Operation Chain Saw Therapy

We officially have a code name for the surgery tomorrow. It's called "operation chain saw therapy". I don't know for sure if it involves a chain saw, but we're going to call it this unless someone thinks of a more humorous name for it. I can't eat after midnight, but can, apparently, have water, apple juice or Seven-up until 7 AM. That seems strange to me if we're talking about general anesthesia. Any thoughts?

I got the impression from the hospital web site that laptops/cell phones aren't allowed in the hospital. This means I will be reading hardcopy Braille tommorrow if I actually feel like reading, though that's pretty unlikely since when I described the surgery at Monday's pre-op exam, the nurse said "ouch!".

The RSD spreading or getting worse is still the main concern for me. I haven't been able to find out what the statistics are on such things happening, but I know the doctor is very concerned about it. I am too; I really don't want the RSD to get worse.

The control freak in me hates the not knowing and waiting part of this. The perfectionist in me hates getting done with school so early because I want to know what my grades are.
