All of my scheduled pre-op tests are now behind me:
...I got to breathe in a tube in a glass enclosed closet;
...have what felt like a nail pounded into my wrist to connect an IV;
...AND down a root beer float while nuclear drugs simulated my running on a treadmill - a great way to exercise!
Now we wait for the test results and hopefully a scheduled date for surgery.
Happy Valentine's Day to all! Next stop: the Operating Room.
