I am getting ready to have surgery in the 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 look for me then, friends.
