First, I want to thank all of you who have either posted comments or e-mailed me directly. As always, my cyberspace family is there when I need them. I truly believe that prayers from across the world do help.
In any event, Peter made it through the night and right now (9:15 am on Saturday) they are leaning towards holding off on surgery. The doctors should decide in an hour or so for certain. I spoke with him on the phone a few minutes ago and he is pretty drugged up for the pain, but seems totally lucid. Not surprisingly, he did not get much sleep with them checking his vitals and taking blood every few hours too on top of that.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that this may in a strange way be a blessing in disguise in that it may well thaw what had been a bleak outlook for me emotionally for the Holidays. Pete did apologize for the nasty stuff that has gone on between us. I hope this will be the beginning of a a healing process that we all need badly. I know that I most surely need it.
I will post updates d regularly. I am going to do a little work on some wills and corporate documents and then go see him at the hospital.
