The big day

Tomorrow is the big day – the surgery to bypass the aneurism-affected artery in my head. I really appreciate all the good wishes and positive thoughts and prayers from friends and readers. My neuro-surgeon is highly regarded and well-liked and respected by the staff here, and the whole neuro care team is fantastic – skilled, caring, and focused on patient well-being, so I’m in excellent hands. And the doctors have promised that they’re going to have an early night tonight, and a good night’s sleep, so they’ll be fresh and ready in the morning 🙂 They have the hard work to do; I’ll just be snoozling through it all!

The surgery itself is quite lengthy, so I may not be settled into ICU until the evening, and they’re planning to keep me unconscious until well into Friday. I’ll be in ICU for some days, and in hospital for maybe up to two weeks, so I probably won’t be online again for a little while.

Gordon will post updates to the blog with news on my progress; it may not be tomorrow night, as it will be a long day for him, and he may not see the doctors until evening. But he’ll post when he can.

Thanks again for all the good wishes. They matter. I’m planning on getting through this fine, and getting back to writing books as soon as possible. The current book is just getting to a really good bit – plenty of motivation to come through surgery with flying colours so I can write more!!

    You both are most definitely in my prayers in the coming weeks, along with the team working on you during surgery and in post-op care. 🙂

    Is there any chance of getting the hospital name/ward so I can send a card or two to you while you’re convalescing, Bron? If so, then my email is
