Wow! As if you don't have enough going on.

I've had mine out. It wasn't a biggie for me. I hope his won't be either.

Crap. Poor Tim. (Is this a really bad case of one-upmanship?!)

Apparently this op makes a big difference for sufferers... here's hoping he makes a dramatic recovery and is hearty to hold your hand shortly!!

Hugs your way...

Oh goodness - isn't that a bit overdramatic?

Sorry - couldn't help that. I hope he gets through it all okay and you are both going to get touched by the good health wand for the rest of the decade - you have had enough IMHO.

Debby said...

It is ironic, and when he started getting wound up about surgery in the car, I did remind him about overdramatics.

Bless his heart.

So. Your husband, who you've pretty much maligned in this blog...turns out that he's been dealing with a wife who's come down with cancer. Add to that, he is working for a company upon whose health benefits he absolutely depends and yet whose immediate future looks "iffy." And now he's going to have his gall bladder out, which probably didn't come on suddenly - he's probably been knowing that there was a problem for some time.

From what you've written, he sounds like a pretty good guy in my book.

But I think we now have quite a bit more insight as to your relationship.

No one should have to go through all this. I wish you both the best, and will keep you both in my prayers.

I just don't know what to say. *Sigh. Wonder. Wonder.* Okay. I'll put both your names back on the prayer roll. AND keep you BOTH in my prayers for more than one (jillion) reasons.

My own companion of nearly 40 years had his gall bladder out 25 years ago when they did it the old fashioned way--not laproscopically (sp?). He was angry about it for a long time. It was all my fault, you see. More about that some other time, maybe!

Please pass on my best wishes to Tim and I'll keep you both in my thoughts.

Like Jeanie, I was thinking that was a bit overdramatic!

It seems your doctor is somewhat good at telling the future. Lucky for Tim the doctor had the wrong stones that were to be removed. :)

Debby said...

Actually, Bob B., I'm surprised that you read it as 'maligning Tim'. I'm also sorry about that. I've tried to make it perfectly clear that Tim is very emotionally detached. He was brought up that way. His siblings are all that way. I've also tried to make it perfectly clear that he's the hardest working person that I know and good to the very core. I could not have married him otherwise. I just need more from him right now, and it's his turn to provide, just as I've provided what he needs. We have a very good marriage, but this is a very rough period.

Tim was being urged to see a doctor for weeks, but he ignores things (I suppose we have this in common.) His surgery is Monday because our fear was that if his company goes belly up, and he does not have insurance, the gall bladder could flare up or become infected, it could be costly. They squeezed him in on Monday as a favor, not because he's a severe case or suffering terribly.

Sorry if anyone else has read my comments about Tim as criticisms.

Sheesh, it seems that fate has played a mean trick on you: dread, relief, uncertainty, and now a husband with a health problem of his own.

My prayers are still with the two of you. After you get through this episode, you deserve a long period of clear sailing.

Mikey said...

Oh that's something else! I can't believe he gets to have some surgery too. You will both get to recover together :)
I think it's good actually, although the prospect of losing insurance has got to be alarming to say the least. Have to pray for both of you now!

Blimey, when it rains....
Thinking of you

Gaah! All my best for your both, and hopes that maybe you're getting everything out of the way now so you can have a quiet life together moving forward.
