It's all about the details. Just found out that I check in tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. for surgery scheduled at 2:45 p.m. Whew. Am I ever gonna be hungry and looking forward to Popsicles in my hospital room tomorrow night, heh?


Here's one short video for y'all, detailing my diet possibilities the day before surgery. You'll understand what I'm talking about after you watch the next short video.


And here's another one which shows you the details of my diet the day before surgery. The info sheet was provided to me by Naomi, Dr. Steiner's thoroughly excellent nurse, at the end of the office visit last Friday. A kind co-worker of mine drove me to the lab for No. 1 on the list - Type and screen blood test to be done day before surgery at your nearest clinic. Completed thanks to him prior to 7:45 a.m. this morning!

Good news! Not only am I getting ready for surgery, I'm learning how to enjoy my new iPhone6 Plus, the big one! I'm able to use it and will continue to explore it, with the aid of all those young techies in my life--thanks, y'all!

At the store, I took advantage of the low-cost offer to get an LG G Pad 7.0 which is a tablet, my first ever tablet, well, one not made out of paper anyway.

After much effort and self-control on my part, I finally got the tablet to where I can watch NYPD Blue as I eat my lunch at work--it's on Amazon Prime Instant Video; I'm in Season 4, Episode 22, "A Draining Experience," a title appropriate to how my day shall proceed on the clear liquid diet.

Using an Android-system device made me think I'd been invaded by aliens who successfully sucked my brains out through my finger tips! Today I'm taking my brains back! I shall make the tablet work with Facebook and Gmail and Netflix.

It occurs to me that it's been years since I've had jello. Good luck tomorrow!
