Modenese Pork Chops


I really had a decent day. I’m tired though. I drove a lot the past few days. We went to hubby’s appointment. Turns out in the next few months we’ll be doing a revision surgery. There are risks, but any surgery poses risks. The good news is he’ll be able to stretch his thumb and index finger further. It should allow him to stretch far enough to grab larger things again. I didn’t tell him, but my biggest fear is that we’ve rolled the dice of good luck way too many times. We could roll some bad luck. Is this crazy to think?

Honestly… if it goes wrong, we could end up doing what he didn’t even want done. I’m terrified. He seemed to think that it’d be a low risk….but again we’re rolling those dice. My heart feels SO heavy. Guys, I don’t know if I can go through all of that again. It was hard enough to watch, but if we end up back where we were….I’ll feel like not only a total failure, but all our progress would be for nothing. It’d all be lost. I’ve decided not to give him any input…because I don’t want him to blame me if he needs it. I know he wants to do it though. I can tell. It’s easy enough though. Dr said that it’s an hour surgery and he gets to go home the same day. Crazy enough he wouldn’t need to go completely under either. So much to think about.
