The surgical operation I underwent a dozen days ago (with total success) is referred to, in French, as a prostatectomie avec préservation. A few months ago, a small proportion of cancerous cells had been detected in an inner region of my prostate, and a decision was made to solve the problem surgically by removing the organ while preserving intact the central nerve. [Medically-inclined readers will understand immediately what I’m talking about.] Everything went over fine, in the excellent environment of a private clinic called La Parisière in the Drôme town of Bourg-de-Péage, on the banks of the Isère opposite Romans.
The peaceful park of the clinic is the home of a couple of peacocks.
During my hospitalization, Sophia resided in a delightful dogs’ home called Bayannes, in the nearby village of Alixan. This afternoon, we're both immensely happy to be back home again at Gamone.
