That sounds soooooo much better doesn’t it? As, it implies there will be yet more Little Couple wonderfulness just right around the corner…..
Well, TLC has yet to announce a date for new episodes, which is made all the more unbearable considering the dramatic note we are ending on right now—as, in tonight’s episode, we see Dr. Jen go into “survival mode” —putting her very best brave (but beautiful as ever) face on as hubby Bill Klein heads to surgery—Popdust has sneak peek video.
Surgery is a daunting enough prospect for anybody, any day of the week—but, when you factor in that it’s spine surgery, and you are a person who has already undergone more surgeries than anybody should be forced to endure, many of them unsuccessful—and you get a bit clearer an idea of the emotional turmoil Jen and Bill are experiencing.
“I’m concerned things could not go the right way, I’ve had more surgeries that have not worked than that have…and it’s spine surgery,” Bill explains. “It’s possible that I become paralyzed, but you can never tell, it’s surgery,….it’s the practice of medicine..it’s not perfect and I get that.”
“If I were to have something bad happen during the surgery that incapacitated me, or worse, then I would hate to not be there for my kids,” he says.
“I have so much more to be there for….and not just the responsibility, but all the wonderful things that come along with being a parent…. and being a husband, and all these wonderful moments that I would hate to miss, or to have change…. because of my circumstances.”
“The loss of control is very frustrating, and I think for me, right now, I’m just going to go into my survival mode,” Jen says. “The last time Bill had surgery, I cried, I lost my cool for a minute…. they wheeled him away and I just started falling…..
“I don’t know why I didn’t do that this time. I mean, I felt like that inside….. I felt like just losing my mind… it’s almost like it’s too hard to cry anymore….maybe that’s where I’m at right now… this year has been so much, it’s almost like I can’t even allow myself to break down. All you can do is keep going until you can’t go anymore. And you have to stay tough and you have to stay focused. I can’t cry… I’ve just got to be as strong as i can…..until I know it’s all better.”
Stay strong beautiful Dr. Jen! And, Bill, we will see you on the other side!
