Tomorrow is the day – January 26. Don’s surgery is back on. They called us from the surgeon’s office on Tuesday to let us know, which only gave us two days’ notice. He’s to report to the hospital at 10 a.m. for hydration (lie around while they drip saline into him). The operation is at 2:00, and should last 3 to 5 hours, depending on what they find. He’ll be in the hospital 3 to 5 days, maybe as much as 7, also depending on what they find.
In the meantime, I’m running errands, getting bills paid, cleaning house, doing laundry, and trying to carve out time to do a little re-writing. I’ll take a copy of my manuscript with me tomorrow. I always have big plans to write while sitting in the hospital, waiting. Hasn’t happened yet, but there’s always a first time.
I’ll report when I can. Wish us luck.
