Surgery scheduled...surprise!

Imagine my shock when I got a call from the pre-admission RN who told me I am scheduled for surgery Monday at 1:00! My doctor's office called while I was in the midst of the interview that is conducted in advance of surgery. My Thursday will be taken up by the PET scan at 8:00, then pre-op testing starting at 1:15. Chest x-ray, EKG, some blood work for sure, discussion with anesthesiologist, instructions to prevent MRSA, etc. etc. etc.

If everything goes as planned, I will spend just one night in the hospital  Haven't done that since 10/6/80!

Sooner is better, less time to stress over all this.


  1. "Battle Station Overland Park" is armed and on station for Monday!!!


  2. As the song says "I'll be there" with my thoughts


  3. It's a long time to be in hospital for you, isn't it. Any way good luck to you. I wish all goes well.
