Yesterday, while I was waiting for an important appointment at an important Boston hospital, I saw this important book:
After I saw that important book, I saw my important cardiologist Dr. Deeb Salem, who thought it important to tell me about two important people fainting when observing open heart surgery. It’s probably important for me to share now that I’m having important open heart surgery in four days at the important Mayo Clinic in important Rochester, Minnesota. That surgery is so important to me that I asked for an important hug from the important Dr. Salem yesterday for the first time in our important 34-year doctor/patient relationship. I also told Dr. Salem that I’m so important to his important colleague and fellow cardiologist Dr. Mark Estes that Dr. Estes had promised to importantly greet me with his important medical team at Boston’s important airport when I return in two weeks from my important surgery.
Then I went back to my important job at another important Boston hospital, where many important people wished me well.
Here are more of my important shots from yesterday:
It’s important to note that those last two important shots include important lyrics from the important musical, Hamilton. Here‘s the important Hamilton number “(I Am Not Throwing Away) My Shot.”
Another important fact in today’s important post: last night I gave myself my first important injection of twice-daily anti-coagulant before my important surgery …
… and then I threw away my shot.
What’s important, here and now, to you?
Gratitude is important to me, so ….
Stay “young, scrappy and hungry”, Ann. 💕 We’re all with you for this important journey.
