Facing The Knife Before The Turkey

On his Slice blog, Paul Turner offers this scenario:

I know someone scheduled to have an operation tomorrow afternoon. She has been told it will start at about 3:30. Great, she said. The medical team will be tired and thinking about everything they need to do to get ready for Thanksgiving. So…is she paranoid or would you think exactly the same thing? 

Question: Would you want to have surgery the afternoon before a holiday?
