As I begin this post it’s somewhere around 11:00 PM on Tuesday June 26th. Ra has my watch. I forgot to get it back from him after coming out of the operating room.
He and Gary had visited with Danny this morning, and then came to wait with me through the rest of the day. They only left long enough to have lunch. Would you believe they brought back a photo of Gary’s lunch – rack of lamb. I wasn’t even allowed water!
It has been a very long, emotional day. My surgery is over and I need to thank each of you for your prayers – I know they helped me through this ordeal.
WEDNESDAY 6:30 AM
Little stuffed Grover, who has been with me ever since I arrived in Emergency, is awaiting breakfast with me. Yes, I get breakfast this morning … I’ll welcome those clear fluids again. My nurse, Brier, has taken pity on me and brought me a cup of apple juice to “tide me over” until 8:30 AM.
After the surgery last night the anesthetist told me I “did very well”. A miracle! So many miracles all around us. Do you have miracles around you?
Posting to this blog is one of the miracles.
I’m lying in bed listening to a CD as I write. My son Ra will transcribe this into his phone later this morning and email it to my niece, Carol (that special lady), and then she will post it on my blog Thursday. Ra’s telephone might also be the camera used to take pictures here at the hospital. And then I get comments from all over – not just Canada and the USA, but France, England, Germany, Sweden.
While Norma is in hospital, any comments left below, or e-mails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will be printed out and delivered to her.
