  Alive and Well?
Just a short note to let you know that I am not dead yet!

The operation took over three hours on Monday and they only did the clean-up portion. They did not fix the deviated septum. That will require another operation.

I was knocked out and intubated (i.e. a tube inserted to breathe for me). I did not know about the intubation till five minutes before the operation! Surprise! The good part was that I was out cold for the tube insertion and removal.

I had a little trouble coming out of anesthesia and required two breathing treatments to get my lungs back to functioning normally.

I spent Monday afternoon till Wednesday at 5:00 PM in the infirmary at the Correctional Facility. I am due to go back to the doctor on Friday to have all the packing removed from my nose. The pain is not too bad. Kind of like a dull ache and an itch that cannot be scratched.

I had five New York Times waiting for me when I came back and I did the Monday and Tuesday crossword puzzles to be sure my brain is still working. I will send more details soon.

Are you employed yet?

How about those Mets? I was listening to the last game on the radio. From the sixth inning on it was like the Mets of old but alas no rolling ball through Bucknerā€™s legs for salvation this time. Oh well, they did go farther than the Yankees!
Glad to read that Pete made it through the surgery okay. Hope he is feeling better by now.
