the road to recovery
I heard from the surgeon this morning that whatever it was that she removed has come back from the lab totally negative for residual bad cells. That must mean she "got it all". What's now left is for the wound to heal. I have dutifully changed the dressings and everything looks pink and healthy. Enough said.
While I was recovering yesterday, leg elevated, I watched this movie.
It's heartbreaking but I recommend it. All those beautiful boys mowed down by war, leaving behind their grieving mothers, wives, lovers. The true story of Vera Brittain, poet, author, pacifist.
