We did BLB’s pre-op appointment, and he’s all set for surgery sometime next Wednesday. They will call us the day before the with the time. Which frankly sucks, but there’s nothing we can do to change it. This is how the outpatient surgery center works…evidently it’s a Need To Know Basis, and they have determined we don’t need to know the time.
I’m doing my best to write. And Wizard, well as I write this blog, he’s upstairs cleaning more blinds. He’s finished all the downstairs ones. Tonight I finally asked him, “Uh is there something I should know? Like we’re selling the house?”
He just grinned and said, “Go write your book, Witch. You stick to what you’re good at and let me handle what I’m good at.”
And this picture Bailey sent me with the message, “Witch, please come rescue me! Hurry!” (And this is not my bathroom! Just feel the need to clear that up)
Have a great weekend, and Happy Father’s Day!

Poor Bailey, he wants out of that tub. The ears say it all.
Not giving you the time of surgery seems a bit odd to me. You’d think that they would have to have everything scheduled all nice and neat in the computer. Go figure. It must be very frustrating. You can’t plan much and I’m sure BLB won’t be able to eat for 12 hrs prior either. I really hope they call you a few days in advance.
Wizard is so good. I like the moving comment :).
Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Father’s Day to Wizard :).

“Just feel the need to clean that up”? Darlin’, your Freudian slip is showing. Actually, since I’ve been on a cleaning jag all week, I’m feeling the need to clean that, too. Yesterday the toilets, tomorrow the world!
Ahem, anyway… Bailey!! Yay! And I’ll keep my fingers crossed for BLB next week. That sucks about the ‘don’t call us, we’ll call you’ appt time. But I guess it’s better than driving all the way in to find out his surgery’s been bumped. Heh, you and Wizard are so funny.
Have a great weekend, too, and give Wizard Father’s Day wishes from us. =oD

It’s been cleared my dear
And having worked in a hospital and registered pts. for Opt. surgeries I can tell you that is common practice. There’s a LOT of juggling going on between getting last minute referrals, scheduling Drs. so they have as little time between pts. as possible, adding pts. when others cancel or can’t GET their referral on time. It’s not how you’d imagine it should run but there you have it.
Again, BLB has my prayers !!!

Viki, it’s frustrating because we do everything they ask, make sure everything is in order. But I understand scheduling is not an exact science since there are a lot of variables involved.
Still not sure why Wizard got so motivated But I love the blind being clean.
Hope you all have a good weekend, and your B-I-L is doing as well as can be expected.

B.E, I fixed that, thanks! But oh yeah, that was a Freudian slip. It took me a minute to see it even after you pointed it out!
It’s very true on the surgery being bumped. It’ll work out. It’s a long ways away from us, so it’s better to be sure as you pointed out.
Clean toilets is a start in cleaning the world, LOL!

Ban, thanks for explaining! It makes sense. And thanks on BLB.

Oh, Jen! I’d feel the need to clear up the fact that wasn’t my bath AND that I needed to clean it, too. Yeah, I can tell a bunch of guys live there. Good on Wiz! Will you send him to my house? I don’t have many blinds, but they sure need cleaning. Sending good thoughts to BLB so they’ll all be stored up and ready for use come next week.
It’s Friday, witches! I think we need cookies and appletinis. Who’s with me?!?

Good luck w/ BLB’s surgery next week. I hope the surgery gets scheduled early so that you’re not waiting for it all day. I’ll be headed to NYC that day for my sister’s wedding next Saturday.
Does Wizard want to come here and clean? I can give him plenty of projects
Silver, I’m with you! I definitely feel the need for some cookies and appletinis! And some hunks. I think I’ll go hunt down Phoenix and see what kind of trouble we can find See you in the Lair!
