I am number 1 with a bullet on the head drilling list. That means if someone drops off the list for ANY REASON, I will be called. The doctor I talked to in SF said people drop out all hte time; family/housing problems, transportation problems, they have a cold, they cut themselves...all kinds of reasons, big and small.
So I talked to Jennifer, who explained all of the calling, arriving, checking in stuff.
Then I talked briefly to my doctor who sounded like a 10 year old. He explained a little about what he was going to do (drill a hole in my head and then rummage about, like me looking for change in the bottom of my handbag). MY real concern was whether "they" were going to shave my head (maybe, maybe no---sometimes yes, sometimes partly, sometimes not). I'm not sure I want to hand my life over to a guy who can;t make a simple decision about shaving my head.
Obviously, he is NOT in touch with what is of prime importance to ME.
So here's hoping I get a call on Monday or Thursday. It's a six hour surgery, so I should get a lot of rest and if all goes well, I'll be home bald head and all by my birthday.
