I can no longer avoid the knife.

It's true. I have scheduled my surgery. Wednesday February 4th, at o'dark-thirty. (That just means I will have to be there really early in the morning.) At Alta-View Hospital on 9400 S and 1300 E. The doctor I was referred to only operates on Mondays and Wednesdays, so my choices were limited. But he was a great guy at the consultation. He told me everything that was going to happen, and all the medication he would give me, and all the possible side effects. He even drew me pictures. Which Nik refuses to look at. I would say that I am a lot more at ease now that I know what is going to happen.

Thanks to everyone who has offered their well-wishes and prayers. I will continue to take them.

Let me know if you guys need ANYTHING! And I will talk to the Relief Society, let them know what is going on and get you meals coming in. Just a few questions, WHEN would you like meals to start coming in and tell me exactly what the food restrictions are (raw onions, tomato sauce and fruits are all no-no's. What else?). Good luck with everything. I hope this fixes your stomach problems!

You'll feel so much better when it's all over . . . seriously, I had mine done on Friday and we had Annie blessed that Sunday and had the party afterwards. I mean, I crashed for several hours once it was all over, but I really felt pretty good . . .
