Tuesday Teasers








Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by
MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

(p. 189)  "WHEN WE WERE INFANTS, Shiva was considered the more delicate: it was his skull that Stone attempted to crush before Hema saved us.  But then Shiva hit all his developmental milestones on time, lifting his head when I did and crawling when it was time to crawl".
Cutting for Stone; Abraham Verghese - excellent story


Sorry, I'm so late in posting this, but I've been running around a lot all day.  Buddy is still at the Vets. He pulled out his cath and got the plastic cone off during the night. (The staff said that is something that rarely happens...but Buddy mastered it). They had to reinsert the cath and leave it in for 24 hours and then see if he can pee on his own. He was blocked and they had a tough time inserting the cath. Poor little guy. I should get an update around noon tommorrow :(
