It Starts tomorrow !
We leave at 5 am tomorrow so we can start the day of many tests tomorrow. I have a EKG, MRI, CT scan, metal test,a hearing test, pre-op clearence with blood tests and physical. A couple of orbital x-rays for who knows what. --Oh a UTI test too, lets not forget the one I'm most worried about !! If I don't pass the UTI test, surgery gets canceled and we start over again. I also can't eat at all that day till the evening which will sure save on money since I can't eat Thursday either because I have a angiogram and then a PICC line will get threaded into my veins at my heart. She did say I could eat that night as well and then Friday no eating again and surgery at 7am till 7 pm or later. I don't think the lady that just called really thought about what she was saying. First you'll have your angigram where after they shave it, they will thread a big catheter in your groin area into a vein . They'll get some great photos and then you come get your PICC line from me. I said Photos ????? Um sounds like fun ! lol What a fun week we will have !!
