I’ve been able to avoid surgery for 38 years, a streak that will be broken tomorrow. (I’m no Tim Conder, who hasn’t puked since 1983!) It seems I’m in good enough health to go under general anesthesia. According to my physical yesterday: my blood pressure is 92 over 70 and I have a small hernia, but other than that, I’m ready to go.
And, yes, I did become faint when the doc was describing my hernia to me!
