It's a New Dawn, It's new Day
That would make a good line for a song !! Anyway, late yesterday afternoon the surgeon, Mr Simon Jordon, came to see me and he apologised for the cancellation yesterday. He explained that he had to do an emergency operation on a 9 year old girl. However he had found a possible slot in the theater list for Tuesday and would be prepared to come in and do the operation. He normally only operates on Mondays and Wednesdays. There are still other factors which could affect this. He needs to find an anaesthetist, and this morning the theater team came to see me to explain that if other operations took extended time then I would possibly be cancelled.
I am showered, and gowned up. Consent papers signed, Nil by Mouth since midnight, and ready to go to theater for the operation to remove the tumour in my left lung.
Fingers crossed !!
