Spoke to the surgeon yesterday and looks like everything is set up for next Wednesday. He said the whole procedure takes about 30 minutes. I will be off my feet for 2 days. My husband is gonna take off a couple of days to help me. Plan on making some meals ahead of time so he won't have to cook. I am not as nervous as I was, just looking foreward to getting it all over with.

Sending the best wishes for your surgery and recovery to be a snap. It is excellent that you're less nervous now. Keep building on that feeling of calm conviction that this is the right thing to do and will go well. *hugs*
