Hi everyone, thankyou all for your thoughts , prayers,hugs, and kind words, my op is tomorrow at 1.30, today my family all came around and we had a real nice afternoon, yesterday my lawn bowls club put on a crayfish and prawn lunch, they all wished me luck, would not let me buy a drink, and made the day really pleasant, tonight my wife Anna has made me a nice dinner, and we are having a bottle of good wine with it.
So I am all prepared, allthough a little apprehensive, and God willing all goes well, thanks again for everything.
