Hi George,
Good Luck to you tomorrow morning; you'll be just fine. Don't be disappointed if you can't remember having the surgery because it's over before you know it. I can't remember anything except a "hello" and then a "awake?" Post us when you feel up to it, and let us know how you're doing.

Someone told me prior to my surgery that the biopsies were worse that the surgery. You know what, he was right! Good luck!
