    Procedure or Surgery

    other than the fear of the unknown, it was a smooth process, all things considered. the only glitch was that we were told for my husband to drink water before the procedure by one office, and it was not so at the surgery center. had to wait over an hour after scheduled appt. to have the procedure done. a minor inconvience, but it sure can play on your nerves.

    Procedure or Surgery

    scheduled to have the surgery april 12th. was diagnosed back in january. it has been hard on the nerves to wait this long, and your mind loves to play games when you least expect it. emotions have settled down somewhat and we can go about our dailey lives, although i must admit that the diagnosis and surgery are never far from our minds. would love to hear from others on how they are coping.
