The following update was posted by Mr. Nemesis. I was not coordinated enough to post myself after surgery.
Today I went down to MGH and bid fond farewell to one of my two best friends, and I don’t mean my pals in the Winnebago. Hopefully, my left ear’s sacrifice was not in vain and Betty went out the airlock with it. I’m currently stuck in traffic on the way home and will probably crash as soon as I get home. Before then I may take a few of the new narcotics the docs prescribed me and hope they work better than percocet, which sucks.
Tomorrow, hopefully, I will post a real update and not rely on Al, who seems notoriously unreliable and rather colorful in his postings.
