Waking up around 11 a.m.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Blueberries, Maple Syrup, and Kefir. Earl Grey Tea.

I hurry to eat breakfast and such so I can get to the Sentara hospital in Norfolk where Ana just finished up her ear surgery. I’ve never been to this hospital before – it’s like an amusement park with so many people walking around, signs pointing you in all kinds of directions. I finally make it up to the third floor. Her mom and auntie Nellie are here too. She looks out of it but in good spirits. It’s gonna be a process recovering but I’m glad she finally got something done with her ear.

I continue driving on back to VB. I pick up some pastries from Prosperity and Coffee from Three Ships. Scarfing down an Egg Biscuit at the house then packing up my car with bass gear.

At The Sandler Center Ladada is performing a special show for Paul Shugrue’s Out of the Box emerging artists series. We’re supposed to play two long sets with an interview in between – it really is an ultimate song list on our part, almost all the songs in our catalog. It’s a great turnout with a bunch of our friends and new faces. Right in front of the stage is a VIP section with a very receptive older crowd.

Back home. My legs are very tired from standing forever. I reconvene with Ana in her bedroom. She’s been chillin’ out and resting. She still has to keep this Velcro cup around her ear for a few days with cotton balls in it that need to be changed regularly. I surprise her with Fred Armisen tickets – she’s thrilled!

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
