Surgery went as expected. I am home, as lucid as I generally am, and the post-op pain is entirely different form the pain that made me endure this in the first place.
I wish to thank all of you who offered prayers and positive thoughts, although I though sacrificing a lamb on a stone altar under that sacred oak was a bit overboard.
I have a chapter of each of my two active stories in the posting queue. You should see one tomorrow and one on Saturday.
