Thank you all so much for the encouragement and support. It meant more than I can ever adequately express. And, yes, as many of you suggested, I did picture you all around me when I was waiting. That along with my constant prayers to the angels helped me keep the tears to a minimum.
I often think that because we've been in this situation a fair amount of times now, that I will handle it better. That's just not the case. I do believe I handle it worse each time it happens.
Musicman had the procedure and it went well. Unfortunately, it did not fix the problem and we are now looking at a more complicated surgery in the near future. I can't even think about that right now, I'm just too exhausted. I am going to go find something to eat, cause I've been existing on mostly coffee for the last few days(not a great idea) and then try and relax enough to get some sleep.
