It’s over! It’s done!

Yogi Berra, “It ain’t over till it’s over.”  Herb Stein, “It ain’t done until it’s done.”

It’s over!  It’s done!

Surgery was this morning.  It was less than an hour and uneventful.  Joyce is in no pain.

Here’s another curve ball thrown in last week for good measure to add to the stress and anguish we’ve already endured.  Joyce was scheduled for VNS replacement surgery Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at Cleveland Clinic, Weston, FL.  It was cancelled by the hospital. 

I immediately went back into battle mode with the executives at that facility as well as their corporate executive offices in Cleveland, OH.   More bureaucratic gibberish to listen to and overcome.

Forget the details, surgery has successfully and uneventfully been accomplished this morning.  We finally achieved our goal.  Joyce is doing very well.

My concluding thoughts on this 4 month 24/7 struggle to follow later once I calm down and debrief from all that has transpired.
