All is well

Jay just got out of surgery.  Dr. Philip Paty and his team took very good care of him.  There were not one but three obstructions: bands of adhesions that formed after his abdominal surgery, so it was a really good thing he went into surgery when he did.  This explains why Jay has been in so much pain recently.

Thanks for all of the love and support.  It works!

    Thanks Katie Rose

    This feels like very good news. Jay certainly has an amazing team around him. Not least of which is you!

    I had lunch yesterday with a friend who is looking for the right job which means defining what that is which means defining what you like to do which requires more thought than many people are trained to give, so we had a lengthy and productive time. A block away I knew that the triumvirate of Karen, Betty and Susan were having one of their birthday lunches. They were meeting at Mimi’s where the food is pretty poor but there is a piano with a pianist, an older hippie type, and the idea was to drink and sing, I think. As I passed after my lunch – see above – I saw them all in the window table, talking, would you believe. I was summoned on bended knee to join them, and it seems that they were all so full of news that they never got around to singing. The pianist, knowing it was a birthday celebration, was playing all sorts of birthday related tributes but the triumvirate were blissfully unaware. They all love each other so much that they are completely involved in their update. He got a really good tip anyway!

    Love and good thoughts to you guys, we are with you in spirit. John and Betty
