First and foremost - good luck with your surgery. When you say check-in, is that just for labwork, x-ray, EKG, etc., or do you mean admitted to a room and all? I'm the same as Summerstorm; my hospital was 95 miles/2.5 hours away from home, but I just showed up the day of surgery. I had to do a 72-hour clean out - started on Friday for surgery on Monday, but I'm sure that was just because my system is so slow. Now if it was my son that has Crohn's, a one-day prep would be fine for him. :o)
