sicker than a dog??

The surgery is cancelled. I have been sicker than a dog , with bronchitis, congestion, and the other crud that goes with it. I had every thing all packed and ready to put in the car. But I have been feeling so poorly these past two days, that I have wondered about the surgery and its complications if my lungs were weak.

This morning at ten till nine, ( I was supposed to leave town at nine to reach St. Louis at 11, and be subjected to the knife at 1:30) , the surgeon’s office finally called to say that it is cancelled.

Next date is October 3rd. Hopefully this old body will stay healthy at that time.

Just wanted you all to know.

    Thanks Dian. While I am very annoyed with myself for getting sick at this inopportune time, I am happy that the surgeon is good enough to know when not to put the knife to me. Oh well.

    A few weeks won’t matter, better that you are strong when you do have the surgery. I’ll be thinking about you and wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Oh, no! I’ve been thinking about you this morning and hoping that you were not sick! With all your visits to doctors and hospitals recently, It’s not really surprising — I hope you recover quickly so you can go ahead with the surgery in a couple of weeks! Love and hugs!
