Well the surgery is done, I got the chance to see him for a minute. He is out like a light and didn't even know I was there, but I got to at least give him a kiss and whisper in his ear. He is on the respirator, hopefully will come off it tomorrow and if things continue to go well out of ICU by Sunday. The hospital gave me a beeper so they can reach me at any time. We live only 5 minutes from the hospital so I will be in and out all weekend and maybe get the chance to get some sleep.
A great big thank you to everyone for all the wonderfully supportive comments, it really did help me get through the wee hours last night while I was waiting to go back to the hospital.
