blog under the editor's knife

Thanks everyone for all your comments on my blog! My operation is, apparently, in a couple of hours and I just wanted to take a little of the time I don't actually have to let you know how it's going to work while I'm out:

When I go under the knife, my mother (Mary) will give daily updates to Mary (Campbell) who will post them on my blog as I will be (with any luck) completely unconscious both during and after the procedure.

Mary (my mother) despite being retired and Mary (Campbell) despite her part-time job probably have more time to do this anyway.

Instead of the daily, "Mike had the operation and is now in intensive care, and doing very well, but visits are limited to 10 minutes and he probably won't recognize you anyway, because he'll be sleeping." every day. The Marys will post some funny and not-so-funny (but will hopefully seem, at the very least, incredibly ironic in retrospect) anecdotes from the past few weeks.

These will be posted according to the dates and times they actually happened - so you're gonna have to mouse around a bit if you want to read them :-)

Thanks,
Mike & the Marys

Dear Mike

We are doing the Russian thing, whatever that means, our heads bowed at a table, concentrating, and sending you all powers possible in thought. And all our love.

Liz and Henny

Mike,

Fingers crossed for you 9 hours ahead of time here in Australia... hope that all news will be good by the time I touch down in Europe again at the end of the week. Will keep an eye on things on the blog while sending healing vibes around space - cyber, global and everything in between. See you back at the beer garden soon sunshine...

Dear Mike,
Pauline and I are thinking of you constantly, and also of your mother. You two are just incredible. I cannot wait to see you on the other side of this trying experience, to give you a hug, and to buy you a beer. Bon courage.
Your bro,
Tom
