Dena, at least you know what you are dealing with. I hope you get cleared up really soon, and your hubby does well. I had the parathyroid surgery a couple of years ago, and it was a breeze. Never even had to take anything at all for pain. Back shopping the next day. They can do things now as outpatients that used to keep people in the hospital for days.
Sending prayers for both of you.
Life is short.
Lick the bowl.
