Birthday!September 7, 2008
I had my birthday this week (1st of September) and just like other years I hardly paid any attention to it. We bought a large cake which despite my changed sense of taste tasted pretty good. It was a weird birthday. People did not know whether it is still appropriate to wish me “many happy returns”. Rest assured that I understand that and that I, no matter what you say to me, will take no offence whatsoever.
On Wednesday we also visited the Plastic Surgeon whom we met for the first time (he didn’t think so). He didn’t believe that the vacuum pump (intended to remove any liquid from the wound) would do any good. He then called the Neuro Surgeon and together they decided to clean the wound (sedated locally) before attempting major surgery.
