I see a lot of you guys are about my age (50), so you know the feeling of "what? I'm too young for that". I have a lot of life I still want to experience, and, God willing, I don't intend to miss it. (kind of getting away from the "tip of the day" theme aren't we?)
That's the right attitude Joel! It will be tough but it's in investment in the rest of your life and it will be worth it.
Keep us posted! We will all be thinking of you and sending positive vibes your way on the 8th (and 9th, 10th...). Takes some effort to get up and walk when you don't feel like it. Do it anyway! Chew gum...
Thanks for the info gentlemen. I never thought I would actually be excited about having my abdominal cavity opened up and everything messed around with, but I am looking forward to getting this behind me, recovering and getting on with life. Come on Nov. 8!
