    surgery Friday...

    I have a pre-op anesthesia appointment tomorrow and surgery Friday morning (abdominal wall repairs). I won't know how extensive until I wake up. The transplant team is doing the surgery. Hey! Maybe they will find a spare kidney lying around and drop one in while they have the hood open...well...it could happen. I should be home Saturday afternoon, if all goes well. Stay alert. Stay safe.

    Good Luck Tom...It will all go like a Box Of Birds and you'll be back with us again afore you know it.

    Hey...have the surgeons construct you a built in "Living Holster" if there is any loose skin left over.
    T.I.W.B. Totally Internal Waist Band Holster.
    Hey...on a more serious note.
    Good Luck To You.

    Good luck Tom, tell 'em to check the bottom shelf of the fridge way in back for that spare kidney they forgot about!
