Hello all, sorry I haven't been on these last few days but like the subject says I think it pretty much says it all right there. My husband had surgery on Monday. We went to the hospital at 10am after dropping our daughter off to her great grandparents that came into town to help us out for a few days. Well I didn't got a lone to the hospital. Surprisingly enough after after my husband was prepped for surgery and into to surgery it only took 30 minutes. He was don't with his surgery before 12pm which is when it was suppose to start at. His doctor came into the waiting room brought us to a private room because at the hospital we went to they have private rooms where all the doctors talk to the family so nothing is out in public to other people you don't know. The doctor told both me and my husband grandfather that not only did they take out his gallbladder but they took his appendix as well. So I hope now that all the pain these last 2 months is going away now. Right now he is hurting pretty bad and he has a few holes in him right now. It does suck that he can't hold our daughter right now and play with her but when she gets back from visiting family next week then he can hold her. Now his recovery is a little bit longer but I think in the end after all the pain he'll be much more happier to have a short term pain to live a little bit longer with no pain every day and having to miss work since he doesn't get enough sleep to focus.

Babies have no perception of things so really she wouldn't question any thing since she wouldn't remember ever. I don't know why you keep saying she is going to be hurt or wonder why he isn't doing stuff he normally does. Babies are smart they see things they don't understand but they know when things are up. Nothing has changed outside of her every day stuff besides being with her great grandparents for 3 days. To her everything is normal just that daddy his home for a week. They have like a 3 second attention span so she is off to do something else.

First of all, congrats that all went good and the operation was a success. I need to ask you for what had he undergone the surgery? We always need our family help in all our good and bad times, good they helped you. I also want to tell you that a temporary pain is needed for lifetime happiness, tell your husband to bear the pain for sometime. This is the time he needs your care always, so be with him and take care of him. You can reply to all our discussions later while you are free.

They don't know its one of those things that is unexplainable to why the gallbladder was causing my husband pain. All of his test for it came back negative but since he was in pain they went and took it out and checked his appendix as well. Which was slightly inflamed at the bottom and extended at the top. So before the appendix got worse they took it out. Well he has been in pain for 2 months and not its much worse just after having surgery they had to put holes in him which we all know will heal on its own but will be painful for a few weeks till the holes heal all the way.
