My favorite Elvis song, but not my favorite day. It matches my mood today though. Tomorrow my hubby goes to the local Catholic hospital for neck surgery. He has been suffering from neck pain for about 12 years. This was brought on by a combination of football in high school and looking down at mail. The last few weeks have consisted of a chiropractor recommending surgery(!!), xrays, and an MRI. There have also been interviews with people who have had the same surgery and hubby has spent hours reading message boards (not recommended) and printed many many detailed descriptions of this surgery. He is definitely an informed patient. Too informed, I say. He isn't sleeping well. He is nervously trying to get all the big chores done.
I am trying to get caught up on chores too, so I can be a full time nurse. So if you have missed me, that is why. You will miss me some more and I will miss you as well. Please pray for our family. Erik hasn't ever been down and I know this will be really hard for him.
