Wouldn't it be cool if you could hear what every blogger sounded like?? Tell everyone, let's make this a big deal and get everyone's voice in there!
(PS....Thanks again to everyone who sent good thoughts to Alan. He is pretty much back to normal now....just a bit tender and tired, but definitely on the mend. Thanks!)comments??? (2 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So I am currently working on my second, rather large, martini of the day trying to unwind from all this. I'm sure I could go on and on here with things like rants about the hospital, praises for some of the nurses, and stories about the tap-dancing toddler in the room next to us.....but I'm just too wiped out. Now it's time to just veg in front of the TV.
Thanks for all your good thoughts! Hopefully we will return to our regularly scheduled program sometime tomorrow.comments??? (5 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So he's in surgery now. I decided to come home and try to get some sleep, since they told me I wouldn't be able to see him until 4 or 5 in the morning. And I must say, driving home was not much fun.....and not only because of worrying about Alan......but because this hospital is in the middle of one of the worst crime neighborhoods in our area. Drive by shootings are a very common thing (while we were waiting, someone was even brought in with a gun shot wound!) It is recommended that you do not drive there late at night.....and here I am, a white girl alone in a BMW, driving at 1:00am. Just a little scary. And on top of that when I went to get my car out of the parking garage....the garage was closed! To get to the garage, you essentially have to walk in the dark, down a very lonely street. The only people around were me and the guy who was walking a little too close behind me. Then, just as I got to the garage and tried to walk in.....the security guard shut the gate and got back in his truck! It took a bit of doing to get him to let me get my car out.
Argh. I know I'm just rambling on here, but it's helping me calm down a bit. This whole thing has been a bit tramatic.....and watching someone being wheeled off into surgery is never good. Please think good thoughts for Alan. I'll give you an update as soon as I can.comments??? (3 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
