Just a quick update... I am seeing the surgeon tomorrow, and I'll ask him to postpone any tests and things until the middle of next week. This weekend I am flying to Chicago to surprise my dad for his birthday! The trip was all arranged by my brother and sister-in-law. I'm planning on cooking my dad a big celebration meal on Sunday.
I'm feeling okay, not great, but still okay. I can't wait until all this medical stuff is done and I feel really good again.
