Out of the frying pan, into the OR

Taking a few more days offline as I go in for my surgery first thing in the morning. They’re taking out about a finger-sized piece of muscle from my thigh which I’m told I will hardly miss and will heal from quite quickly so with luck they are telling me the truth and there will be little downtime (Say WHAT?). It’s so hot and noisy in this studio though, enough so to risk my health with adverse effects on healing, that we’re all going to spend the first two nights of recovery at a nice hotel instead. Hopefully that’ll also off-put any stress that Nefarious has from this with the joy of the hotel’s four-storey high corkscrew waterslide. I will do my best to take some photos of the operation.

    What a great idea for your recovery. Ari’s such a little trooper with what everything’s been happening lately. I love hearing your methods for making her life changes more tolerable. You’re an amazing father.

    If I had a billion dollars I’d also have a crazy high waterslide but that would be the only ridiculous expense on and for myself. Oh and kids and Grands could enjoy it as well!

    I send you flowers, oddles, by thought-o-gram! Get hyper soon!!!

    Hope the operation goes well and your recovery is speedy! Taking Nefarious to a hotel for a couple days is a great post-op idea.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
