Just a quick update. The repair surgery is today, most likely early afternoon. Everything proceeds after that, so I really can't tell you anything more right now. Ideally everything will go well and I'll give you an update tomorrow (I do wish they wouldn't give you the "Oh by the way, you may die from anesthesia" riff). Those of you who have my cell phone number, please do not call tonight or tomorrow. I promise I will get to you! I just can't be answering the phone all the time. Lots of medical techs coming through and the like.
I love you all so much. Thank you again, more than I really can say.
