Nerves of Butter

Well, by this time in the morning I'll be at the hospital getting ready for surgery. Needless to say, I'm not very 'enthusiastic" about the situation, but it needs to be done. :-(

Haven't been able to sleep much at all the past few nights. Oh well, they are knocking me out for it, so I don't need to be fully awake anyway.

Think I have enough to keep me "entertained" for the 7-10 days I'll be in the hospital. Apart from the TV they have in the rooms, I'm bringing the book I won a few years ago about "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" but haven't read yet (bought a cheap pair of reading glasses since I can't read printed text worth squat these days), and mom went to Fred's and bought me a new cheap MP3 player (since I let a battery corrode in the old one I bought around 10 years ago). Have loaded it down with old radio shows, like Burns and Allen, Jack Benny, Suspense, Dragnet, Gunsmoke, Fibber McGee and Molly, etc.
