So I spoke with my surgeon last week, he is back to work but not fully better yet, as he had suffered from some kind of brain nerve inflammation/infection that caused terrible vertigo (how shitty does THAT sound?). He is doing small procedures but since mine's a 12 hour haul I'm going to talk to him again in 4 weeks and see where he's st then. Not thrilled about this further delay but shit happens.
So in the meantime I'm trying to get some (doctor sanctioned moderate) exercise, drumming up work (who needs photography?) and keeping calm and carrying on. Yep.
