I've been slowly stocking up on the things that I'll need for my pre- and post-surgery life. Which means getting rid of the alcohol to make room for better choices (but as you can see, not the glasses. Or the brandy. But that's for cooking. I swear.):
I report to the hospital at 6am on Monday for the scope. I spoke to a nurse on the phone today who took my medical history "to speed things up in the morning." Clearly, she doesn't want to be awake at 6am any more than I do.
Things are progressing!
