Just a quick note to let you know that tomorrow is the big day.
Yes, indeed. Tomorrow I will be going under the knife and having a partial sternum-ectomy, some fatty tissue and a piece of my lung removed. Understandably I am not over the moon about having to face a four hour operation, but I am happy to undergo any procedure which aims to prolong my life, if not 'cure' me. Being the eternal optimist, I am sincerely hoping for the latter. Considering that I'm about to enter the confines of a hospital and endure a stay of a week, it strangely feels as though I'm about to embark on a holiday. My bag is packed, I have to remember to pay a few bills, send some e-mails and water the plants. I am packing my computer, camera, Ipod and a good book. All I need now is some sunshine. But failing that, a sunflower plant will do.
Wish me luck !
