    Default hard day

    so im having carpal tunnel surgery on Monday, seems like a big deal to me im in a lot of pain. its a non issue now that today I found out my husband has to have open heart surgery as soon as possible. He has a large hole in his heart. He hasn't been feeling well like dizzy and tired, so he has been getting a lot of tests. We knew there was some heart problem because we were referred to a cardiologist, but the dr didn't hesitate at all to say this is what needs to be done. Scary.
    RIP Fonzi- Mommy and Daddy miss you!

    Hi Colleen, I'm so sorry you are both dealing with pain and not feeling well. I agree with everyone that it's a good thing that your husbands Cardiologist was able to diagnose what was causing him to not feel well, and that he is now going to get the surgery he needs to repair his heart. You are both in excellent hands, and the surgeries will heal you both. Anytime we gave surgery or illness, we feel scared, and that is natural, but Drs can perform miracles today, and we are so fortunate to live where we have access to hospitals and great surgeons. My mom just had a scare with cancer, and she had a total hysterectomy last week, it turned out to be no cancer or disease, but a benign growth, so I understand facing surgery and being scared. I wish you both the best, and a a successful surgery with a quick and easy recovery. You are in our thoughts. Sending you both love, hugs and prayers. Please keep us posted on how you are doing.

    Oh gosh Colleen!! So thankful though that your hubby went to the doc. When is his surgery going to be? That's so scary. So so glad though that they'll be able to repair the hole. Carpal tunnel hurts too. I have a mile case of it in my right wrist but it only affects when every now and then. It's very painful. Will you be putting off your surgery for a bit? Will be thinking your hubby and you. Prayers to both!!!

    Thank u to everyone for your support. This is not something we want to put all over facebook or anything so it's nice to have a place to vent. The dr wants to do the surgery as soon as possible. He said my hubby could have a stroke at any moment if a blood clot were to form and go to his brain. Everything I see online says his situation is pretty much the worst type of hole in the heart you can have. It's too large for a more simple procedure. The direction of his blood flow is dangerous too. The good news is once this is done it will be FIXED. He will not have to take medicine his whole life or have any physical restrictions once everything heals. the doc said he can lift weights, swim, run, whatever. he also said he will feel better than ever now that his blood will have the proper oxygen levels. my mother work on the cardiology floor as a nurse for a lot of years and she said it's amazing he made it through the marines and everything without this condition ever being discovered. the doc said this usually comes up earlier in life. its a procedure that is more commonly performed on children. as far as my surgery goes, i am still having it on Monday. It's a simple procedure now, 1/4 inch incision. I am off work right now because the pain is so bad that it keeps me up a lot at night, and i cant function through the day. I'm scheduled to go back to work on the 13th. it might be a blessing in disguise if they are able to get him in next tues/wed like we talked about yesterday. I'll be off work so i can be there the whole time.
    RIP Fonzi- Mommy and Daddy miss you!
