Got a call from my doctors office this morning. I am on the surgery schedule to have a couple large stones removed from my salivary gland, actually to remove the gland.
So she calls and the first thing she says is “I have some bad news for you”.
I’m not the type to worry about things, so I didn’t freak out. It turned out that my surgery which was scheduled for next Tuesday is postponed until the doctor can schedule with another surgeon. They want two there because of some facial nerves that are close by.
But really, is that anyway to open a conversation with a patient on the phone, who just woke up?
In their guilt, the pain meds are flowing freely, which means no powertool projects for a while.
I am working on a couple of clocks which are not coming along as well as I had hoped.
Anyway, that’s my life at the moment. Enjoy your clarity of thought.
