Learned today that I have surgery coming up. On Jan. 14 of 2020 I go into the hospital to prepare for the actual cutting on Jan. 16th. My urologist wants to make sure I've taken the antibiotic, and that I haven't had anything to eat or drink since midnight the morning of the 16th. But before then I get to fret and fuss.
Fortunately it's being done at UCSD Health, which has a good reputation, and the last time I was there I was shown professionalism in my treatment. The same sort of professionalism Jolly Blackburn went through recently at his local VA hospital.
So two days to get ready, the surgery, than maybe a couple of days to start on the road to recovery.
But then I may have two more surgeries coming up; one on the veins in the calves of my legs, and another on an artery in my heart. In the latter case it may be for Prinzmetal Angina, and that can require stenting. And all while this is going to The Cheetoh will be going through some times of his own.
And since I can, I'm going to ask you for some help at this time. You can, drop a shekel my way via the donation button below.
