Surgery, Infections and throat closing?

D day today. My husband goes in for his biopsies, scopes and maybe another drain. We took the dressing off yesterday, he was complaining of immense pain. Not a pretty sight, and it's safe to say there is a pretty nasty infection around his original drain incision.

In other news, did you know that stress can manifest itself by making you feel like you're being strangled? I didn't, now I do, and I refuse to take the sleeping tablets our GP prescribed because I have a house, and a business to run, and a baby to wake up for, and a life to live.

Thank you all for your wonderful messages.

Today's step, making it past surgery.

Hey Nix

Praying so hard for you and your family, you are constantly in our thoughts. Thanks for keeping us updated when it's so hectic there.

You know when you just had Jordan and everyone tells you to relax and sleep when baby sleeps? The same applies now, try to rest as much as possible so you can keep your strength up, many of the stuff that seems urgent can actually wait.

Lots and lots of hugs for you!

I am a fairly new 'blogger' and recently came across your blog. I truly hope that you and your family are doing well, and hope you don't mind that I have added a comment. My family has been through a lot too, and I just want you to know that even from half way around the world someone is wishing you the best.

My friend (also another blogger) recently added a song to her blog. It's called 'Your Hands' by JJ Heller, and I think you may like it. It meant a lot to me, perhaps you will like it too.
