My Absence

this is shocking...especially for my family, but today was the first time in about four days that I have found any time to open my laptop.  

Honestly, I haven't had time.  We found out, toward the end of the week (last week) that Sam was going to have to have neck surgery.

He had a disc that was pinching his spinal cord and was causing him all kinds of problems.  He had the surgery on Wed. morning and he has felt miserable ever since.

The surgeon went through the front of his neck in order to replace the disc.  He has a lot of swelling and I feel sure that as soon as some of this goes away, he will begin to feel better.

How funny....the last four or five weeks, he has been taking care of me, helping me get over my shoulder surgery...
And now....I am taking care of him!

This is what love and marriage is all about.

Sure hoping that this is it for us....I'm talking about the surgeries here.

Hopefully, I'll find some time this next week to blog and to catch up on all my reading!

I'm exhausted right now, and I can hear our bed, calling my name!!

I pray that Sam heals fully and quickly; how did he get that problem? So get some rest now, so you have energy to take care of him and continue healing your shoulder too.

Gentle hugs,

Grandma Bonnie said...

My prayers are with you. I am sure he will get to feeling better once the swelling passes.

Thinking of you. Best wishes for a speedy recovery for Sam.

Oh, bless both of your hearts! Neck pain is some of the worse, so hopefully he will get better quick. We'll be here when you get back. Blessings!

Gosh, what a year y'all have had! I do hope and pray that Sam recovers quickly. Poor thing! But I know he is in good, loving hands with you by his side.
