I can't believe this year is almost over. Rich remarked that in two days the days will start getting longer again. Yay! I hate driving to work and back in the dark!

Secret Santa Day #2 and Dad
Well, my dad had surgery last night. A surgery that was scheduled for 4:00 and actually happened at 8:45. Guess they had a lot of emergency surgeries that day! Anyway, they removed his gallbladder. The surgeon said it was the worst he's ever seen. Why he hasn't been in agonizing pain is beyond me. They could not close up the area that the gallbladder is attached, due to too much pus or something so he has a drainage tube in. He'll be in the hospital for at least two more days, then he wants to just go home and be by himself for a day or two. I'm not sure that's such a good idea. He's still pretty weak and I am afraid he will fall or something. Oh well, I'll let my brothers argue with him. I'm sure he'll end up at his girlfriends anway! She wants him to come there.
