Here is the latest news:
I will be having laparoscopic surgery, using a robot similar to the one pictured above, on May 13th. It's a Thursday, so hopefully things will work out well. The procedure is expected to take 1 1/2 hours.
I will be staying overnight for observation before going home on Friday, probably Friday morning. I'm planning on staying at my own home, and not my Mother's home, although we'll see how well I'm doing when I leave the hospital before anything is set in stone.
The down time for this is about 1 week.
This Friday I have a pre-surgical visit with a nurse to go over what to expect and what I will and will not be able to do following the surgery. I'm assuming running a marathon will be somewhere on the list. LOL.
I'm looking forward to this being over and being able to move on with life, although the thought of going under the knife and staying in a hospital isn't exactly comforting to me.
Many thanks for the continued good thoughts and prayers on my behalf, they have been very much appreciated.
