For those who have inquired….
First of all, thank you for your concern.
Secondly, I am going to have colon surgery at some point. The date keeps getting pushed back. The damage is serious, but fortunately (and this is the good news learned this week) not widespread. This means the surgery can be done laproscopically.
But the date is looking like sometime in January or February. In one sense, this is good: it means the doctors don't feel a sense of urgency (technically, I've been taken out of the Trauma Unit's files as of this week). On the other hand, it just means that this whole mish-a-goss (not a real word) is being prolonged.
Anyway, I'm mentally taking a respite from the whole issue, to the extent that my innards will allow me.
