… and a concerto in your uterus!
HINT: I be the soloist…the hospital the orchestra…and the antagonist?
“Concertos almost always have three movements… separated by pauses
… just as most Broadway shows have exactly two acts,
just as a limerick has exactly five lines…”
Met with an OBGyne Specialist this morning…
the ‘new to me’ doctor…
who will be ‘conducting’ several tests next week.
All due diagnostic procedures make for a happy patient… :)
and now… a pause
The Good Doctors and I have agreed on a hysterectomy…
surgical removal of my womb…
(the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus including cervix & partial vagina)
plus lymph nodes in surrounding area.
A biopsy will then be conducted & further treatment prescribed accordingly.
My room at ‘The SAAD Hospital Hotel’ is booked… :)
Check-in on Tuesday, May 26th with surgery scheduled at 12 noon.
I am advised to pack a suitcase… enough for a 3-4 day ‘mini-vacation’…
including books, mags & journals!
Forget the computer… for the Hospital Hotel does not offer Wi-Fi…
thou I have uploaded a mini Sony Walkman with all my favourite tunes
I plan to journal daily… whilst on ‘vacation’… and publish posts on my return home
let the music play…and the preparation begin…

my sense of this land & its people
