So here I go again

So here we go again. I'm going to get cut tomorrow morning.  The surgery though, it's no big deal.  The doc is opening me up and pulling out the bone growth stimulator that has been in my back since February 23 2011.  I think the battery is dead now, I used to feel strange buzzings and now I feel nothing.  It doesn't matter, it's done it's job and I'm healthy and pain free now and is just an implanted device that is no longer needed.

I'm not really worried about the surgery, just kind of ticked that I have to have yet another invasive procedure done.  He said they'd give me a local and just remove the bone stimulator quickly, but I'm not sure I want to be awake while he's cutting my skin open.  So I'm to fast after midnight, shower tonight before bed (fat chance) and again when I get up at 5 am to arrive at Waukesha Memorial day surgery by 6am.

Wish me luck.  Hopefully this is the last time I have to get cut for the rest of my life which I hope to be another 30 years at least.
