Brother Sonny, don't like a silly sink leak break the peace and calm you were starting to have. Not apples to apples here. In the next 48 hours, your feelings and emotions will go back and forth like the proverbial yo yo, but in your heart of heart, you know you are doing the right thing for you. Plus, you have this group of goons back here (myself a goon too!) all rooting for you, praying for you, and just waiting for you to come to in the recovery room and get to the other side. So keep yourself busy, and if some of us clowns amuse you, laugh.
Sometimes there can be humor in the darkest moments, I think we try to find it here too. Yeah, there's a lot of serious stuff going on here, but in our daily lives, there are funny moments. THink that's the way it's meant to be.
Get some rest brother, you got a flight ahead of you. On surgery day, everything will take place like a row of dominoes lined up, and before you know it, it will be over.
We are with you.
