Okay, the whining is over for now. I just had too much time alone to worry. I am on my way to another hospital where my mother's cousin is currently in surgery. If all goes well, this surgery will prolong her life expectancy from 3 months to 18 months. I will go and sit with her daughter, and be reminded of the many blessings I have and the smallness of my problems. Prayers for my cousin and for her great grandchild who will also be born today will be gratefully accepted.
