Best wishes and mojo for a speedy recovery coming your way!
Happy Surgery Day, Phil!! I thought of you when I ran this morning. I even took a few minutes out from my usual thoughts of "breathe, breathe, breathe dammit!" to say prayers for you and to send you positive vibes. May your surgeons be highly skilled and on top of their game today! And, may your recovery be less painful than you anticipate and much more speedy than you thought possible!! Good luck, Phil!!
Oh, and try not to be a PITA for your DW. If she needs to vent a little, she is always welcome here. ;-)
