My surgery was a complete success and I should be back to normal (or my version of normal) in about three weeks.
I would like to again thank the surgical staff and the staff of Nursing Unit #82 at the Rockyview Hospital in Calgary. Those folks work so very hard doing what they do so very well! For a while I felt a little guilty for my constant and unrelenting criticism of Alberta's severely broken health care system.
Then I realized that those hard working, dedicated folks at the Rockyview are not where the problems lie! Those people are working so very hard to keep the sinking health care ship afloat. We need to support them, and help them in any way we can to get those higher up in the health care system to realize what's going on and to start moving toward fixing it!
Thank you to all those who sent me their best wishes for a speedy recovery. Those wishes meant a lot to me!
