Cancer surgery video of me from 2003

Today is New Years Day, 2014.

On this day ten years ago, I was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery with a 4-inch vertical incision straight through my belly button, and a third of my large intestine removed.
That was the lowest point of my life…

A few months ago, while rummaging through some old stuff, I found a video clip of me in the hospital, shot immediately after I came out of surgery. I was in recovery, barely conscious, waiting to be taken to a room.

But somehow I managed to film myself for a few moments. I’m glad I did.

To the post!
