Post Here I go!

Well off to surgery at 0530 tomorrow. I am scared stiff. Hope to get something to calm me down as soon as I sign the papers and get an IV. Don't know when I'll be back on the board. Thanks for your support and and Prayers. Talk to you soon.

Best of luck BDW You'll do fine. Think about how much better you'll feel and all the ice cream you'll get to eat. You'll be suprised, but the jitters will wane.

Please let us know how you make out.

BDW,
I'm here thinking about you and just knowing it will all go well. And you know we're all here wishing we could hold your hand to calm your jitters. You take care, and we'll see you back in a few days.
