UPDATE ON RICHARD
Well, the Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter is in place, thanks to Dr. Willie Chu at Pinehurst Surgical! It was a flawless procedure and I was able to come home that same day.
Now, it will have to heal for 2-4 weeks as I begin instruction for home dialysis at Carolina Dialysis (which is only 2 block from my house, isn't that nice. And that instruction begins on Monday morning, bright and early.
I feel fine and there is only minor irritation in my gut where the catheter was placed. And that is to be expected. It was a laparoscopic procedure.
So many friends have come by the apartment to wish me well and some even are shopping for me. Margaret's Cantina has even sent over my favorite foods! I am truly a lucky man.
For those of you in the BROADWAY SINGS FOR HABITAT benefit, the show WILL take place, probably in early spring just as soon as we can work out dates with United Church. You will be the first to know.
I am already teaching my students here at home and beginning to coach some of the singes for the benefit. So you
will probably be hearing from me soon!
