I know I have no good excuses for this long hiatus from blogging. I blame it on the major surgery where the surgeons took 8 hours to operate me and fed me anaesthetic for so long. My head was blurr for several days after the surgery and I had slight difficulty in remembering the roads when I was driving last November. I was not sure whether to turn left or right. My wife cautioned me that anaesthetic effects would last several months depending on the number of hours I was being injected or inhaled. So I googled online and was shocked to read that the side effects could stay inside the patient's body system up to one year and above! No wonder I lost my mojo in many things. I often had to struggle to bring myself to live normal like before. I had to do exercise frequently in the gym though on lesser scale as my abdomen's stitches have not healed yet. I am most thankful that I have been sleeping well at night and no longer suffer from bowel issues.
Last Sunday, I celebrated my birthday officially. The celebrations started on Friday 21st January and continued on till last night, this afternoon and tomorrow's lunch would be final. I noticed everyone was supportive and turned up full force after anxiously following my FB progress of my sickness, surgery until recovery stages. I am very thankful for everyone's love and moral support. I had frightened more people than myself over the colon's tumours and removal surgery.
I have celebrated my birthday with my loved ones over 6 times. I have only gained 3 kgs after losing 23 kgs before the surgery. I have been eating a lot, yet my digital weighing scale is hardly moving. Sigh!
I have been enjoying pre CNY dinners and lunches as well. Todate, I have tossed the ritual "Yee Sang" 5 times. More to come!
