Well....with much trepidation, things are ready to roll.

Had my pre-op physical today and eye surgery is scheduled for 6:00AM on Monday. Started the pre-op eyedrops today 3 times daily. No booze this weekend for the kittyman. Gotta be at my full strength for this one.

Any thoughts or prayers sent my way would be much appreciated.

Meow meow.

Oh good! All the best and fingers crossed. What timezone would that be, so thoughts can be with you?

You'll be fine Mark. Its a quick surgery, and you'll be so glad you did it. My mom instantly knew the difference after her surgery, she could see so much better. I'll be thinking of ya on Monday.

Well, not quite 6 million, but a rather hefty sum out of pocket nonetheless.

And this would be Central Standard Time...thanks, Miep.

No alcohol? S'truth, thats a bit strong, sport! Oh, damn, thats what an Australian would say. I don't really know what to say, but I'm going to be 'quietly hopeful' and hope, as always, it all goes well. On behalf of, Thumper, Sam, Yowler, Button, Tim, Sofie and Fizzy, our best hopes.

Great to hear that it's being moved up so fast. Seems like most of the time it's a month or two wait.

The greatest of luck Mark. (Even though I don't think you'll need it.)

You're down to the short strokes, so it's time to express my hopes for a speedy recovery from a successful surgery.
Good luck msattler.
