Surgery tomorrow

July 5, 2004

Hi everyone,


Tomorrow’s the day. I’ll be admitted tomorrow morning at 10am. Be at nuclear medicine at 11:30 for an injection into my nodes. Surgery is at 2:30. I’m expecting to stay overnight and by home Wednesday by lunchtime.


Feeling pretty good. Mom and Dad have taken Quinn and Kate up to the cabin at Harrison for a couple of days so I can sleep well and long (sadly, it is surgery that will finally get me some sleep!). Neil and my sister, Andrea, are taking the day off to be with me at the hospital for which I am grateful – although I think their real motive is to race wheelchairs in the hallways while I’m in surgery.


Neil or I will send you an update tomorrow or Wednesday. Thanks again for your support and prayers. We need them and feel them keenly.


much much love,
