On this day 6 months ago I had my schwannoma surgery. It was a success! The surgeon Dr John Lumley skillfully removed the tumour from my abdomen. I went to the Intensive Care Unit over night and the next day went back into the operating theatre for another surgical procedure.
Over those two days I was fortunate to have the anaesthetist Dr Keith Brown, and another anaesthetist I was too knocked out on the second day to know the name of, taking good care of me in the operating theatre. I met several operating theatre assistants and nurses when I first entered the theatre but as I became anaesthesised I knew nothing about them afterward. I am sure they really took great care of me.
Thanks to the Universe, Buddha and God! Thank you to the great surgeon Dr John Lumley and the Wesley operating theatre assistants and anaesthetists! I am very grateful to have had them taking care of me and to have a second chance of life.
The schwannoma was removed from me and is out of my life. I have recovered mostly now and will be taking this second chance of life to improve my life, my being, mentally, emotional and physically.
Well I wrote about the Cowon X7 hard drive based MP3 player last time, but that is the player I bought for my wife. She has been very pleased with the Cowon X7 and a pair of Monster Turbine High-Performance In-Ear Speakers.
I also wanted to buy one MP3 player for me to listen at work too.
For me I wanted an MP3 player that produces high quality sound plus is Android based and has reasonably long battery life.
I mostly enjoy listening to my music at home. My wife is the only one of us using portable MP3 players on the road regularly. Then one day I decided I want to listen to music while at work!
Plus I had enough of cleaning the battery terminals and repairing the kinked up and internally broken DC wires that powered my wife’s iRiver T-60 from a remote battery pack. So it was time to give her a new MP3 player and myself one too!
After the CD-based MP3 player becomes too wieldy for my wife, plus I ran out of rechargeable AA batteries and didn’t want to buy a new set, I started looking for a flash based MP3 player.
My first MP3 player is an iRiver2 IMP-250 CD/MP3 player. I bought it online in 2002 and this player has worked tirelessly and reliably for years and is still working now. It survived a drop or two with some internal plastic bit broken but it was easy to open up and repair.
