I sit in my bed at Mt. Sinai Hospital. It is 2:20 in the morning. I am alive. Patty tells me the Doctor said my surgery was a complete success. The cancerous prostate is gone from my body. What a journey it has been. I know not why, but I have been given a private room. The nurses went out of their way to move me into this lovely room with a huge window looking at the city. I have been sleeping well. I pushed myself to take a walk earlier. The halls of the hospital are totally quiet, I mean upstate country quiet. It really is quite amazing. I never expected I would be laying here after surgery, no pain, in deep quiet with a great sense of peace in my heart, mind and body. What wonderful care I have been given. I am deeply grateful for the peace the Lord has given me through the rising PSA, the biopsy and all the events leading to my surgery. When Dr. Samadi came to meet Patty, Mal and I to guide me to surgery, joy arose in my heart when I saw him. There truly was within me such a deep confidence in him that peace invaded my entire being. When I witnessed the gentle, interested and kind manner in which he engaged Patty and Mallory, my heart filled with love for this sweet man. It was delightful to see a few minutes earlier one of Dr. Samadi’s surgical staff put his hand upon the doctor’s shoulder displaying great fondness and affection for Dr. Samadi. The calmness of the operating room, the warmth of the staff throughout the entire process, all allowed me to lay down upon the operating room table, at that critical moment, with complete confidence that Dr. Samadi and his staff were going to take an excellent care of me. I completely yielded myself, surrendering any anxiety or fear and with gladness and peace gently moved into sleep.
