Truly, your husbands report is not too far off of mine and all the feelings you are going through are completely normal. You have to find strenght where you can whether through faith, family, friends or all of the above. The DiVinci surgery "usually" takes around 4 hours and he will probaly out of the hospitial the next day. Your husband will need you 100% but you'll find it's not so bad. Once he is on the other side of this surgery the best support is listening and patience because the post op can be all about the mental side of recovering. You'll do fine.
