Spent the entire morning taking my pre-surgery testing. EKG, Cat Scan, X-Rays, Blood tests, Covid test, Vein mapping, Carotid artery test, you name it. Came home with all the instructions and materials needed for tomorrow’s bypass surgery and bam, get a phone call at 3pm. It’s postponed till the 18th and worse yet I have to take all those tests over again.
My surgeon it seems is tied up with two overnight heart transplants. Pretty hard to argue with that and hoping the recipients make it through their procedures and thrive.
While I was dreading the procedure I was also finally dealing with the reality of it all and anxious to get on with it. Now? I have another week to think about it and ponder the downside to getting old. Onward and upward! I think?
PS: Thanks to all of you who emailed and called to wish me well. I appreciate it and will carry those wishes with me into next week!
