Just thought you should know...
All the same it's a little weird knowing that there's a sort of "manufacturer's defect" in your body that could kill or cripple you at any unpredictable moment it damn well feels like. I was, therefore, happy when I made it through my last surgery successfully and was informed that they had "fixed the problem."
Turns out that "fixed" in this case is a pretty vague term that doesn't mean "elminated the problem" so much as "well, it's somewhat less of a problem now, but could still annihilate you at its discretion." Fortunately for me I have not, thus far, experienced any of the complications I've been warned about:
Nevertheless, the threat is still there so, like it or not, I'm going to have to go into surgery again. Today in fact. As it happens, in all likelihood, by the time you read this I'll either already be in surgery or be finished with the procedure.
Wish me luck, be nice to my Sainted Fiancee, and I'll let you know when I'm up and around again.**
* Personally, I'm hoping for that whole "Nightcrawler" teleportation thing.
** Unless I die or suffer a major complication during the surgery- events that I am told are extremely unlikely to occur.
