Three years ago, my husband, Ray, who was 73 at the time, had three surgeries in eight weeks over the summer. One surgery was planned, and the other two were not. To say that I learned a lot would be a gross understatement. I decided to make a list of everything I learned, in case my husband or any other loved one was ever in and out of two hospitals, two Intensive Care Units, two Emergency Rooms and rehab again.
