The wake was a resounding success, downed many bottles of wine - thanks to all the blog readers who showed - what a treat - you know who you are. And thanks to all the rest of you lushes as well. Just kidding.
I will probably start the 24 hour kidneycam on the second day. If you skype, I think it's Robert Sommers. Let's video conference - if I got an epidural I could be the first to do play by play on my own nephrectomy.
I am, on doctors recommendation, on a liquid diet, which not withstanding the booze is getting a little old. Boy a brownie sure would taste good in the hospital - hint, hint.
Don't know the hospital scene but promise no journal like last time - will probably play my old blues guitar if the bunkmate is cool with out of tune jewish blues. Best way to get in touch is through Leslie - you know how to get in touch with her. Thanks to all the well wishers - what a great community I live in and great bunch of friends I have. My neighbor took me jeeping off road to some really magic areas sunday - thanks, Brian!
