In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

I am so sorry that I did not see your posts yesterday so that I could wish you well before you went in for your surgery, my CP runs about an 8 - 9 every day, but the last three days it has been a 9.5, it is all I can do to keep from going to the ER. I never even turned my computer on yesterday.
You will be in my thoughts and I pray that your chronic pain will be gone or at the very least significantly reduced.
I know that the surgical pain can be absolutely brutal, but remember it is temporary.
Please allow yourself the time you need to heal without feeling guilty - you have to put yourself first during your recovery to get the best results from the surgery and so that you can be that rock that everyone depends on once you are well.
By now you have joined some of your BIONIC FRIENDS....I know you are feeling at least some relief from the Fusion.....thinking of you and sending GENTLE LVING HUGS ((((((((((((((((((PETE)))))))))))))))))))!! Hang in there buddy, hopefully, we will hear something from your wife soon!!
