Pre-op Completed

March 29th, 2016

I met with Dr. Helton, my surgeon, and completed all pre-op requirements.  He declared me ‘Fit to Go!’  We are to arrive early Friday, surgery commences at 0820.  It may take up to 10 hours.  I am duly cross matched for possible blood transfusion.  Updates for folks waiting will be issued periodically.

Tomorrow, Wednesday 3/30, I am playing golf at Meadowmeer with 5 regular partners.  Best round ever for All!  This will be my last round for a while.

Sincere THANK YOU, to everyone.  Your prayers, kind thoughts and genuine concern are deeply felt and appreciated.  We’ll continue our conversation post-op.
