Pre-Op Prep

Met with the nurse today that will be at my surgery on Monday to go over the medical history, did the EKG, and blood work for type and match. I’ll meet the anesthesiologist bright and early Monday morning at 6am, or he may call on Sunday night.

Feeling well other than the cough and some chest congestion. Shouldn’t be a factor. Of course, a bit apprehensive about the days after the surgery, but not much I can do but go through it. I’ll mentally focus on the fact that a month from now I’ll be much better and this will all be behind me.

Going over to Jim and Nancy’s tomorrow for turkey day. Norma is going to stop by on Saturday for a visit. And I’ll see Steve and Joni for dinner on Saturday, and Gordon on Sunday for breakfast and our last motorcycle ride for awhile.




  1. Thanks for the update on your surgery. Wishing you the best on Monday.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Thanks Darlene. I was thinking of you earlier this evening, so it’s nice to see the message from you. I hope you and Tim have a good Thanksgiving as well. Take care,Ken

  3. I’ll be thinking happy and healthy thoughts for you Ken.
