Seven Days to Love by Robert Daviau
Excerpt from Chapter Twelve – “SURGERY”:
Lance had been told that the surgery would last about six
hours. Dr. Kantor had indicated that anything less than
two would mean the surgeons hadn’t dare touch the tumor,
guaranteeing Vicki certain death. Of course, six hours would
mean that the surgeons were going into vital places that might
lead to permanent damage. That thought terrorized Lance, as
it had Vicki.
Lance went to the cafeteria for a cup of coffee. It was not
decaf, and the last thing he needed was a stimulant. He read
all the magazines there—exactly two—and they were a year
old. He wondered why medical facilities could never afford
reading material for those in the waiting room.
