Surgery is in the Future

DH had an MRI done a week or so ago. The doctor read the results and my honey gets to have surgery to repair his shoulder. He has an appointment this next Friday with the shoulder doctor. From the reading we have done, I anticipate it will not be done arthroscopically-his tear and bone fracture is extra large and they will probably have to open him up the old fashioned way. I will write more when we know more.

sigh

I just keep telling myself a year. The recovery is going to be a year.

There are so many things that are just not happening around here because DH is unable to help out. The garden is essentially all weeds. The lawn is long. The weed whacking is long overdue. We are a team, my hubby and I. He is a man that does dishes, vacuums, puts kids to bed and does diapers. He is a gem! Keeping the house running (not smoothly) without him has been difficult. A bunch of tasks have just fallen off the bottom of the list.

I could try to push through but then the kids would suffer even more. It is better to read a story and bake together and have long grass, right?

Oh wow. I hope things go well with the surgery.

It is better to read a story, but I know that looking out the window at everything that needs to be done is hard, too.

I'll bet that there are plenty of teenage boys at your church that would love to come and help out for an hour or two each week. Combine a few of them with your boys and you could really get things done! I wish we lived closer so my boys could help. :(
