1) The scheduling secretary called this afternoon to say that she's still working on the date. She doesn't have anything yet but will call me as soon as she finds out. While it would be nice to have the date now, I wasn't expecting to hear from her today. It's nice to know that she's working on it.
2) My niece R has agreed to come out and help me after the surgery! This is a huge relief. My mother will also be coming but I was afraid that Cha would be too much of a handful for her. (She's too much of a handful for me!) It will be nice to be surrounded by family.
