Surgeons

Apologies for the lack of recent posts the author has been hospitalized. I had an operation to fix up my ulnar nerve in my right arm. Which meant I could not type. The surgery was straightforward but not having been under the knife for forty years, I found the experience daunting. However, my surgeon was what only can be described as the best.

Surgeons are often perceived as dictorial, dismissive and a breed apart. Mine was not. Yes he had the air of authority and not one for small talk but he really cared about his patient ie yours truly. So thank you Doctor Halliday.

A week ago I could not open a Coles bag of salad, my right hand was turning into a claw, now the hand works and I can do the simple things with my hand that we all take for granted, like typing this post.

For those who are not too squeamish
