I just sent my mother back to surgery, and am sitting in a terribly uncomfortable chair in a waiting room, waiting. The good news is that I have a fully charged iPad, a bluetooth keyboard, and there is free coffee. It’s funny how much hospitals have changed since I was a candy striper. It’s funny how much technology has changed since then. In 1985, the only waiting room entertainment you got was an old National Geographic, and me. I think the chairs were more comfortable, though.

For now, I’m going to plug in my headphones and close my eyes.
