The big day is almost here! I’m in San Francisco for my surgery tomorrow!
I’m a whole mix of emotions right now. Excited and terrified are definitely vying for first place. I was feeling so much more calm about it until last night when I started sobbing in a restaurant over dinner. It’s something I absolutely want, it just sucks that between now and the result I want is an unpleasant experience.
Still, I could not ask for a better support system. My wife is joining me tonight and my friends have been amazing. They threw me a send off brunch in NYC before I left. The huge amounts of love and support are what’s keeping it all together and on track.
Special shout out to the amazing stranger who agreed to switch surgery dates with me. My insurance company denied the claim based on a technicality that could only be fixed by someone switching dates/facilities with me. I’ll be forever grateful to that person 💖
See you all on the other side.
