Good Luck/Bon chance/Speedy recovery and all the good thoughts and well-intentional prayers attached but at the moment (and during your procedure)--Tommy--you are alone with your feelings and I am saying, "stand strong, hold fast, keep the Faith" for I was and still am where you are now.
I am a victim of a massive stroke eight years ago, comatose 6 months, two years rehab (second childhood to adulthood), three years ago six stents, because I didn't follow-up two more stents a year ago... but you know what? I've not had the complications you have now on top of what I read between the lines of your hidden fears.
It may seem like the Powers above did me a favor in giving me a double-whammy in not preparing me for disaster but I can truly say now, "HE is with YOU whether you believe or not, prepared or not, ready or not... I like to think S/HE is Always there for you."
There are those who may not know the darkness you are going through now--alone--or may not know what I have endured the past eight years--alone--but Doreen is that ray of light that is shining when most days are darkest. Thank you Doreen!
"My friend, we are here for you."
