First of all, thank you all for the overwhelming response of good luck messages, post op texts and words of encouragement. You all rock ! Here’s how the day went:

1) Arrival and Check-in

2) Waiting for the anesthesiologist

3) Post op

4) Arrival at home

Big shout out to my Mom, I can’t imagine getting my prescription, back home and into the house in my post operation state without her. Thank you all again for the great messages, hopefully recovery happens quickly.
