Aline came to visit around noon and stayed with me till around 8PM. I really appreciated that. Her parents came by to take care of the kids so we could spend a little time together. We talked. Did a couple of crosswords. And enjoyed a little kid-free time. As promised, doctors came for me around 4PM to operate. We joked with the attendants how come Aline had to walk down to surgery when she gave birth but I got a ride to the operating room? (Apparently women are tougher.) Surgery was a success and I went into the recovery room at 7PM to discover I had a catheter attached to me and a 12cm stent inserted inside me to help drain fluid from my kidney to my bladder. Lucky me. Apparently it wont be removed until July 13. Although the doctors promised me I could eat anything the nurses disagreed and said Id have to wait for breakfast the following day.
