Beginning of a long day

by on April 16, 2009

I just started my first stint in the waiting room.

We arrived this morning at 7:30am to get the Gamma knife robotic thing calibrated.  They put about a dozen reference dots around her head and took a complete MRI.  She looks like she’s about to enter the Matrix.  Yesterday afternoon she got a hair cut to simplify the shaving today.  Her hair is shorter than mine.  Our daughters said she looked like a little boy.

She’s in Pre-Op now.  I can see in her eye’s that she’s scared.  I just turn up the jokes-nothing overtly offensive or racist.  Things I know she’ll laugh at. 

The nurses are going to call me when she’s ready so I can sit with her a bit.  This is going to be the last time I see her before the operation.  I’m composed but scared.  I’m not sure what I’m going to say.

    Sean,

    I know it’s going to be a long, lonely day for you, but please know that we’re all right there with you in spirit. Saddleback is a great facility, so she’s in great hands. Satomi has already proven herself to be an extraordinarily strong woman, and she’s very fortunate to have your constant love and support.

    Thinking positive thoughts for all of you.
