Getting prepped

Student Blood Sucker at Flickr.comI expected my surgery pre-admission consult today at St. Paul's Hospital would be all talk, but it included the drawing of six (six!) vials of blood from my arm for various tests.

It also involved quite a bit of waiting, as I've come to expect from hospital visits. I spoke to the receptionist, two lab technicians (one a student), a nurse, and an anaesthesiologist. And I filled out a lot of paperwork. It took a little over two hours.

On Monday I'm on an all-liquid diet, and Tuesday I go in for the first of two operations. As SpongeBob says, "I'm ready."
