I know it’s been said before, unfortunately even here previously (five years ago), but it’s time to say it again:
Tonight I brought The Long Suffering Wife home from the hospital, having once again had a major surgery for cancer. We are hopeful that it was caught early (we won’t know exactly for a few more days when the biopsy reports come in) and she’s an Olympic gold medalist in quick healing. It helps a lot that the procedure was done laparoscopically, and it helps a lot that she had a truly outstanding surgeon. Still, they were telling us to expect at least four to five days in the hospital, possibly even twice that, and she’s home in half of that.
So now it’s time for recovery again, a slow climb back to a new “normal.”
It also should explain the tone of many posts in the last couple of months. Let’s hope that the tone can improve along with the situation.
