we're like strangers when we fight.

it is such an amazing change, isn't it? all the good stops, and all the bad starts. ears close, minds shut down, and the hurt takes over. i tried not to throw daggers at you this time... but stood there for you to throw yours at instead.

cheese has found the other cheese.

chalk took the news very well. with some regret, for sure, and requested for a promise to remain pals.

gladly promised.

the refrigerator is a happy place.

are all operating theatres so cold?

i don't really want to find out. :)

sedation was really comfortable... i was surprised. i guess it helped that i couldn't feel the pain when i woke up, since the painkillers hadn't worn off. i slept so well... plain darkness when i closed my eyes, a cosy room when i opened them, and nothing in between.

all the nurses were really motherly. my doctor was a calm tower of confidence, with a wise smile and kind eyes. i am very grateful.

recovery will take place slowly over the next 6-8 weeks, and another test is to be done in 3 months to confirm that the problem has been solved.

and if it is, all is not over yet, as there is another problem afoot. another round of tests and treatment is on the cards in the future, once this hurdle is crossed.

one hurdle at a time.
