I have been in this hospital room for eight days!
I was installed here some time after surgery last Wednesday --- and here it is, Wednesday again.
I am on my third roommate. It's a lucky room because people are getting better and going home.
I won't say anything directly about anyone. Everyone behaved admirably in the circumstances. No one wants to be here, be sick, and be just behind a curtain from some stranger.
But it has been educational. Plus, I am following a couple of LMS survivors.
So, I feel really lucky about some stuff that has not happened to me:
I'm not confused, brain damaged, or in restraints.
No organ was nicked in a cancer surgery, causing so much trouble that the cancer is in the back seat.
I don't have an infection.
No chemo has caused any permanent damage to my heart.
(If any of those things have happened to you, I hope I haven't hurt your feelings by mentioning them.)
ONCOLOGIST NEWS FLASH
Dr Reidel called home to find out how I am doing! What a great guy. Lou gave him all the details. I will see Dr R around mid-June.
