Day 1- good morning MGH

Well, made it through the first night ok. Took a few small walks, experimented with various painkilling cocktails, and overall feeling ready for breakfast. I’m mostly achey and sore, and quite stiff. But the nurses are friendly and attentive, so I feel well cared for. Thank you to Marc for the wonderful patience and love yesterday- it was a long 6-hour wait for him before he could see me, and he showed up with flowers, chocolate and salami. Sent the latter home with him, but kept the first two without hesitation.

And a special thank you to all of you who sent your thoughts, love and prayers to me during my surgery. It helped me immensely, and at one point as I was waiting alone just outside the OR, I suddenly felt like I was floating, lifted up in a warm glowing cloud, and so delightfully happy and light. No, I didn’t take any mood altering drugs- I believe it was all of you and the immense love you sent to me. Thank you thank you.

Now I’m sipping some delicious lime leaf tea, a generous and wonderful gift from a dear friend, and waiting for breakfast. I should be home by this afternoon, happy to see my family, see the kids’ new bunk beds, and just chill in our awesome loaner chair in the living room. Life is good, and I feel surrounded by friends.
