That’s right, I’m bringing ponchos back, bitches!
Seriously, want to thank all the doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers at UCSF for what by all indications was a successful surgery. On Tuesday I’ll get a better post-op prognosis once Doctor Kandemir has had a chance to admire x-rays of his team’s handiwork.
Particular thanks to my nurses Leslie and Lyly for not taking my pain-addled bullshit personally and helping me hold on to some independence, and to the hospital chaplain, Imam Ali, for taking a moment on his rounds to let me lean on his compassion when I needed it.
As for my visitors and callers, I hope to thank you all more personally soon. But for now, I’d be in much worse shape without you, and I really do appreciate everyone’s patience.
