Check in for surgery is 0600. Then it is hurry up and wait for two hours while a half dozen RN's each ask you the same questions with your ass hanging out one of those gowns. A sense of humor never hurts. Now 0430 and time to feed the fire, get my brother up, and get my things together. Will bring my bluetooth speaker so I can have Pandora off my phone. Shall also bring my current read, "The Grande Ballroom, Detroit's Rock and Roll Palace." During High School, every Friday or Saturday evening was spent either in the Grande Ballroom, Eastown Theatre, or Birmingham Palladium, all infamous music venues of the 60's and early 70's. Not sure when I will be back.
