    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    The surgeon did what was an experimental surgery at the time. It was a 2 year recovery from the surgery, so needless to say, the experiemental surgery was never really put into general practice.

    Went as Expected: Disagree
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA

    Birthday

    Celebration

    Instead of really celebrating my 40th birthday (you know, when everyone brings you black balloons and funny gifts because you're now over the hill), my wife threw a big 41st birthday party where we celebrated me being cancer free and how good God is!!
