Surgery date...1/21/2020. Last of my pre-admittance procedures will be done today. Have had a couple of 'freak-out' moments, but then I remember that today's techniques are SOOO different from those 40 years ago. We have a great team of physicians, and great support, and looking forward to being on the other side of this. Positive point: I will NOT have to drive anywhere in the snow this winter.
