[cancer] Surgery details

Spent the afternoon at OHSU. As calendula_witch explains, we now have a schedule for tomorrow. I’m to be at surgical admitting at 6 am. Surgery is scheduled for 7:30 am. It ought to last three to four hours. I’ll then spend a few hours in recovery before being transferred to ICU for overnight.

Friday I should be transferred to a regular bed, and I’ll be able to have visitors. If things go well, I’ll be discharged Monday. I will be interested in visitors once I’m out of ICU. Watch this space or calendula_witch’s blog for details.

Meanwhile, tonight I have a colonic purge and a liquid diet. Because I know how to party.
