oh! delightful care packages arriving from all over the globe.

oh. hello there. lovely to see you again.

so. um. the countdown begins. and we’re completely freaking out (inwardly – this being our last day in the office until the end of september we’re trying to keep it together outwardly for a few more hours).

we are going into surgery on friday morning (arrival 0600 at hospital escorted by the redoubtable and capable and lovely Cheltenham Lady and under-the-knife-and-high-as-a-kite by 0730).

and the most delicious “care packages” have been arriving from all over the globe – both real and virtual – from england, seattle, spain, los angeles, germany, tribeca, sweden and east hampton and beyond…..to add to the lovely books and music and best wishes already in the “apartment-of-confinement” (how ARE we going to cope with not going ANYWHERE for THREE WHOLE WEEKS? especially as, prior to this experience of tobias the tumour/tumor¬†we led a Very JetSet Life)

here are a few pictures we took this morning. our hands were a tiny bit shaky. we’re not in our body and we’re really trying to get there in order to be most helpful.

oh, hell, no we’re not.

we’re just going to Let it Go and Surrender to the whole bloody experience.

maybe a tiny bit of it will be fun.

maybe there will be Beautiful People in the hospital and we can have a tiny flirt.

you know how much we like that, darlings ;-)
