My Dear Grasshopper:
You noticed that I didn't attempt to sway you either way.
Here, there is no wrong or right answer.
Just be prepared for the wave of emotions that you will experience once receiving the items; the sentimental value alone can be overwhelming.
It's not a matter of hurting him but rather you healing.
Id "dear ole dad" has issue with this, then he needs to take inventory(Lord forgive me) and see exactly what is going on with his son.
The mere fact that they will be in your house will cause you a bit of anxiety and a week may even be a bit too long to wait.(speculating)
Ah, yes; there's the surgery this week with the right eye(hope the brightness is working itself out in the left---what did doc say?).
"I know sometimes you feel better a day or two after surgery and then as healing begins so does the pain."
Yep; this seems to sum it up.
I cannot even use the stimulator because even the slightest wave of current causes pain in the surgical areas.(stitches out friday).
Your prayers are heart felt, as I know that you feel mines.
You will be alright, my dear; just know this
