Thanks for all the prayers, suggestions and good vibes everyone! The surgery went really well, and DH and I are home now. Currently he's napping on the recliner. Basically I brought him home, he immediately got comfy on the recliner, I ordered and got pizza, we ate, and now he's sleeping. He seems okay so far, but we'll see how he feels once the drugs wear off. They gave him some good meds to take home for the pain though, should he need them.
Now I need a nap too... we've been up since 5 am!
Believe me, I am taking all of your advice and shared stories to heart, and it's comforting to hear all the success stories. Thank you!
It's funny, DH was all about coming home and playing computer games, but he's zonked out now, LOL!
