Signing Off For A Bit

Tomorrow's the big day. I'm nervous, but looking forward to getting it over with. We have to be at the hospital at 5:15am, off to the OR by 7:15, surgery should start by 8:30 and I should be done by 5pm. From there, I sleep and sleep and sleep.

I spoke to Stephanie again last night. She's right in the middle of radiation and chemo and feeling like crap. She said the surgery was very easy compared to how she feels now. That's exactly what I thought last time so I'm hoping I agree with her this go round. She said they had her on so many meds that when she did wake up (they kept her in a coma for a week) she felt great. Her speech is perfect and she gives me hope.

Jake may keep my blog up while I'm out so be looking for him. He's a much better writer than I am so I hope you're not too sad when I'm back on-line. I'm sure he'll be entertaining!

Off to eat lots of fattening foods before my medically induced fast.
