Where have I been? I had surgery on Monday, a radical prostatectomy for cancer diagnosed in April. Yeah, I’ve had a lot on my mind. The surgery, performed by Dr. William R. Morgan, went textbook perfect, and I’m recovering nicely at home after spending two nights at St. Mary’s Hospital in Richmond. I’m sure some character in a future novel will get to sport a catheter for a while, a most interesting device… The nurses were absolutely fantasticâ€”Sue, Vernon, Rhonda, Kamari, and Shawntaâ€”angels all. I can’t say enough about the excellent, compassionate care I received. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
