Does your husband get a say? Would you deny him the opportunity to be stuck in the same small room as the woman he loves more than anyone in the world while she goes through a degree of pain that, were it inflicted on a terrorist caught on video planting a bomb and there was only 26 minutes until the second one went off and he was the only one who could spill the information, nevertheless our president-elect would say, “Nah, that’s inhumane, just waterboard him”? Would you prevent him from hearing screams that will cause him to wake up with a palpitating heart in the middle of the night for the next five years? Would you prefer he sit in some sterile waiting room, posting FB updates, while you go through a perfectly routine procedure? [“Doc just said she’s going into recovery soon. Also, finally got caught up on GoT Season 8.”] Just something to think about.
