John - you don't know me as I'm a recent member. I was happy to see that Miss Bluebird brought your story back to the top or I never would have seen it.
You'll see by the stats posted that my husband's surgery did not turn out as expected either so, of course, I've read all of this post to follow your journey. Before I came here there seemed to be no one who really understood the gravity of what we're going through and immediately I had responses from the fine group of people here. I'm hoping you will post again John, we need to know about others in the same situation. Please answer if you can...it does help both you & us.
With respect and hope,
