He has the Jitters....

I have never seen my hubby have the jitters like he has had this evening.....   We have to be at the hospital by 6:00 A.M. and his surgery is scheduled for 8:00 A.M.

About 8 years ago, Sam had both of his knees replaced at the same time and I know for sure that this surgery was extremely painful......   He had months of therapy and it took about a year for him to fully recover.

I have always heard it said that the older you are, the harder it is when you have your tonsils removed!!??  I'm sure that having the uvula trimmed makes it even harder.   

What makes this surgery seem so bad (for me) is having to have the nasal passages reworked and then packed!  I am a nose breather and it makes me cringe to think that my nose would be packed and I would be unable to breath through the nose.   Bless his heart....he will do great....I KNOW!

I can't imagine this surgery being any worse than his knee surgery, however.....his ENT doctor, our family doctor, and his sleep apnea doctor have all told him that this is a very painful surgery....  

Needless to say.......I feel like my patient will be requiring a whole lot of my time this week.  If you don't hear from me for a few days, please know that I'll be back soon!!

I'll keep you all updated!!

With your loving support,I am sure he will do well. Having had several surgeries,I would rather have work done on other parts of the body and leave my throat and nose alone.

I will say a prayer for Sam and you, too, Shug. I'll be honest, I've heard that this is very painful so your sweetie will need lots of TLC. Hope all goes well tomorrow. Keep us posted when you have time!

My stomach is churning as I am reading this. I will pray for him, Shug. For it to go well and a good recovery, not too painful. My best friend had her uvula totally removed because she snored and her husband wanted her to!

I hope all went well!

Oh bless his heart! I will say a prayer for him and you too.

Praying for Sam today... Bless his heart. I'm sure things will go fine--but it would be scary for me too....

I sent you a message from my phone. Just wanted you to know I am praying for both of you.

Oh, my! Sounds complicated and painful. Bless Sam. God, watch over Mr. Shug and help him heal quickly and experience minimal pain. Please do keep us posted!

Hi Shug!

I'm a little late at commenting, but nevertheless, prayers to Sam and to you. He will be in good hands with you as his sweet wife.
