Once more into the breach

6:35 am.

We're at Mayo - me, Mike, Jen, Mom - after an early morning drive. Mike just headed off to the surgical theater for the biopsy. The procedure is supposed to take about 15 minutes, but will be preceded by anesthesia prep (in addition to the induction he's already had). Then 1-2 hours of recovery, then he'll be back in the hospital room where we can see him, and the he has to demonstrate that he can walk and "empty his bladder" as one nurse rather delicately put it.

With the (obscenely early) start, we may be out of here by noon. I'm not counting on it, though - I prefer pleasant surprises.

Mayo (St. Mary's campus) is nice, and the nurses are professional and caring. Good signs.

More later.

Thanks for the update, Kevin. Keep up the good work, Mike. ;-)
