Why the Lie?
Last summer, my husband was operated on for Superior Mesentary Artery Syndrome. He crashed two days later, and ended up intubated in ICU. A lot of this was due to his emphysema. He almost died. The nurses told me that when they did the bronchoscopy, it was touch and go, and that they almost lost him. Well, guess what? He is smoking again. He flat out denies it to me, but I know where his cigarettes are, and I monitor them. He goes out somewhere to smoke. He changes clothes somewhere. I see clothes in the laundry basket that he doesn’t wear at home, and those clothes, and his underwear smell strongly of smoke.
I don’t why you would do this when you ALMOST DIED! I’m not stupid. Don’t lie to me!
I have put this marriage in God’s hands. It is all I can do. I have to just wait. But I don’t want him hurt. We are going back up to Tampa tomorrow, and he may need more surgery for an ileus that has developed at the surgery site. I pray that he doesn’t need more surgery. I don’t think he gets how serious this is. Pray for us, please.
