New Surgery Date

Posted Monday, May 5, 2008, at 6:10 PM

I was informed late this morning my cardiac surgtery has been moved back one week to Thursday, May 15.

While I don't like the delay after getting mentally ready for surgery this Thursday there is one part I like.

The surgery on May 15 will be the first of the day at 7 a.m. while a 12:30 p.m. start time had been set for this Thursday.

Sorry to bother all of you again. Thanks to all of you.

It is not bother. I know that we are all glad to hear the update. First surgeries in the morning are the best time---I worked at St. Thomas for many years and early am are the prime spot.

Don't say or think it is a bother..I was just siting at my home last nite and thinking about how you were doing..you are right 7am is alot better than 12:30..When I had my 1st surgery for Breast Cancer in 2000 it was not until 3pm and by the time they came in there to get me I was a RECK and I did not want to go..I had sat there worring until I was not ready to have it done by then..plus i wanted something to eat and drink since i had not had anything since midnite...Going 1st thing is the best way to go...You are in my thoughts and prayers and your family also...Keep us up-dated...
