Surgery went well. Now healing begins!
Got home late Saturday afternoon, hospital took good care of me and Chuck. There was a couch he slept on in the room, they gave him pillows, blanket, sheets and meals in the room when they brought mine.
Thank you all for your prayers.
I decided this New Years Eve to go to my daughters to play games with her and her girls, had a lot of fun and ate way to much junk. As 11 approached I started to get the now familiar panicky feeling in my stomach so I went home, didn't want to see the new year in as it just brings pain that Its another year without my Greg, so I went home and got in the jacuzzi with the loud jets on so I couldn't hear the fireworks going on, like it was not going to happen if I didn't hear it. This May will be 3 years for me and at times it seems unbearable although the initial drowning feeling is no longer there all the time so that is good. I think trying to help my sister who lost her husband on Dec 1st is throwing all the feelings back in my face or so it seems. I packed up her husbands things for storage as she is moving down the street from me and then was up all night replaying Gregs death,, not sure how to distance myself from all those flashbacks and be there for her at the same time. She was the one sister that was nt there for me when Greg passed as I kicked her and her husband out of my house for fighting (arguing) when Greg was at home on hospice, he passed that very day, I just couldn't tolerate it, here I was losing my love and they were fighting over petty things that weren't important. But I want to be there for her as I know how important it is to have that support so please say a prayer for me that I find strength for this new journey. I hope everyone has happiness and love in this new year
Steve, I hope your surgery went well and you are now home tucked in your own bed, praying for a speedy recovery
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY ANGELS! MAY 2020 HEAL YOUR HEARTS AND BRING YOU PEACE.
Happy New Year everyone...and Chuck our hearts will be with you...
Wow, not a fun way to start the year, surgery on just the 2nd day of the year! I know the feeling to some extent as my wife will be facing intestinal surgery sometime in February, after having just had hernia surgery August 30.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery with as little pain as possible. Keep us informed how everything is going when you feel up to it.
The first time I came to Legacy..I thought the story of how you two met was SPECTACULAR!! Like a love story for the ages! I am serious. Something in the stars, that was MEANT to be! I believe You were meant to be together, and if this had been a different time, with no internet, you STILL somehow would have found each other. Your meeting is something that only a higher power could have created.. after all the pain each of your endured with loosing your partners, the odds must have been STAGGERING..and yet, you DID find each other...and I don,t think it was chance...there is so much we don,t, nor are we meant to...I also think, in the moments each person dies, we get the answers to all the questions we ever had..but are not allowed to remember them. I believe in past lives...and each of us spends eternity with people we loved in different times, or places. You and Chuck are truly blessed.
I haven't posted in awhile. Simply here with a broken heart and a wish for a peaceful Christmas and New Year to all.
