The Gadfly: Aftermath

The Gadfly:
By Mike McCarville

The view from my hospital window is of a McDonald's sign. The view from my first room, which I vacated on Monday 12 days after open heart surgery, was of part of the Oklahoma Heart Hospital parking lot.

My return to the hospital yesterday was prompted by severe edema and an irregular heart beat, the latest in a string of complications that has made my July a month to forget.

The aftermath of major surgery, I am assured, sometimes is littered with complications. Put me down as a believer.
