Got the word from the surgeon that they can't get me in on December 16. I am on the waiting list, though, so if someone cancels, I am first on the list. The nurse said I had a shot at December 18 or maybe December 30. I think if I don't get the 18th, I will take my name off the list. Having the surgery on the 30th puts too much of the cost in 2014, and that's what I'm trying to avoid.
I feel both disappointed and relieved. Is that strange?
I finished The Orphan Master's Son. Wow. What a trippy book. I'll write about it on the 2013 book page. Now I'm going to read a book called Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I'm looking forward to it.
