My Dad had emergency surgery last night for an ulcerated eusophagus. He is recovering at the hospital.

In other news, I changed the date on some posts just to get them out of the way. I'm off track but I don't want to stay there so I need to keep going!

Dunno what to say except I hate hospitals. I hate them so much but once I'm in them, for whatever reason, I become meek Hospital Man. It's really different than being Airport Man, but somehow I cope.

Hint: don't read the magazines for any reason. They never allow feel-bad magazines -- you're only ever going to find "Men's Fitness" and "Veterinary Chronicles." And even touching them will acknowledge your already-compromised immune system.

So maybe take that image with you when you go next. Don't touch the magazines, look alert when a name is mentioned on the intercom, and realize that all male nurses are named "Gerhard." Don't ask me why. I just know that it's a secret hospital code.

Thank you!

I would say all the male nurses in Toledo are bald and named Bill but I think it's the same guy shuffling around between hospitals! : )
