hi Candi,

THe date of my surgery is on Dec 27th no time yet, that will be determanded by the hospital when they get teh info and then 1-2 days before the syrgery I will have a time.

Watch it be at 7 30 am MST. Then I have to get up at 4 am to be at the hosopital at 5 30 am MST.

IT is clear out in Sun CIty West.

IT takes about 30 minutes to get there.

And the also the 4 am stuff is due to me becuase I do NOT move great in the morning.

She will probably have to wake me up at least 2 times.

I am nervous even now as it is only a little over 2 weeks.

THinking about what he is going to do to my ankle and foot is un nervin., I have been thru this b4 with him 2 times on the other ankle. and is was also done by a doc in Louisana when I lived there in JR.high,

so 3 times on the same ankle and foot.

This will be the first time on the other ankle and foot. Most of it is due to some ot the drop attacks and T/Cs when I did have them I would get stuck in weird places and hurt on the drops.

better get going somone is bugging me for popcorn.

talk later.

I just wanted to let you knwo I said I would up date and I am.
