Can you believe it's finally here?

I can't.

I can't believe that by this time tomorrow night, this whole nightmare with my back will - hopefully - be over.

Amazing.

I check in the hospital @ 6a.m. tomorrow; surgery is scheduled for 7:30a.m.

Wow.

Here's the "fun" part of my day today. I had my pre-op tests yesterday & was told to call today between 1-4pm for the final time for my surgery. So i call.

My name is not on the surgery roster.

What the...

Nope. I'm not on the list for surgery. "Call us after 3" they say.

I call again. Nope. No one knows anything.

Am i cursed? I really need to NOT have this kind of stress. Sheesh.

So i called my doctor after calling the hospital AGAIN.

The doctors office apologizes most profusly. They also acknowledge that this kind of stress i don't need. But i am scheduled for tomorrow @ 7:30a.m.

No doubt.

So, by this time tomorrow i'll be vicadened outta my gourd & won't care a fig about anything.

Except that it's over.

I'll be back in a few weeks. Peace out!
