Another day.....another unexpected development...

(also see update below....)

Today was hospital check in day. ( See yesterday's post.) Our son and my sister-in-law took Mr. Downeastdoingstuff into the hospital to be prepped for the heart surgery scheduled for tomorrow. (I worked) They weren't there very long when the surgeon said that the results of Saturday's blood test showed some sort of abnormality and that they cannot proceed with the surgery right now until all that is figured out. More tests are on the horizon, but the mental and therefore, physical drain of this let down has been difficult. He worked so hard on being prepared for this day and to have a positive attitude that this burst bubble he experienced today has been tough.

So we don't know how this story is going to pan out. We're hanging in there and praying for everything to come back to normal so that this procedure can come to fruition.

Dangest thing.

Update: OK, I'm trying to be serious here as this a very serious subject. Mr. Downeastdoingstuff (also known as Birdman on his blog...) makes a very serious observation. If you scroll in the 'comments' section, you will find his astute observations well documented.

It's really hard when you're in the middle of this to have any perspective. All of your plans have to be re-made. It's exhausting, overwhelming. But, hang in there. Be kind to yourselves and each other. This, too, shall pass. We're sending big, cozy, consoling, comforting hugs.

These things are never easy. Just know that the doctors know what they are doing and things will continue later. I had a 10 day wait before my surgery. I'm keeping you both in my prayers.I can feel your love for your husband in this post.
Balisha ((HUGS)) for both of you.

This is hard - but if it could have been dangerous it is a good thing it was discovered - now to wait - that is the hardest part. Our arms are around you both!!!!

Oh Elenka, how difficult. Such a let down when you are all pumped up and ready. Well, everything happens for a reason, and things will progress as they should in their own time. My prayers are with you and your sweet husband. Hugs Kathleen

... just one question, is that my nurse that will be taking care of me during and after surgery??? If so, I might do the surgery myself this afternoon. hahahahaha
