Two steps forward, three steps back and something else crappy

So its official, just waiting on a time and date. My Lisa (forgive the possessive tone, I'm tired), aka pandoramianche, is going back under the knife this week. She survived the weekend in the hospital on generous doses of pain killers and steroids for the headache from hell.
Seems the cause of this discomfort is her brain is settling and blocking off flow to the spine, or some such medical gibberish. Translation, VERY serious, bad, Bad, BAD. So they will go back in and put in some sorta shunt, which I don't understand the mechanics of entirely, suffice to say it acts as a detour around the blockage. Not a pretty picture.
That's really all I know at this point. They don't even have a vague guess as to how long this will put her back in recovery or bed rest and home from work. So we will just wait and see and cross our fingers to know more hopefully by the end of the week.
God, should've order'd a double scotch to go with my lunch today. Yes, I'm worried and no that's not the best way to handle it, but some habits we pick up as children of alcoholics and occasionally revert to.

Well you know that we are here for you and Lisa, and the rest of the family.

And we are all here to help where we can. Even if it's just someone to have a drink with.

Much love to you brother.
*tight hugs* Let me know if there's anything at all that I can do.
*hugs*
:sends endless good thoughts:
*hugs* I wish there was something else I could do other than let you know I love you guys. I may be able to help with babysitting or other assorted things if someone can let me know when!
If you come up with something that needs doing, I'm here for you. *hugs*
Oh no... :\ *so much hugs to both of you*

Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help, be it big or small.
Ditto.
Give her super hugs from me and I'll keep her in my thoughts.

I'll send her an email in case Lisa can still get them.
*hugs*
not to sound repetitive, but i'm there for you guys--let me know anything you need!
Lots and lots of hugs!
It would make me feel a little a little less useless if I could help you guys somehow. *hugs* to you, kiddos and Lisa!

Actually I might have something totally doable for today if you're free, its busy work, but essential and I've been putting it off for at least month because of everything going on. Call me when you get free today and I'll fill you in and work out a plan.
I sent you a text about this. Call me when you can. I can do it tomorrow of not today.
*HUGS* I'm so sorry honey... you know I am here for you and for lisa whatever you need, please don't hesitate to ask. And I love your kids and would be happy to babysit them anytime, even if you just need extra hands when you are home so you can get some rest. Just wish I could be there to help with mornings, since I know that's the worst time of day for you. *hugs* much love sweetie, let me know what I can do
give Lisa my love
Lots of love and good wishes to all of you, I can't imagine how hard and scary this is. We're here whenever you need us. No matter how mundane. *hugs*
Sending really positive vibes. I hope the docs do a phenomenal job and get her back to a speedy recovery.
