Today is finally the day of my operation
The First Day of the Rest of My (hopefully extended) Life !!!

What I expected

I will be checking into the hospital around 9:30AM – for my surgery scheduled for 11:00AM.

This should be  pretty straight forward as all the preliminary stuff and paperwork has already been done at the Pre-admission session last month… so I  should just be checked in and directed to my ward/room to get settled in and “chill out” awaiting my surgery.

What Actually Happened

Pretty much on track… Checked in a little early but was directed straight to Pre-op so didn’t get to my room/ward.  Check in process was simple, fill in and signed a couple more forms and then guided to pre-op by a hospital volunteer.
