My day started at 3:45 this morning. Seriously, there is not enough coffee in the world that would make getting ready for a long day at this time of the morning ok.
At 5:15, mom, dad, my son, and I boarded the shuttle from the hotel to the VA hospital. Dad is having surgery. Agent Orange is a gift from the government that just keeps on giving.
The tic tic tic of the second hand making its usual circuit around the clock face seems to be louder than usual. I have brought my laptop, my handy dandy thumb drive, a pad of paper, and numerous books for research…and if the words don’t flow through the tips of my fingers, I have my lovely kindle to help pass the time.
Oh oh ooooooh…the working title (subject to change) of my fairytale retelling is….Breathe Me to Life. I’ll let you try to guess which fairytale it’s based on.
If you have a mind to…prayers and petitions to whichever deity you choose would be most appreciated.
