Tuesdays with Obi-Wan

Obi-Wan is still in the hospital. Tomorrow (Monday the 31st) is a big day. His doctor along with some other specialist is supposed to come in and visit him. Both Obi-Wan and I suspect that amputation is the item slated for discussion. But we don't know for sure.

With Obi-Wan's permission, I plan to be present if possible. Unfortunately, doctors never give you a ballpark time frame of their visit in a hospital room. All you ever know is the day. It could be 6am or 11pm. But Obi-Wan's pretty sure it'll be in the morning, so I'm going to try to get there about 8 and serve as a second set of ears and ask any questions that Obi-Wan may forget to ask.

Of course...this visit could be a simple check-over and release. We don't know yet.

I cannot imagine the suspense he has laying in a hospital bed all weekend awaiting this "meeting". But he seems relaxed anyway.


In a semi-related note...

Agent Wife and I watched a DVD called "Tuesdays with Morrie".

I wouldn't recommend it if you hate made-for-TV movies with predictable plots and Oprah's thumbs-up endorsement.

This was based on some popular book which was based on a true story. Go figure.

But much of the movie was almost identical to my friendship with Obi-Wan.

I could identify with the young character's progression throughout the story. Weird.
