The Day Before Surgery

Today is Thursday. Tomorrow is the big day. I am really scared about the surgery and I don't really know why.

I guess it is because all the other surgeries I have had in the past 40 years have been outpatient, where I know I go around 8:00AM and I am home that afternoon. Also, I know on this one, they are looking for something serious. It is not just "fix the tendon, and stitch him up". With all of this, I am just nervous to go under the anesthesia. I keep thinking I won't be returning.

I stop eating tonight about 9:00, playing it safe. Kim and I have to get up at 4:00 AM to drive to Emory to be there by 6:00AM. Mom and dad are going too, in their own car. My surgery is scheduled for around 8:30.

I am nervous.
