As I mentioned back in my post on August 5th, I'm having surgery on Tuesday (August 24th). I don't think I'll be posting anything until I return home. After I am discharged I plan to stay with my parents who have an apartment in Manhattan for about a week, just in case something happens and I need to get back to the hospital quick (which is also in Manhattan). I hope to be back in my own home after Labor Day weekend. Depending on how I'm feeling, I'll still be checking my emails, Twitter and Facebook through my Blackberry.
I met with the doctor who will be doing the operation yesterday to discuss what he's going to do. He is going to remove that part of the Aorta where the aneurysm is located and replace it with prostetic tubing. I was born with a Bicuspid Aortic Valve but the echocardiograms show that it's working fine, however the doctor may still replace it while he's in there based on how the valve appears and feels. Hopefully it's ok and he can just work on the aneurysm. I won't know for sure until after I wake up to find out what he ended up doing. Either way, it's gotta get done and I'm super anxious for it to be over with already. I must say I felt so much better after I left his office yesterday. He's a very nice doctor with a very nice demeanor and seems to be super-uber confident that he's gonna make me good as new.
So I'm wrapping stuff up this weekend and gonna try to relax for the rest of it. Have a nice weekend everyone and I will be back soon!
