In our 20's & 30's David always promised me that our 400's were going to be all about fixing him up. I always joked & told him he was nuts that I loved him just the way he was. Of course that was true & remains so to this day. However, he has been busy keeping his promise to me.
Today David had the 1st of 2 or 3 more surgeries. This begins our journey to fixing his hands. As a computer geek, he's got that dreaded problem - carpal tunnel syndrome. The doctor he's using is someone I've known for about 3 or 4 years now. I trust this doctor implicitly with the only man I've ever loved.
Each time David has surgery, I spend the night before awake. I get about 2 or 3 hours of sleep then I wake up & just spend the night staring at him & praying that things will be alright. We had explained to Erin that David was having surgery to fix his hand & that she needed to come to the hospital with us very early. I would then take her to school at the correct time. Erin was amazing with David. She has such an empathetic soul. Before I took her off to school, she gave David hugs & kisses & then kissed his hand to "help his booboo heal faster."
The surgery went well. The doctor said that David should be just fine in a few weeks but will be uncomfortable for a few days. He wasn't joking. David is definitely uncomfortable but managing to be quite the trooper.
Thanks for keeping your promises honey. However, next time just promise me a night out on the town. Those are much easier.
