I received a call from the surgeon's secretary this morning informing that they have scheduled my first operation on March 11, 2009, this Wednesday. It is sooner than I expected but I guess the sooner the better. Like it or not, I'd have to be there at 7.30am as I'm second on the list. I cannot eat or drink anything from midnight. As we are now without a car, Sanya has kindly offered to take me to the hospital.
I have also informed my supervisor regarding this and of course he felt really sorry for me and offered anything he could do to help. He is really supportive and I'm really thankful for it. We have been thinking of study suspension but I need to find out about something first. I would also have to write to my employer and sponsor about this.
If any of you is watching 'Heroes', how I wish I'd be like Hiro Nakamura who can stop time and alter whatever has happened. Deep in my heart I wish that I could turn back the clock and correct this. But I believe whatever happens, there will be a blessing in disguise...
