Luckily there was a cancellation for a surgery on Monday, the 3rd, so I was able to be fit in then. I am very happy about this because I would go crazy waiting any longer. I've been ready for this for months and the last two weeks I've been very sick. The good part of all of this is that my mom will be with me for the first few days after surgery and then my brother or dad will come towards the end. I can't even tell you how much of a relief it is to have my mom with me (not that my brother is incompetent) because there are just some things you need your mom for. And this is definitely one of them.
Okay, just wanted to fill everyone in on what's happening. I am sure I'll post something more over the weekend. Happy New Year!
