I have a dilema I would like to talk about... it's bothering me, and I wondered what others thought, and what you would do in my situation.

here's the scenerio:

Hubby has needed a hernia operation for about a year now.. he doesn't work from April 1st to July 1st every year,, so early in '09 I scheduled a doctors appointment so we could get this under way, and under the knife soon after his lay off (April 1st) he jumped through all the hoops, and doc says that late April the hospital would call to finalize dates. so we wait........................................

end of April comes and goes.. still no call...

today is May 5th, and I asked him if they had called, he replied "no they have not" so I suggested that perhaps he should call the hospital himself and see if he could find anything out,, well he called, and they said they could squeeze him in June 5th.

here's the problem:

I have mentioned in other posts that I have a trip coming up soon,, yup, you guessed it,, it's from June 3rd to June 19th. and his freakin operation is during my time that I have booked to fly to BC!!!!!!!

would you:

a) cancel your trip to stay home and nurse hubby back to health

B) go on your trip anyways and hope for the best, or get someone to come check on him

c) ask doc if he can pospone it

I don't want to give up my already planned and reserved trip!!!!!!

what to do??

How long would the recovery be? Personally, I would go with option C if it won't interfere with his going back to work July 1st.

Being in the Canadian health care system, do you have a little leeway to call and plead your case to them to get your hubby in sooner? My sister in law had to reschedule some stuff when she had to fly home when her mom was dying, and was explaining a little bit how the system works.

I had my left side repaired the 30th of last month and will be off for close to six weeks. No lifting over 5 pounds. Have someone on hand to drive him home from hospital. Make up and freeze some meals to get him through your time away. Go on your trip! blush

They can't squeeze him in any sooner? He isn't working - so is he flexible with dates and times? I would call the doctor, clinic, hopspital and anyone else that would listen and tell them that he needs to get in sooner. Keep calling and see if they have any cancellations. Squeaky wheel gets the grease!!

After I would try to reschedule which would be Option C(Char said it-the squeaky wheel can get the grease!) then I'd take option B as long as someone could come in and check on him. What a hard call though Sue! What does your hubby want you to do?

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
