    Re: Myectomy Canceled

    Hi All,

    Looks like everything's a go for tomorrow. Woo hoo!

    I'll be reporting in at the hospital at 5:00 am, so the 'results' should be in pretty early in the day. I know Cousin Laura will do a good job letting you all know what's going on. I'm still not very nervous at all... but i'm sure it will hit me as they're wheeling me into the operating room screaming my bloody head off! LoL. Actually, i think i'm just so excited about having the surgery, i may end up keeping my cool throughout

    Lisa, i left the phone number for the guesthouse with Kelly, so if ya wanna call and chat tonight (or anyone else for that matter) i'm in room 307. I can pretty much guarantee you i won't be sleeping at all. But hey, i have all day tomorrow to do that, right? I have the easy job here... all i have to do is lay on a table, fall asleep, and a couple seconds later (for me at least) it'll all be over.

    Just think, by tomorrow night at this time i may already be out of ICU and on the road to recovery!

    Thanks to everyone, you've all been great.

    Jim

      Dear Jim,

      Great news!

      I, and I am sure a host of others, will be praying for a successful surgery with a quick and easy recovery!

          Jim ... sorry to hear about your delay. I guess I was lucky. Everything went as planned. I got my myectomy, spent 11 days at Cleveland and now I'm home recovering. Things will work out for the good. Keep beliving and stay strong...

            Great news on the surgery. I loved the cheesecake at the deli and the corn chowder at the bakery. That was one of the few things I felt like eating after my surgery.

            Good luck and keep us posted.
