Keeping Promises

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.

Glad that everything went well and David has taken that first step to getting on the mend. Feel better soon, we're all thinking of you, David!

Isn't it amazing to see how our children react when Mommy or Daddy is hurt? Brings tears to my eyes every time...
