Slice n’ dice

All of that brings us to today. Surgery day.

We took some before photos of my tongue and neck. The tongue is fairly gruesome, so those photos won’t be for the faint of heart.

Originally, surgery was scheduled for 12:30 PM, with check in time at 10:30. When we did the pre-admitting testing, we were told surgery was now at 7:30 AM with check-in at 5:30. I hate mornings. Our confirmation call yesterday finalized the surgery at 9:00 with check-in at 7:00. Not quite as early, but still a restless night with only a couple hours of sleep.

And that, dear reader, brings us up to date. It’s almost three months to the day that I first noticed the sore on my tongue. Fortunately, I saw it early and took action early enough to avoid something more horrible. Like they always say: if you notice sore that doesn’t heal, strange lumps, or anything else that doesn’t look right, go to the doctor. It could save your life.
