Some Answers


I never use an alarm clock to wake up in the morning. But I did today.

I have no trouble waking up in the mornings. But I did today.

Good job Linda insisted on setting the alarm anyway, although it took both of us pouring over the bedroom clock before we figured out how the alarm was set.

I can have no food or drink this morning before we leave for the hospital at 6:30. Outside an icy cold spring rain hits the window with the scratchy sound of sleet. Snow was predicted and the roads may be slick and hiding dangerous patches of black ice.

At the hospital I will be having a CT scan and then going immediately to the surgeon's office, where he will call up the results on his computer and, together with the results of the other tests I've been having, put together a treatment plan.

Whatever the results, whatever the plan, today will be life changing.
