I am so nervous! Tomorrow at 12:40pm is my surgery. (Late I know!)

The pre surgery checklist on this website has been very helpful. I am going to go to the grocery store again today and get some more things.

That's pretty much it... Just wanted to let you know.

  • All the best tomorrow Donna! We will be thinking of you.

    Try to do something special for yourself today, a little pampering helps the day before surgery.

    We will be waiting for an update from you when you are able.
