Under The Knife


DOWNTOWN, NJ -- Well, the time has finally arrived... I've been putting off this surgery long enough. Now, I'm going to have it done. Scheduled time to arrive is 11:30 AM tomorrow (Wednesday)... 1:00 PM for the main event. It's minor surgery, so I should be out in time for dinner... hopefully! God-willing, everything will go smoothly and I won't wake up 200 years in the future wrapped in tin-foil like Woody Allen in Sleeper.

I'm hopeful that recovery will only be 7-10 days, but lots of people have gone longer. We'll see. Anyway, if I do find myself in the Western Zone trying to clone the Great Leader's nose in the Aries Project, well... I just wanted to say how fun it's been, y'all!

Best Regards...

You should recover in time to have a reprise with the ether bunny. Good luck with the surgery!

OLA,
Ether bunny? Very funny! Thanks for the encouragement.

Kajun,
Gosh... I'm afraid to ask what! Hopefully it wasn't Kim Jung Ill who made you eat 'yellow cake'?

Good luck, Jim. Having recently done the surgery thing myself, I can sympathize!

God bless and keep you! I was a bit surprised that you were able to book Woody Allen as a double. I thought he was going to play Cindy Sheehan in the upcoming movie???

I hate when you go into the hospital well and come out sick.It is really hard to make oneself do that .Not that you like to go in as an emergancy ,but at least you don't have to make that decision.
I will keep you in my prayers. Do everything the doctors and nurses tell you .
May God hold you in the palm of his hand

Everybody,
Sorry I don't have time to reply to each of you individually, but I've got to get off to bed. As you know, big day tomorrow. Thanks for all of your prayers, kind thoughts, and humorous anecdotes. I hope to be back on-line in a day or two. Thanks again (:D)

You didn't say what kind of surgery ao I'll assume it is a face lift and tummy tuck.Best wishes for a quick recovery.

OLA...."ether bunny"... too cute.

Don't let anyone put you in an ambulance---First thing they do is jab you in the most inconvient spot they can think of (they got me in the crook of my elbow once and on the inside of my ankle [on the bone] the next time), and start dripping seawater (or something similar) into you.

They gave me 1/2 oz. of oxygen for $95.00...a full large 1500 lb.bottle costs $10.53, where I buy it...for my cutting torch.

Prayin for ya, Hawk.

Hey everybody,
Thanks for the comments. Back from the hospital. Doctor said everything went "perfectly"... but I've been in a lot of pain, even through the Demarol(sp?) first, and now the Percoset(sp?). Thanks for all your prayers and words of encouragement. I will now try to relax a bit.

Thanks for being such good friends!

Doctor RAM.
