Like a Patient Etherized Upon a Table*


I'm having surgery tomorrow.

I would be lying if I said I wasn't freaked out.

Because...I'm freaked out.

Also, I'm kind of scared. Of what, exactly, I cannot put my finger one. But, there you go. I'm scared.

Hopefully it will be a nice, routine, boring surgery that would totally not get the residents on Grey's Anatomy excited. That's what I'm hoping for - boring, routine, and also, LAPROSCOPIC. I am really, really hoping for laproscopic, because otherwise, they have to slice my abdomen open, and that will suck.

If the surgery can be done laproscopically, I can go home after one or two nights and go back to work in two to three weeks.

Otherwise, the recovery is a lot longer.

If you are awake at 7:30 Eastern Time tomorrow morning...and can spare a minute to send good, routine, laproscopic thoughts my way...please do.

Bloglines is evil and didn't tell me you had a post up! But I am praying for you right now, thinking LAPROSCOPIC! Hopefully the surgery is over and you are kicking back in a recovery room feeling no pain.
Take care, friend.
