Ya, know? Waiting sucks. Having patience sometimes can be very difficult.
Had a relative have a pretty major, serious surgery today. The person getting having the surgery has had a difficult decade, it seems, and is rather frail so there was some definite risk involved with this surgery. Information about what was happening was slow, and when it finally came time to hear the results it became unbearably silent.
Like, so silent that when the results of the surgery were supposed to be given there was an hour where no one knew what was going on at all. Everyone waiting for word one way or the other….
Thankfully, the relative made it through and the surgery and is now recovering. There is still some danger, but on the road to hopefully being better.
Silence. Patience. Unknown.
It’s hard to handle at times.
