The operation was a success, but the patient is taking a long time to recover. He is up walking about some and grocery shopping, improving a little each day. The surgeon removed a section of the transverse colon which was found to have a polyp out of control and increasing in size and girth. It urned out to be benign, thank God, but his abdomen is still tender and getting used to the new setup.
He will have a lot of blogs to catch up on, including the patient's own, but he hopes to get back in the swing of things before too long. His mental attitude is such that he's not quiet ready to resume a full load, what with income tax staring down his throat and ready to rip his brain asunder figuring it out. It gets more complicated each year.
He says, The Hell With It! and wishes everyone a HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY! Begorra.
