'Twas the night before sleeving...

Rate this Entry
...and all through (the cleaned house), not a creature was stirring, not even the cat, who has been checked-in at his 5 star resort for uppity Siameses.

With the time difference, I will be done by the time you guys are heading home from the office and settling down for the night. Now that the operation is less then 8 hours away, I have new found respect for all of you who travel to have this procedure done. Those of you who do it without the language skills and alone are in a class of your own.

As you know, I've been fortunate not to have to endure a pre-op diet. So today I had my last supper. Actually is was a lunch with my friends at a favourite restaurant of ours. It was a fitting way to mark the occasion. I've had nothing since 2.30pm except a glass of water or two. I've had one of my 2 anti bacterial showers, damn stuff is so drying that I'm itchy a little now - another to be done tomorrow morning before I walk the block to the hospital.

Met the anaesthetist - perfect. He is serious, but kind and very polite and kinda nerdy. Couldn't ask for better as I feel very comfortable with him and partnered up with the surgeon I'm confident that I have selected the right team for me.

Ok well I'm starting to waffle, because I'm anxious. Time to set the alarm for 5.30am, get whatever sleep I can and then face my life changing day.
I'm bloody nervous.

Thanks for the support in the lead up to this eventful day. Much appreciated.

    I'm stuck on a plane in Dallas, waiting for the weather to improve. Hopefully I will get to my destination today. I wish I could walk a block to the hospital. Best wishes!
