Been awhile since I've blogged but Kay has done a great job. Thanks for the cards, calls, emails, blog comments. They're great to read.
Looking forward, 11 days to go until surgery if we stay on course. They'll be a 10 day hospital stay, then back to KC if all goes well.
Dr Nichols is a master at what he does. You can tell by the way he wraps himself around every detail of the surgery. It was a real treat to listen to the various possibilities we could run into. It made me feel more secure.
I remain grateful for the things I do have, the people, the home, the periods of serenity. Sometimes I feel like I'm watching the second hand on the clock. But if I can stay focused that this is just another day and it will come to an end and I'm one day closer to surgery, then I can settle down and do whatever is next.
