Yes, today is the big day. In about an hour we will be at the surgery center with Ted and Carrie for gland removal. Carrie will be the first one up for surgery, then Ted will have his turn. I know it's not major surgery and the surgery part doesn't concern me. It's the anesthesia part that always makes me nervous.
Time seems on fast forward this morning. One more cup of coffee as I slip into a pair of shorts and a t shirt, and sandals and I'll be on my way to collect everyone for the ride to the surgery center.
I'll have my cell phone along; a book in hand for the time spent in the waiting room. It's time.
