An Angel Over My Shoulder

Today was the surgery and Julie Motz was the angel over my shoulder! She arrived at the hospital at 7:00 A. M. and stayed until about 9:30 or 10:00. I believe that her presence was appreciated by Dr. Neuwirth as well. I am not sure that I can tell you exactly what she contributed to the operating environment, but I felt comfortable. I haven’t had a chance to find out what she thought yet, nor do I know the results of the biopsy.

The good news is that I was home by 3:00 P. M. and spent some real quality time with my son, who came to visit me. On the side that is not such good news is that I came home with a catheter in me, which has to be there until Monday to take pressure off of my bladder. Aside from feeling really tired, I’m doing quite well. I have no pain, and only a little discomfort from the catheter.
