I did not have to go to the hospital today.
I did not have to set my alarm clock today.
I did not drive around a crowded parking garage looking for a space, silently cursing the existence of other human beings.
I did not have blood drawn today.
I did not have a chest X-Ray.
I did not have my blood pressure taken.
I did not have to answer questions about pain during chewing or swallowing.
I got a break.
Surgery is a little more than a week away, but today I got to be completely normal.
And that makes today a beautiful day.
See the world all green and blue,
See China right in front of you.
See the bird with the leaf in her mouth,
After the flood all the colors came out.
