Today my husband had to go into respite as I'm off in hospital tomorrow for an op,I've been so excited for a break,first time in a year planned a nice meal etc,and all I've done is cry im missing him so much even though lately he's been really hard work,keep looking at the sofa thinking he's here.

Please don't cry, he will soon be back with you in his chair, it is only for a short while while you have your op and get better. Your husband will be fine and looked after.
Good luck with you op and I wish you a speedy recovery.

My wife's section 2 (28 days) runs out today so on Thursday (last) they renewed it for a 6 month section 3 so I might be looking at an empty sofa for a while.
Have some you time, have your op then look forward to the reunion.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder and I'm sure he's missing you every bit as much as you're missing him, it's not for long, he'll be back on the sofa soon enough.

This disease can always hijack us with unexpected emotional as well practical demands woody. I was longing for a break then my husband went into hospital for two weeks, and it brought up all sorts of upsetting feelings. Plus you've got the stress of facing a big op without the support of a partner. I do hope all goes well for you and your husband settles down in respite.

I agree having such a big operation without emotional support from your partner is so difficult. I only have a miserable cold and its made worse cos I am not getting any sympathy. Having to get up to tend to things is like double work when one is not well and you sound like you will need the break after such a big operation. Good luck hope your recovering is quick...

Hello woody, l know how you feel about the empty chair, when my hubby went into care, l got so upset seeing his empty chair, so l changed my dinning room into a sitting room just for me. It did help. l hope all goes well with your operation, you will soon be reunited with your hubby, thinking of you
