Mom's surgery is tomorrow morning. When I talked to her tonight I teased her and told her she'd be the bionic woman afterward. I have a hard time with the fact that any kind of heart surgery is minor, but this seems to be. It's technically outpatient.
I'm in the throes of severe tripod lust right now. My old one is infuriating me, and I'm thinking maybe it's time to just jump to the high end and cut out all the intermediary steps. The only downside is that the FUSTP seems to be a near-four-figure proposition. EEK!
