Yet again for the past few days I have had no net. Gross! Then today I got an SMS from Telkom to say they had re-tested the line and found it free of defects. They requested that I transmit an ‘F’ if it was still faulty. The ‘F’ I transmitted was filled with meaning. As I pressed the ‘send’ button, however, the internet returned. That very instant. What the …? Is somebody trying to mess with my mind?
Anyway, I have spent an interesting morning going through a meeting with a surgeon and then all the paperwork for a hospital admission. Something to look forward to in the New Year …
On 9th when I am due for being carved, all I will have to do is breeze in and relax. Apparently I need a chunk of what looks like a naartjie bag to be inserted into a small incision below the navel, and then stapled in place inside to stop the bulges from bulging. Chances are it will have to go both sides. If things go well, I will be driving again in three days and able to cycle after two weeks. I hope things go well, then!
He didn’t say how long to horse-riding – hopefully the same.
Why do they call these things hernias? Surely in my case it would be a hisnia?
