Long Day

I slept fitfully, needing to get up rather early to get my dad to the hospital for routine but serious surgery. Fortunately, the procedure went well, and when I visited him this evening he seemed in good condition and even in relatively good spirits, despite being hooked up to various devices, and despite being in an area where machines regularly break into attention-getting chirping.

It's hard to feel serenely at peace
when gizmos seem to beep without cease.
