Procedure start

8:21 AM.

We missed it, actually - we went out to survey the Blondell Motel next door. Seems like a nice place, and the guy working the desk (who may well be the owner) was attentive and caring. Mom, Jen and I booked rooms starting Monday, figuring we'll be here for the conversation with Dr. Hunter on Monday and that surgery on Tuesday may well be early in the morning again.

Anyway, Mike is in now. What he was told yesterday is that the actual biopsy would be about 15 minutes, so I'm expecting to hear that he's moved to recovery any minute now.

A routine biopsy doesn't really deserve this level of play-by-play, of course, but it gives me something to do.

And it gives us a way to feel connected. Much appreciated.

I stayed at the Fiksdahl for more than a week when J had his surgery. Nice that it's right across the street with its own crosswalk to St Marys. Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced. I think. I spent 99.9% of the time I was in it fast asleep and the other .1% totally sleep deprived.

Don't forget to take care of yourselves, too, caretakers.
