The stomach comes out...tomorrow! (Sing it with me!)

Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
My surgery's tomorrow!
It's only a day away.

So! Tomorrow's the big day. I can't believe it's finally here! I'm a little nervous and a LOT excited. I'm also tired from (I assume) being on clear liquids for the past day, and most of all, ready to get this show on the road.

For a little while today, I thought I wasn't going to get to have surgery after all. I went for my "anesthesia interview" and the nurse practicianer saw something on my stress test report that she said was a problem. She said the report showed that part of my heart was not beating properly, that it looked ischemic -- basically meaning I had blockage in one of my arteries. She and my cardiologist and the technician who did my stress test went back and forth on the phone and via fax for 20 minutes or so, after which they determined that the problem was with the computer printout, not my heart. Phew!

So I suppose that's all for now. See you all on the other side. :)
