Heck last night I got a total of 5 hours sleep in 3 shifts, one 3 hour shifts then 2 separate separate 1 hours shifts, between 9 pm and 5 am gotta do better than that, working in it.
Up at 5am and left here at 7 check into the Stratford hospital they got me in a day surgery bed, IV installed (ouch) blood work etc, the up to see DR Wan, the surgeon for my liver biopsy, 2 pretty nurses got me ready on monitors cleaned up the the Doc came in with the ultra sound the area he was to target, Sterilized the are a painless freezing of the are then a deeper freeze into my liver. The biopsy results take about a week, so more waiting until the next move. Next a tiny long needle inserted to draw out 4-5 samples, then put a bandaid on it! So easy quick and painless. The IV was much more painful than the biopsy, go figure.
Now back to the day surgery recovery and have to wait 4 very long hours until they set me free. 2 hours before I could even have a sip of water, man was I thirsty!! Now it is noon, in one hour and they can bring some food. I would like to thank all the friendly helpful staff here at the Stratford General Hospital.

So other than no energy at all an still feeling week I seem to be getting somewhat better every day. Not out of the woods by a long shot, they still have to figure what these tumours on my liver are all about.
Another long day at the hospital and Suzie there by my side (what trouper she is) taking notes from the doctors and nurses. Especially the stuff I can't hear very well with my hearing impairment.
Time now to relax for the evening read a bit and hopefully get an even a better nights' sleep
tonight.Want to thank everyone again for all those wonderful positive thoughts, and prayers coming in on the blog, via facebook, emails and text messages.
