Ignoring the whining of people that want to go to the front of the line for non-critical procedures or wait times in Emerg when you have a cold, Canada's health care system is really good.  Anytime anyone in my family has required urgent care, it's been swift and attended to by highly skilled persons.

Glad things are going well for you.

I agree.  I was quite pleased with the swiftness that my cataract surgeries were done.

Get well soon, AB.

A staples job.

I guess it depends on where you live.  I had to wait 6 months for my first cataract surgery and 9 months for my second.

Mine was done at a private clinic.  :)

My daughter lost her first tooth today... My wife is working nights.  So I am on tooth fairy duty.  Good thing the tooth is gone.  Knowing my wife she would want to keep it.

Speedy recovery AB. Looks nasty, but I am sure it'll be worth the trouble when you're back on your feet.
