Cancer update

Well, friends, I go into surgery first thing Monday morning (9/14).  Wish me luck.

I thought I'd mention that I DO NOT want visitors at the hospital.  First of all, I'll be doped to the gills.  Second, what with all the IVs, tubes, catheters, bags and pumps, I'll have more attachments than a vacuum cleaner; I can't imagine making light conversation under those conditions.

Also, I do not want flowers.  Maybe I'm just a prude, but severed sex organs used for decoration sort of put me off.

If anyone is really interested, write to pryder , who will of course know what's going on.  If all goes well, I should be home by Saturday Sept 19, and he can tell you if I'm feeling social or not at that time.

I'm hoping my next entry in LJ will be more cheerful.  I know this one is not my usual style. Please forgive.
