Pre-Op Waiting

Pre-Op Waiting, originally uploaded by carolfoasia.

The long wait allowed me to read my new favorite book: Letters by a Modern Mystic by Frank C. Laubach. It is about a man's experiment to live in a conscious moment-by-moment communion with God! Perfect for someone facing surgery!

(George is always taking pictures of me reading - I really need to make a book of all the photos he has taken over the years)

I also listened to Shakespeare's classic comedy, As You Like It, as I waited. I had only 8 minutes to go when the anesthesiologist came to call. He said I could finish but then the operating room nurse, Ruth Ann (I had a good friend named that growing up so I remembered), came in to prep me.

I was able to finish within one minute after surgery and before I was discharged, and finished it when I got home!

Any day I can finish a book is a good day!
