Monday, May 5, 2014, will be my surgery date. It's scheduled for 6:30 a.m. I get to be there at 5:00 a.m. I would just as soon wish it were tomorrow now that I know that I will have it. I have gotten lots of well wishes, which I do truly appreciate, and promises of prayers, which I appreciate all the more. A few folks have shared with me their stories of open heart surgery and the importance of having a heart pillow, oh yes, and a recliner to sleep in.
