Heath had surgery on his hand today. They removed a giant cell tumor (about the size of a marble) from the palm of his hand. Everything went exactly as planned in surgery and Heath is resting comfortably on his pain medication. There may even be some drool involved ;)

I must admit I had my moments last night. I began to feel anxious about his surgery and about all the things that "could" happen. I know it sounds horrible but my mind was wondering and even the thought of something bad happening made my palms sweaty and my eyes well up with tears. I even stooped as low as to say "Are you sure you don't want to just cancel this altogether? It's totally up to you, you know. You don't have to do it.? "

Today I will admit that I am disappointed in myself. I shouldn't have made those comments. I am sure it didn't ease his mind any.

On a more positive note though I must add that Heath was hilarious after he woke up from anesthesia. Cracking Jokes with the nurse and other things that I won't mention here but he was sooooo funny.

You had a right to be nervous about the surgery. I would have been too!
