I just need you around for the next 50 years. So, let’s just get you healthy.’ And that certainly helped me come to a decision. I couldn’t be more at peace with the decision.

Ugh, how awful. I mean, it’s great that this will, hopefully, take care of the issue altogether, but what an emotional slammer this must be.

Good luck, girl, and I wish you the best.
