You're only a day away...

Packing for hospital for O’s surgery tomorrow. I’ve packed Panties, Anticipation, Fear and Hope. Hopefully I’ll only need the panties.

My parents spent yesterday waiting at the airport to be finally given the last 2 seats on the plane. My mom asked if they could supply my dad with a wheelchair. The attendant asked which team he was with – Australia or New Zealand. He didn’t think football alliances ran so deep. Then he noticed 30 paraplegic men wheeling themselves towards the departure gate in airport wheelchairs. What are the chances of my dad being denied a wheelchair because he happens to be on the same plane as the veteran’s paraplegic basketball team? Apparently he asked one of the larger players if he could sit on his lap. Can’t keep a good man down.

He managed to walk slowly onto the plane and is now home in bed, awaiting his appointment with the cardiologist.

And we are off to the hospital on the other side of the universe, so I’ll be off the blogosphere for a week. But your warm fuzzies will follow me all the way into the ward, surrounding little O with their lovely fuzzines, helping her heal.

Sending you heaps & heaps of love & warm fuzzies. If O is half as tough as her brilliant Mom I know she will do great.

Warmest healing wishes to Baby O and your Pa. Get them both well and strong and then grab a few days for yourself before those babies come.

I am still laughing about the paraplegic basketball team grabbing all the airport wheelchairs. Timing is everything.

Fuzzies are heading your way YC and to O and even some for Dad Of YC too. Very glad he is home a bed. Thinking of you all and Baby's O's operation which I hope was a resounding success.

Apparently so.
Much luck, courage and affection to you, YC. Glad to hear about your Dad being home. Crossing all available appendages for O.
