It’s a beautiful, sunny day here in PDX. No complaints.
I’m currently prepping for tomorrow’s surgery, which means clear liquids only and some other, nastier things. My procedure will be at St. Vincent Hospital and will take place at about 1pm tomorrow, February 19.
It is expected that I will stay in the hospital for anywhere from a very optimistic two days to less optimistic five days. It will be an adventure, for sure.
I had my last solid meal last night. Now I’m starving, and reflecting on how long it is going to be until I eat again. It’s a strange thought, and one without a clear answer.
If you are interested in following my progress, I have asked Mr. Pencil, my beloved husband (a.k.a. David) to post a few updates here while I am incapacitated.
I understand that St. Vincent’s visiting hours are “liberal,” but I’m not sure when I’ll feel up to having visitors. Soon, I hope!
