Check in time for me is 6:45 am. And here I am at 10:30 pm drinking water. I'm supposed to drink 2 liters of fluid between 8pm and midnight and it takes a long time to do that. Plus I'm not really worried about sleeping; after all that liquid, who will be able to stay in bed?
Surgery is imminent, we are ready. There are some nerves and worry about the aftermath of the surgery but on the whole I'm very optimistic and ready to be done. The medical and surgical teams are great, the hospital is excellent, we are in good hands.
Today was cold and sunny and we got to go for a walk. Life is good and going to be better. I appreciate all the support and encouragement we've received and the help we'll get for the next couple of weeks. See you on the flip side!
