Last night was perhaps the best night of sleep that I had since this journey began on Day 1. It was heavenly. I only hope that I have more and more like it going forward.
The other thing that was bordering on heavenly–and I apologize for being graphic–was having my first real post-surgery bowel movement. It appears that all systems are functioning as they should once again.
Well, today is a good day to celebrate–it’s my 53rd birthday! And I’m counting on it being the first of many more to come.
I was shocked when my brother-in-law showed up at the doorstep around 10:00 AM, having driven from Chicago to get here. It was a great surprise!
So I’ve been spending the entire day out of bed, enjoying it with family and some friends who stopped by. We even ordered a special dinner from a local restaurant to celebrate, and I may have overdone it just a tad. We’ll see how well I sleep tonight.
Tomorrow should yield the pathology results from the prostate and lymph nodes. I have know idea what time the doctor will call, but as soon as I hear something, I’ll make sure I get the word out.
So I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday under the circumstances–family, friends, and a BM. 🙂
