I didn't intend the pun in the subject line. But I'm too lazy to change it. It looks llike I I'm having surgery on the first of February, at about 10:30. Given the food restrictions I'll likely need to follow, I'm glad it's during the day. It did hit home more yesterday that this is real. But we're learning a lot of stuff on what can be done to make recovery easier from surgery, so I'll have the right tools to get the job done. More later.
