The road less travelled

No Night of the the Long Knives....not today anyway.

It seems....according to the culture results that there is no infection. What does that mean?
Well, my neurosurgeon will not be sharpening the steak knives today.

I don't understand how there can be no infection, knowing the way I'm feeling, but the concensus is that Carl will not operate for now. There is a new antibioitic irrigation system that works on an outpatient basis and for now we will wait to see how the next few days pan out.

Bottom line...we will wait for a few days and then re assess. So, another chapter closes.. Hopefully not a short chapter.

A big thank you to everyone for your concern and prayers, you're all very special people to me and I appreciate all of you popping in to see how I'm doing. THANK YOU.

Loved the news today. Glad you have some time to think and figure and time for healing too. Thought about you this weekend and wondered how it was going. Keep up posted. Enjoy these days....
