Four years ago……………………..today

Arrived at Via Christi Saint Francis in Wichita at 0530. Registered. Went upstairs to the get ready room. Got the abdomen shaved and then wheeled into pre-op. Got two IVs and the warm up shot. The last thing I remember was going through the double doors to the OR…………………..0945 Left Kidney with the Large Mass was gone. I woke up about 1300 being rolled to a room. Two IVs and a catheter and the cute little nurse said…………………….we need you to take a walk……………….

Needless to say my response was colorful………….The two sisters in the doorway left immediately……………………..

On day four in hospital, the doc who did the nephrectomy showed up and checked the big incision for the exit of aforementioned kidney, said I could go home and do nothing for a month. His parting words were……………the pathology said it was cancer……………………………….
