They've scheduled his surgery for about two weeks down the road.
Going to pick him up today in a bit.
He will be having valve replacement and also taking some veins from his leg and some stints.
My grandmother, when alive, would go to the doctor at least once a month and usually more.
She would get a B12 shot. She'd say, I got to go to doctor and get my B12 shot. I often
wondered if it wasn't just water/placebo. According to her, every day something was wrong
with her. She lived to be about 82 and died a very peaceful death. She had a smile on her
face as she passed. In my head instead of hearing out loud 'I have joint pain in my leg today' or 'I
have a cold today' or 'my arthritis is acting up today'.........I heard 'I died today'. As if to day,
I am happy because something else is wrong with me today.
