March 3, 2010 was when Dave had his initial surgery and March 10, 2010 was when he had to have emergency follow-up surgery. He then spent 30 days in the ICU and ultimately 75 days in the hospital. I know he was sedated for much of the time in the ICU and in pain for a good part of it but I find myself missing that time. We were hopeful that all would be well if we could just make it through.
I felt like I lived at that hospital and Dave couldn’t wait to come home. It’s not that I want Dave to relive all of that pain and misery but I do miss those days.
