  • I just wanted to thank everyone for the kind words you’ve left regarding my previous post. The operation, they tell me, was a success and now I’m dealing with the aftermath. I’m still in the hospital and don’t really know when I will be released (they are waiting for my insides to start working again). It’s difficult to do once simple things like get out of bed and walk around (though I managed to do both the day after my surgery). Yesterday they allowed me a couple of popcicles which were the first non-water food I’ve had in a week.

    Each day I am getting a little bit stronger though and it is a great comfort to know that a malfunctioning part of me has been removed. Thanks again to all of you for your support. I’ve really enjoyed your encouraging words and even the jokes (though it hurts to laugh).

    I also need to say a big thanks to Jessie for (among many other things) purchasing me an AT&T laptop connect card so I can still be online. You would think that a modern 21st century hospital would have wi-fi, but I guess that is not always the case. At least they have cable 😉

    Until next time…
