May 8, 2006. The surgery is over. We’ll know in about 4 weeks if it was successful.
The doctors found a pretty large tear. The doctor explained that a typical tear is in the 11 o’clock position. Being the over-achiever that I am, my tear extended from the 9 o’clock postion to the 1 o’clock position. On top of this, he pulled out a foreign object the size of an adult canine tooth. My son wondered out loud if I didn’t eat my twin in my mother’s womb. His concern for my health is touching.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. I could feel your love, even though I was heavily sedated.
