I hope everything works out for you.  It has to be very hard for him to have you do everything for him.  Put him on the forums to talk to us.  Maybe audio books would help pass the time.  Best wishes.

Hi all!

   He's doing better everyday but his pain distracts me very much. I find myself almost hovering over him. Thank you for the warm welcome!


How do I stop hovering? I really would love some help here.
