Surgery all done. It’s amazing! I must have slept through it. Ha ha – yes I sure did, with a general anaesthetic. I was 2nd on the list so it was a very early start this morning and minimal waiting around.
Now I’m awake I feel surprisingly ok so far. I’m in a tangle of leads and lines of course but I’m glad I can wriggle around to get more comfortable.
I’m in the beautiful Mater Mothers hospital, on the side with a city view. That fits because I feel like I’m still in the human race and likely to go home before long (a few days I guess). The rooms on the other side of the building with the heavenly figtree views have been for times of serious escape from the world (in my experience).
My surgeon and nurses so far have friendly familiar faces from last time (2009) and it has been easy for me to feel relaxed and trusting. I love these robotic trousers that are gently massaging my legs!
John was with me and my beloved kids and sister will be here to visit me soon. Also I will have a report from the surgeon when he’s ready.
Good riddance to that nasty tumour!
