My father's surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. I'm considering calling him tonight and giving a detailed description of the steak and crab leg dinner we're having (even though we can afford neither, and he knows it) because he's going on his second day of a liquid diet in preparation for tomorrow's procedure. Major bummer (yes, I was a child of the 80's.)
Those of you who check in regularly and believe in this sort of thing, would you mind sending a little extra hope over to Durham NC tomorrow? I'm sure he'll be fine - but Judy could probably use all the energy she can get. She has the unenviable task of waiting at the hospital for him to come out of surgery and anesthesia. I'm hoping she has a good book, although when Duckie went in for her tubes (a much less complex surgery) I was a basketcase and couldn't have read the ingredients on a jug of spring water, much less a book or magazine.
