Today was just morning milking & afternoon feeding here on the farm. The rest of the day was spent at my surgeon's office, and picking up some Christmas items before time runs out.
Doc has me scheduled for 12/29 to remove the arterial filter via my neck's jugular vein. Hmmm...just saying "jugular" gives me the willies! Oh well, it's routine for him, so doesn't matter what I think. I do like my surgeon very much. Very personable & has a good sense of humor. Before that, on the 18th, I have a breathing test at the hospital to test my lung performance, which I think is fine at this point.
My only real complaint at this point is the arthritic pain that really affects my output. But I do have to stop my blood thinner 3 days ahead of surgery, and that isn't a good feeling, but a must for messing around my jugular!
I don't know if you missed your appointment or not, but today is the 18th of December. I will be PRAYING for you on the 29th, outpatient or not, it's still surgery.
