December 1, 2018 - Recovering

Surgery is over: and successfully, according to Dr.Boyle. It took about three hours. Recovery is under way.

None of the unfavorable side effects have taken place. My voice is unaffected.

I don’t know whether it’s because surgery to the side of the neck is more difficult than surgery (thyroidectomy) to the front of the neck, or whether it’s because I’m five years older, but I’m finding this recovery slower going than before. I think it’s a little of both. I’m making progress, though.

One difference is that I do have a drain implanted - a plastic tube sticking out of one side of my incision. This was expected. Nurses stop in several times a day to empty the little plastic cup attached to it. Obviously, there’s no going home until the drain is out, but at this point I wouldn’t have the energy to do for myself at home, so it’s  just as well.

The care here at Memorial Sloan-Kettering is first rate. All the staff are very attentive.

I do very much appreciate all the prayers and expressions of support.

Carl,
Memorial Sloan-Kettering is where my mother was treated for leukemia, back in the 80's. They really are top notch, glad to hear you're there, they'll take good care of you.

My prayers are with you, as they have been through all of this. You are one of my oldest friends, since the days on Pine St., and I'm glad that you are still with us. You are truly fighting the good fight, and the Lord obviously isn't done with you yet!! Keep up the God work!

Be well, be at peace, and most of all, don't stop talking!! :)

Your (old friend),
Deacon Greg
