    Ha! Yeah, let me know all the skinny on everything about it. I'd love to hear it. I'm already kinda nervous - but I'll certainly be glad when its over. I can't imagine being there for week maybe ten days. Gosh, that's long time. I'm hoping for shorter. But, please let me know anything you can. Thanks. I sure appreciate it.

    Nope, I go for my preop testing on May 26th, but my surgery date isn't until July. I'm hoping they are able to move me up. I've talked to Kelly many times.
