I sympathize with the way you're feeling. I know I'll feel the same way when we have to go. In fact the other night we went to the movies and out to dinner. While waiting for the dinner to be served he started talking about it and I told him that I wouldn't be able to eat dinner if we didn't change the subject and he understood.
It's to bad you're not going to be able to be close to hime to have the procedure done and have family and friends around you. I know our daughter will be with me and maybe our son will come down too...We haven't told the kids yet. Curtis keeps putting it off. We were going to tell our daughter last weekend when she came over, but her daughter was with her and we didn't want to get her all upset...Next weekend Ashtyn will be with her father so then we'll tell her.
That's a great idea about Ensure...gee I learn a lot in here. I'm going to buy him some of that...also I like the idea of the soup..taking out the good stuff and letting him have the broth...I'll take the good stuff. Wouldn't want it to go to waste!!
Anyway good luck and I'll be thinking of you and I'm sure everyone else in here will be to...Let us know how everything turns out. Hugs
