T-6 and counting

In 6 hours we'll be on our way over to the hospital for surgery. I'm excited about what's to come. I'm just not thinking about the recovery in front of me right now and focusing only on the surgery and how successful it is going to be and how I will go through it easily. My partner is very stressed. I'm pretty stressed too, but feeling prepared. Food tonight was a struggle. This hotel sucks, as do most of them it seems. Why is it so hard to make a hotel room accessible? It isn't I swear. Just think, and if you can't think then sit in a chair and try to reach things. I won't bore you with all of the details here, but I'll rant about the accessibility further at some point soon.
I just wanted to let you know, friends and family, that I love all of you and appreciate so much the great support and energy we are receiving and will be receiving.
See you on the other side. Keep up your chants, visualizations, positive energy and communications with your diety(ies). Know that you've done something great to help me.
And we'll focus on lots of long hikes in our futures.
Love to all.
Kriss

Hey, I called the hospital and they told me Kriss got out of surgery at about 12:30 CA time. Anyone know anything else? Maureen

Kriss, just wanted you to know I've been thinking of you all day. You're probably freezing in ICU right now (I just remember that place's being SO cold and making them bring me heated blanket after heated blanket. I was also just really bored), and hopefully you're not in too much pain. I hope everything went great and you're on your way to an easy, low-pain, complication-free recovery.
