I've changed my mind

As I am wont to do, I've changed my mind. I am so completely stressed out at the moment between impending surgery and dealing with dragging my grandma and aunt all over the country to NYC, I determined this afternoon that I need the vibes of my closest friends, so I have sent this address out to a select few. So, if you are one of those few, what you are about to read is for you only. The only non-family that knew about this trip was my boss and Wendy. Please don't share it with a bunch of people, particularly people with whom I might work. The other rule is, as soon as I am able after my surgery, I will send an e-mail out regarding my condition (or my honey can do it for me). If the surgery is not successful, I do not want to be comforted, and I don't want to discuss it in any way, shape, or form. I need your good energy for the next few days. Please start with the first post below to find the full story as to why.

And now, a random thought from the flight up: Who on earth buys the porn you see on the newstands at the airport?! They always have at least Playboy and Penthouse, yet you never see someone on a plane with the centerfold stretched across the aisle. Perhaps that is one of those things you only see in first class. I certainly would know nothing about that.

And also: I can see the CNN building from the window of our hospital-subsidized apartment here (a fabulous Upper West Side apartment, I might might even call it a de-luxe apartment in the sky). Assuming everything works as planned, by my second or third trip up here I might just be pretty enough to go over there and stalk Anderson Cooper. Craig baby, it has been a nice ride, but I am going to have to leave you for my favorite newshunk. ;-)

Hey, Chris! Way to go! I'm proud of you for having the courage to try again after having been so hurt before. My positive vibes are coming your way! I love you!

You got my positive vibes baby! I am sending them all your way. Let me know if you would be up to a visitor this weekend and I will come in with some succulent vegetarian Food for you!

You have always been someone I have admired and loved for so many reasons. One of those reasons would be your determination and willingness to try your best even when confronted with the hardest of situations. I respect you and your decisions, and I have nothing but positive and loving thoughts to send your way. I'm a better person for having you in my life, and I support you unconditionally. This is a risky and scary thing, but you have never been one to hide from what may be difficult. You go through it and at times struggle, but you always seem to emerge stronger and wiser. You are one of my heroes...or maybe I should say heroines. Anyway, I love you and am there with you in spirit. Now, if someone tries to unneccesarily shave your genitals before the surgery as Maria the San Salvadorian nurse did when I had my gall bladder removed, take it as a compliment and smile. Those nurses need to get their thrills somewhere. I just hope yours is a cute dude with a bubble butt.

Wow, I'm all fahrklempt from your comments! Thank you! Miss MarySusan, I'll be at Roosevelt Hospital on 10th Avenue tomorrow night and Thursday night. We're actually leaving out of town on Saturday. I should be back in the apartment on Friday, so I'll hit you up if I'm feeling up to it.
