So, this morning I preregistered and paid my deductable for the hospital.  I have talked to the surgical nurse and have my pre surgery instructions.  I continue to field and answer a lot of questions from folks who are interested in my welbeing.  I keep trying to cross things off my to do lists — but now that’s mainly work and home stuff to be done before my surgery.  I have some anxiety, but not a lot.  I’m probably as prepared as I can be at this point (without being overprepared — I don’t have my first month’s vitamins ordered, for example).  I’ve talked to enough people who have undergone this (and other) proceedures, some of whom had a rough time, that I feel like I have a sense of what’s coming.  Though I’m sure it’s like having children — you only really understand after you have them.  Ten days and counting.

I’m not sure how much chance I’ll have to blog between now and the surgery.  But I expect to have some time afterwards …
