Tomorrow MOMD will have outpatient surgery. He has worked so hard through the years that this man of mine has basically worn out his rotator cuffs. That is, of course, not the correct medical terminology but that is how I see it. He has worked and worked to support his family and while he is careful and deliberate in the way he does things his body is paying the price.
I’m thankful to live in in a part of the world where access to medical professionals is convenient, facilities are well within driving distance and at least some of the cost is paid by health insurance. I’m glad that MOMD will have pain medication and antibiotics to speed up the healing process.
I’m grateful that MOMD’s surgeon spent countless hours learning how to do what he does. I’m thankful for the caring and compassionate office staff that we have seen a few times now. The nurses have been patient and have taken all the time we requested to answer questions about what we can expect as MOMD recovers from his surgery.
Our hearts are full because of friends and family that have called or emailed to say that MOMD is in their prayers.
I have every intention of getting back with you within the next few days to give a good report. A good report about my behavior and compassion, that is. Remember, I am the same person who scheduled wisdom teeth extractions for two hooligans on the same day so I wouldn’t have to overdo it on the niceness factor!
