8a EST. Having my gallbladder removed for reasons I can explain later. In fact, getting to the point of having this prosaic medical procedure (the most common surgical procedure in the US, I’m told) has been anything but prosaic and might actually make a decent story. (Which I suppose is true for everyone who has it.)
For reasons relating to this story but that will go unmentioned for now, the surgery has to be open, i.e. not laparascopic. Meaning incisions and the like. General anesthesia. Several hours (or more, I’ve been warned terrifyingly) on the table.
A complex procedure.
I look forward to awakening with further tales from the bardo.
Well, hell, at this point I’m just looking forward to awakening. Like, completely. Hey! That might not be so bad.
Much love to you who partake of this blog and The Open Heart Project and wishing you all the joys of awakenment.
