I've been cleared for surgery which is on Wednesday the 6th.

My pre-op appointment with the surgeon and anesthesia went well so the surgery is a go.

The Pneumonia I had is long gone and my lungs are clear although I am still dealing with some shortness of breath but that's due to my asthma and is not thought to be an issue.

I am a bit nervous about this whole thing but I've decided to go through with it.

I'm hopeful everything will go well.

Wish me luck :-)

Forgot to mention that the surgery is to correct a Femoral Acetabular Impingement in my Rt Hip.
