Tom said he was setting the alarm today for 6:00 -- and I was dressed, packed, etc. before I realized it was only 5:45. Tomorrow he definitely has to be up at 5.
Anywho, McDonald's for breakfast on the way to the train, train just before 9:00, North Station at 10:30, Dr. Zeitels' at 11:30. Then he has to get over to Mass Eye and Ear for a CAT scan. Then maybe we can get the small bag to the hotel (Holiday Inn Beacon Hill a block away from the hospital) and check in. Or maybe we can do that on the way to Mass Eye and Ear -- depends on whether we can get a Partners van or have to hoof it. Maybe we can get together with Kendall or, if he's not up to visitors, at least see Jacqui.
Tomorrow he has to be at Mass General at 6:00, surgery at 8:00. Don't know what time they'll turn him loose. We'll prolly eat mac and cheese for dinner tomorrow night at Au Bon Pain on the corner, but I'll probably get to have lunch at Mass General's Eat Street Cafe which has GREAT soups and breads (and other stuff). Not sure where we're having dinner tonight, but Tom doesn't want to go to Phoenicia (a lovely little Lebanese restaurant) this time or the pub across Cambridge St. (which is loud and plays the wrong kind of music).
Cab to North Station Wednesday morning -- home by noon-ish. Hope it doesn't snow too much tomorrow.
I'll keep everyone posted via the computer in the business center at the hotel.
Thanks for all the good thoughts, prayers and white light!
