Hi Hillbilly Mom,
I had a dream last night about waking up during surgery. It all became quite surreal when I woke up, got them to stop while I went off to the toilet. Amazingly I didn't bleed from the open wound or anything, and everyone just stood around calmly while I went.
More on this in my blog tonight.

I know you said not to read thursday and Friday's post until after Robin's surgery know how you tell your kids not to touch something because it is hot and it will hurt and then they do it anyway? I did that my whole childhood...........

I am feeling better. Thank you.

I am very afraid. We are on the same wavelength, waking up from surgery. I hope it doesn't actually happen to you.

Dave, Dave, Dave,
What are we going to do with you? Congratulations on surviving childhood. Now, just don't TELL Robin about it. We don't want her worried about waking up during surgery!
