I took Ron to the doctor yesterday and they removed the pain pump. He did great and hasn't had any pain. He's only taken 1 pain pill since he's been home from the hospital and that was to help him sleep the first night. It's amazing how well he has done through all of this.

I'm back to work. It will take me a day or two to get caught up and my head settled down. This has been quite an ordeal and I still feel like their is an anvil resting just above my head. Does that feeling ever go away or will it take 5 years before I feel like I can take a deep breath again? Time will tell I guess.

It's good to know that he hasn't suffered any more pain. That's amazing.

I would imagine that your fear will abate somewhat, but that 5-year mark will be huge!

Knowing he is not in pain must help enormously.
Yes, it will recede, the anxious moments slowly take a back seat.

Just wonderful that Ron is doing so well. Eventually this will only occupy a small corner of your mind. Just enjoy each day and don't waste one day anticipating what is not here. Easier said than done but it will happen.
