Do We Ever Appreciate Them Enough?

This is one of "those" posts... you know... the ones that either come across as "mushy" or "heartfelt"....

Either way, it's one I want to post...

I went for a mammogram a while back.. no prob... the yearly thing... But they called me back for some more pics... then immediately did a sonogram (think stress here)...then the Dr. wanted to come see for himself (only a little increase in stress here) ... then as he rolled his hands in front of him and looked at me wide eyed (increase that stress level by a bit here), he "suggested" very strongly that I have either a biopsy or MRI as soon as possible (increase it a LOT here)... As the sonogram tech walked me back to the waiting room (so I wouldn't get lost), he kept asking me if I was ok...what's up with that??? So I had the MRI on Friday... now it's just a waiting game. (Can we say LOTS of stress here? )

During this "waiting" time my DH has been the most patient, supportive person I have ever known... I don't think I ever tell him enough how much I appreciate him.

He came down "feeling bad" a week or 10 days ago... weak kneed... but it wasn't until Saturday evening that we took his temp and found it to be over 100. Still, he had spent an hour or so in the shop with me...and has spent the whole week making sure that I had enough hobby things to do that it would keep my mind busy and off the "waiting"... Finally it has gotten him down enough that he went to bed at 8pm and spends most of the day leaned back in his recliner. He has begun the "sweating it out" process, so here's hoping it will soon be over...

So, it is with absolute resolution that even tho he lives for NHRA racing (not NRA) in the spring and summer ... John Force...yayyy... This cartoon says it all... and with appreciation....and no complaints from this wife...

I love you, Hon... Thanks for being my DH...

Heres my comment. "Not enough" for sure. I though I had the best husband in the world. Sounds like there is more than one. lol

Linda, you are an excellent writer, poignant and funny at the same time. Where have you been all my life? lol

I dislike very much people who make you worry. You were not treated right at the center where your tests were done. And especially it being a Fri. and the "waiting game" nonsense. Its all easier for the techs and Dr.s, they are'nt the ones with the problem. God Bless and here's hoping the waiting will soon be over and a solution is here.....
God Bless.
