Preoperative Insomnia

First of all, I really want to apologize for letting three months slide by between posts. That's all I'll say on that subject.

I'm suffering from insomnia caused by the fact I'm facing imminent surgery to remove some excess bone from my foot. I am not nervous, not worried, just awake. So I thought writing this might make me tired, though it's now 4:00 a.m., and I'm due at the hospital in two hours.

I've watched four hours of BYU internet TV, hoping to put something in my mind to ponder while I drifted off to sleep, but that only served to stimulate my brain even more.

I will, of course, succeed in falling asleep about fifteen minutes before the alarm is set to go off. Oh well, I can really sleep later today when I get home after the operation.

By the way, Matt and Kristine have a new baby daughter - more on that after I get some pictures.

So, here I go, signing off and hoping this brief diversion has slowed me down enough to fall asleep for a little while, anyway. More blogging to follow...

I hope all goes well with your surgery. Get some rest.

I hope all went well and you're on the mend.
