I've mentioned this, more or less off-hand, a couple (ok about a hundred!) times lately, but here it is officially:

I'm going in, in a little less than 12 hours to get my darned ol' gallbladder yanked out so that I can finally (after 11 months!) start (and keep!) feeling better.

I'm not overly concerned - in fact, I'm looking forward to getting it over with - but several (wonderful, caring) members here have expressed concern and heartfelt well-wishes and I just wanted to take the time to say "Thank you, each and everyone, it really means quite a lot to me!"

I'd like to be nervous and I guess I probably should be and maybe I am just a little bit, but mostly I figure that it won't be a big deal and I'll be back on my feet in a day or two and back to work in about 3 weeks or a month.

In the mean time, you poor souls are liable to get awfully tired of me hanging around all the time.

So thanks again to everyone who's already wished me well and thanks in advance to anyone who bothers to respond to this. With friends and family like you guys, my convalescence should be an absolute breeze! (Not to mention a real hoot!)

handshake hug

...Don...
