Sophia had minor surgery yesterday. She’s doing OK. But it was one stressful day. Not only do I hate sitting in waiting rooms, not knowing what is going on, but the CNN coverage of the Virginia Tech shootings was on TV, and I felt faint.
As Sophia was in pre-op, she was reading my blog on her cell phone. One of the nurses asked her what she was reading.
“Neil’s blog,” said Sophia.
“What’s a blog?” asked the nurse.
“It’s a personal journal,” said another nurse.
“Not always,” said Sophia. “Neil writes about different things. He even wrote about Cedars Sinai.”
Sophia showed her the post where I criticized the hospital for poor signage on the Saperstein Tower.
Later, as Sophia was drifting off from general aenesthesia, the last thing she remembers hearing from underneath the mask was the aenesthesiologist telling the others that “We better do a good job or we’ll all end up on this guy’s blog tomorrow!”
You did good work, Cedars-Sinai. Behold the Power of the Blog!
Send regards to Sophia.
