Here Goes

I went for my pre-op appointment this afternoon. Dr. Howard is going to try to make both sides of my back look the same. Cosmetic for one side and eliminating a point of infection for the other. I must admit the left side has begun to hurt most of the time.
Surgery again! I explained the problem a few blogs ago (May 1) and decided it was time to get it fixed. Maybe he will remove a pound or two. LOL. I doubt it but I know it will look better. I had Vince take a picture today so that I could compare the appearance in a couple of weeks.
I will be weighed in the morning at the Surgical Tower. We have to get there at 6 AM. Surgery at 7:30 AM and it will take about two hours. If all goes well, we can drive home in the afternoon. Do I sound excited? I always grow anxious at about this point. Vince says I will probably hold up the anesthesiologist with a call on my Blackberry. I don't think so.

I know you'll do fine. My thoughts are with you this morning. See you tomorrow if you're feeling up to it.

I know it's going to be good and you'll get that back fixed up right as rain.

Hugs and prayers...
