Was operated on yesterday with the surgeons removing an 89% blockage in
my right carotid artery. They released me at noon today and my son drove
me home in a driving rainstorm then turned around and went straight
back. Good kids are a joy.

I'm sore as the dickens but recovering well. Miz Anne is okay and Sleepy
is finally calming down enough to talk to her. Got a sore throat from
being intubated and was fed so much liquids "inconveniently" that I was
up all night going to the bathroom every 15 minutes.

I got pain killers and mint tea for the sore throat so am reasonably
happy. Has been raining here all day so don't know what the garden is
doing. It's good to be back home.

Life is good.
