Colin, great news, and great to hear from you so prompty. You must have a room with wireless and a laptop with you.
I join the others in welcoming you over from the dark side. Before surgery it's all worries about
doing the right thing and just the plain old terror of someone mucking about
inside you. Now it's all about
recovery. Drink, walk, drink, walk, take your pain meds, drink, walk, drink, walk. And, don't forget the pain meds.
Looking forward to further reports. Soon you'll be in the ED-and-what-do-I-do-about
