The Aftermath

 Sorry it has been a while since an update, but I just didn't feel like writing lately.

 The surgery day was rough, as it was a long surgery, but we made it through. The hardest part for me was walking in once Robin was awake, dealing with a less than stellar nurse and having to deal with the sudden change.
  You have those days when you realize that everything is going to be different. This was one of those. Having children and horrific injuries will both change your life permanently, albeit in different ways.
 It was a few days of suffering at the hospital, but then Robin got to come home.

 The most difficult thing in this whole process is not actually being able to help with anything. As a husband, you get used to being able to influence things, and protect your family.

 With Cancer, it isn't an option. I have to watch my wife suffer, physically and mentally, and there isn't anything I can really do about it.

 But, to quote from 'The Life of Brian', we are trying to look on the bright side of life. It could have been one of the kids.

There's that at least.
