Thank you! I am praying all goes as planned with no surprises.
Our doc should come out and talk to dh after the surgery and let him know everything. It will be such a relief for dh to know it's over and all went well.
I haven't set up a followup yet. And come to think of it, he didn't mention it yesterday. But, he did talk to us a bit about down the road, what next after we clear out the cobwebs, so to speak. (My words, not his)
