The other side of the waiting room

As I sit lay here in the waiting room watching the surgery progression scroll by on the screen... I can't even think clearly. I thought hey, this is a good time to post on the blog... now I think hey what the heck can I write about as they are most likely making their first incisions on my husband. I don't know how he was so strong in waiting "here" for me 8 weeks ago almost to the day. How calm and level headed he was, when I couldn't even hold it together as they wheeled me down for surgery. He was in good spirits right before, and completely passed out on the way down, just mumbling a "thanks you guys" as they wheeled him away. My stomach is making so much noise I have already checked a couple of times to see if its actually my cell phone, that is laying on me, vibrating.

In all honestly I hate the idea of surgery because you just never know, but I am very glad that Nate is getting it, and hope that it helps him a great deal with the pain and suffering he has been dealt with this disease. I hope that it goes as expected and he can recovery quickly.

So as I sit her with my family and my husband's wedding ring attached to my pink bracelet I will try to be strong, if only as half as strong as he has been for me.

Love you both so very much. I can't think of two people more perfect for eachother right now. I'm glad you have one another to lean on and love. Hang tough, stronger than you think or feel.

Very good, for not thinking clearly, Dear. One can only imagine how either of you felt, and feel. But to hear how you are feeling now, thank you for sharing. Much of my heart's strength is with you, I know. I can feel it. This is good, but I need to remember it, for my family's sake. Thank you for the songs posted here, and the tears they released from many and me, for you.
