It is with trepidation that I state that I will be heading in for surgery on Friday at 1630 UTC. The work will be done at a hospital but that is only because their facilities are being borrowed so this should be an outpatient that will just take a while. Prayers are always helpful and useful.

Expected recovery from this frankly scares me as healing from the surgery will take time and then there will be follow-up work to be done. I understand that this is a need part of improving my health. This just happens to be one of the harder parts.
