So today was the big day. Got up at around 5:30 to get ready. Left at around 06:30. Was sent back at the “gates” of the operating theatre. It took until lunch time before Pádraig was back up on the ward, and the afternoon to hear the good news from the surgeon that all had gone well and the operation had been a success!

He said we could most likely leave on Saturday – and celebrate Eastern at home.

Now, that was good news!

Can’t write more. Exhaustion settling in.
