I spent the first part of the day closing out and handing off tasks at the day job, the next part of the day coping with Fleet (which beats the tar out of a gallon of GoLYTEly), then in a presurgery intake appointment, then time with the extended family, before settling down for a movie with the_child while lasirenadolce does her thing on prepping and planning the next two weeks.

No more prep for me. A short night's sleep, out of Nuevo Rancho Lake a little before 5 am, and into the OR. They're supposed to start cutting around 7:30 am Pacific time, and a preliminary guess is that I'll be in recovery around 9:30, and out to a surgery wing bed in the early afternoon. lasirenadolce will update here as time and Internet access permits.

Meanwhile, life continues to hand me good news. A friend emailed that she saw a whole pocket of the Mainspring Powell's | Amazon thb | Audible ] mass market paperback in a WalMart in El Paso. Today the_child made the cut for a role in the professional performance of ¡Entusiasmo!. I've told her that wanting to see her perform is what will bring me out of the hospital.

Y'all play nice while I'm gone. There'll be a quiz once I'm back.

We'll be here when you get back. Even if there is a quiz.

(And Fleet is better than the awful GoLYTEly. Praising with faint damns as that may be.)

You relax and work on healing. Sending you good energy.
Remind your lady, It always takes longer than they expected, but the doctors are good at sending out emissaries to tell her how things are going. Breathe.
*hugs* to the whole family.

Sending good vibes. Hope that this time, they manage to turn the bed around so that you get the five star view.
