I’m going to get my chance to pace the poop-deck, (Heh, Heh, I said poop 😆 ) and do my best pirate impersonation.
When eye wrote of having an impending eye operation, eye expected to be given a couple of weeks warning, so that we could adjust our sleep schedules. We are unlike most retirees, staying up late partying reading, and sleeping in.
Eye got 93 hours – less than four days – notice. A lovely tech named Olivia (Suddenly eye’m surrounded by Olivias.) called, at 11:30 AM, Thursday, January 3rd. to say that eye had surgery scheduled for 8:00 AM, Monday, Jan. 7th, and to be at the hospital by 6:00 AM to register.
It was bad enough getting the wife to a local hospital by 6 AM for her two knee surgeries, but this hospital is an extra hour and a half drive away. We’ll have to be ready to leave by 4. I might as well just stay up. I could peacefully sleep through the operation, but the wife would need sleep to drive me home. Then I need to be back at the same hospital by 7:30 the following morning, for assessment and removal of my pirate eye-patch.
Eye’m posting this note a day ahead of my normal schedule, just to give you the heads-up that I threatened promised. Just after midnight, eye’ll click publish on my regularly scheduled A To Z Challenge. After that, eye may not post for a few days, or a week.
Eye’ll see you here soon…. I hope. 😎
