my mother came in last night and we went to a nice japanese restaurant. i limped around, hopefully for the last time.
got up at 0530 this morning, was at the surgery center at 0615, in the or by 0715. only mishap was that i noticed too late that the nurse wasn't using gloves to insert my iv.
anyway, so they put me out and i woke up in recovery. now my feet are sore but not painfully.
