Group,

I am getting ready to have surgery in the AM.....in the middle of pre-op antibiotics and colon cleaning. When I signed on M.Kat, Lawink, Spinbiscuit, 56pontiac, swimom, wicket, and Bluebird had already been on, showing their love and concern. Bless your collective hearts. Man, the last couple of weeks have been more than hectic.....making sure everything in my division at the college (I am a division chair and instructor) are taken care of, but I think everything is good to go.

Surgery tomorrow, probably home Tuesday or Wed....so look for me then, friends.

A lot of men have said the day before surgery, "the colon cleaning" was worse than anything else, my husband is one of them!  We just wanted to wish you good luck tomorrow and please know that our thoughts and prayers will be with you.
 
Sincerely,
