Surgery Soon

Dad’s surgery has been scheduled for October 28. He has to have an MRI before that, to find out how much of his aorta needs replacing.

Mom said, "And I don’t want anyone thinking they should come to the hospital and waste all that time. There’s no point."
I am not sure, but this could be Mom code for "I don’t want anyone to see me lose my shit."
I said, "Well, you’ll probably have a hard time stopping me."
"Whatever for?"
"To keep you company, for one thing," I replied.

So, there is a date. It is real. Mom said they were told to expect him to stay five to seven days in the hospital after the surgery. And then he’s gonna feel like hell for three to six weeks afterward. Others report longer.
