Well, mum said that the post she THOUGHT she had scheduled for yesterday musta disappeared into the black hole we have in the apartment!!!!!
What's that mum? Oh, she just looked at t he date and realized that today in 1961 (3 August 1961) when, as a teenager she had her open heart surgery in London. She said that it was very scary because there was still a fair risk, but she wanted to go on a Kibbutz in Israel and the docs said she couldn't go unless she had the surgery. (She ended up coming to the US instead, and has only been there once on holiday) She had to be out of work for 3 months when she had the surgery -- she was in hospital 2 weeks before surgery; 4 weeks after; 3 weeks convalescent home and then another 3 weeks before she could go back to work!!!! Nowadays, she says, she thinks that people who have that kind of surgery are out of the hospital within a week!!!!
Anyway, on to more cheerful stuff -- don't forget to enter a post before tomorrow night at midnight so you can be entered into a drawing for my gotcha day.
Mum said she will help me with that!!!!
Well, everyone, have a good evening
