the day after tomorrow...

I'll be on the other side! My surgery is scheduled for 11am on Wednesday. I had my pre-op phone interview with Swedish Hospital this afternoon, and it sounds like my surgery will only be 3-4 hours? Sweetness.

The bad news? My computer wasn't able to be fixed yesterday so our friend has to wipe it completely clean and re-install the operating system on it. So not only am I running Safari for all internet access on a PC, but I can't upload any pictures from my camera (among many, many other things). I have great ER bruise pictures, surgical hook pictures, my post-half-marathon picture, and of course will be taking the obligatory pre-op photos - I just won't be able to upload any photos until after next weekend, when our friend can come over and fix it. I'll add photos as soon as I can, though. And my friend Heidi will (hopefully) be updating my blog after I come out of surgery since I won't be out of the hospital until Thursday sometime.

I feel like I'm forgetting something major in the big scheme of things. I'm not sure what it could be so I'm not concerning myself TOO much, but it's slightly unnerving. Maybe it's nerves - I'm still not very nervous, though feel like I should be.

My nerves didn't hit til my head hit the pillow the night before... Speaking from a 6 week post-op perspective, time flies and this surgery is so worth it! YAYY SO EXCITING!
