years on Monday!) - I just can't imagine facing this without Bobby....
I'll definitely let everyone know how Bobby's surgery goes. Please pray for us; believe me, I need all the prayers and support I can get right now.
Update: You know, there is ALWAYS a bright spot in ANY situation...sometimes you have to look real hard to find it, but most often it is there. Believe it or not, there is one in this current situation Bobby & I are facing.
When we first moved back to MI after living out of state for several years, we lived next door to a very nice doctor and his family. They were great neighbors and we enjoyed our time living there. We moved in a couple of days before our son's birthday/Bobby's birthday/our anniversary that year and the wife actually brought dinner over to us with cards and everything - it was so, so nice of them!
Well, GUESS WHO is the doctor that will be doing Bobby's surgery??? Yep, that's right - our former neighbor! This man enjoys a very good reputation in the medical field and we know him personally to be a great person. That itself has taken some of the nervousness out of this whole situation. Bobby commented to me last night that he was comfortable knowing this particular doctor was the one whose going to be doing the surgery.
There are little blessings all around - sometimes we need to adjust our perspective, don't you think?
