Hope all goes well, finally get the little bugger out and move on with life. I'm staying positive with some reservation obviously until I hear from the doctor after the procedure.

LinnRyan,

Best wishes for the surgery. Good luck with the liquid plumber that cleans you out. It will take a few days to feel better, but that goes with the territory.

Hi Linn,

In 48 hours tomorrow will be yesterday and you will have decades of tomorrows to look forward to, you are going to be fine. The first week or two post-op will be a little rough as your body and it's systems recover, but that is a small price to pay in the long run. In time the memories from all of this will fade and life will return to "normal" again. My thoughts and prayers will be with you tomorrow.

Good luck and God speed,

Gary

Thanks to both of you for making this journey a bit easier. I hope to inspire the same way everyone on this site as when this is all behind me. I'll keep you posted. Best news I had yesterday is she said if all goes well I could probably go home in 24-48 hours yippee 24 would be awesome. But I know the drill you have to meet their criteria before they let you go.

Linn,

You are not going to feel like going home after 24 hours. So relax.

Best wishes,
