I live in West Virginia about 2.5 hours south of Cleveland clinic so it is not too bad of a trip. I go up next Monday for my pre-op interview, tests etc. We are getting a room there and my wife is staying though my surgery. They have a shuttle to take her back and forth to the hospital.
The town I live in is just too small to even consider having it done here. The local urologist has done some procedures and has been trained, but he told me that if it were his issue he would go to Cleveland or Mayo. The Mayo clinic is where my work is based out of, so I have some support there, but I would have to fly there. Plan is to have the surgery on Wednesday and tentatively drive home Friday morning if all goes well.
I feel a little odd this weekend. I know that I have to wind down my work, get some home issues squared away and also get my self setup for coming home after the surgery. I know it is my nerves. I work from home when I am not traveling so this week I have purposely scheduled mostly to be home. I have one day trip to a customer and otherwise I will be here.
thanks for asking and keeping this conversation going. My family is great but they don’t understand what is going through my mind right now. I am pretty sure you get it. I hope all goes well for you, and this week before is uneventful for you.
