Beware the third day

My friend Chris who had breast cancer surgery last week had a bit of a rocky day yesterday, the third day following surgery. She had heard from several people that the "third day" is often the hardest following surgery.

Third days. That's also when houseguests are starting to wear thin, according to conventional wisdom.

Third day in Genesis 1? "Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.  And there was evening, and there was morning-the third day."

Any third day theories you'd like to share?
