Hospiblogging, Part 1

We're here at the hospital, where the First Mate has checked in and rests comfortably in a private room -- a rare treat at the Fairview University Medical Center. We're waiting for some pre-op tests to begin, like EKGs and perhaps an X-ray prior to surgery. The doctor told us that a 10 PM surgical time is a possibility, but that it may more likely be tomorrow morning before the transplant. If that's the case, I may elect to get a cot and stay overnight; we have freezing rain up here and I don't think I'd like to chance the drive home and then back again early in the morning.

I tried connecting to the U's wireless network, but the reception was too dicey in the room. Fortunately, a NetSurf signal comes in strong, so I signed up for a month's access to their network. It goes for $29.95 per month, and I'll be interested in seeing how many other places it goes. At any rate, I'm getting almost 90% signal strength up here, so hospiblogging will definitely work.

Just in case I get bored, I have some material I've promised to review and promote, and of course my copy of Hugh Hewitt's Blog to re-read.
