This has been the strangest New Year I have ever spent. How I writing this now demonstrates how strange. I'm propped up in a hospital bed using a computer signed out from the hospital library but, believe it or not, this is the most normal thing I've done for several days.
I've had some physical problems lately that led to a couple of visits to ER. The second visit, on Wednesday, December whatever, led to more tests and the discovery of a blockage in the upper intestines. When my surgeon got out of surgery, he reviewed the info and decided that he was not qualified to treat me and transferred me to Rochester General in Rochester, NY. More tests and a scope. The surgeon doing the scope located the tumor and did biopsies. Now I'm waiting for a more specialized surgeon. With the holiday weekend, who knows when that will be.
In a couple of days, I will have my own netbook here but who know whether I'll be in any shape to use it.
The way I see it, this will be my third surgery in five months and the third one is a charm.
