I'm going for my brain transplant in the morning........ou: OK, just kidding. I'm going in to have my total elbow replacement (done June, 2006) REPAIRED. The metal piece in my forearm is no longer attached to the bone in my forearm. They will remove the metal piece, and a good chunk of my bone. Replace my bone with a piece of donor bone, and insert a new (longer/stronger) metal piece. About a 2 or 3 hour surgery Should be there a couple days, if all goes well. I'm not feeling it right now, close to having an anxiety attack. Have to be there by 5:30 in the morning - which means I have to leave here around 4:15 or so. Don't think I'll be getting much sleep. :shock: Doesn't help that my local support system is gone on vacation this week. ou: Bad timing, but at least I made it to Norwalk first! Any ray: ray: and thoughts appreciated. Thanks!
