Surgery schedule--sort of

Sherrie's surgery is scheduled; sort of. The surgeon tried to schedule the plastic surgeon for this Monday, but it didn't work out. So, we go see the plastic surgeon on Thursday the 19th, We think that the surgery will happen on Wednesday the 25th, but that is supposition based on our conversations with the doctor's nurse. We won't know for sure until after the 19th.

We are grateful for the plastic surgeon's willingness to help Sherrie. Apparently, she is very popular, and "normal" appointments with her are now being scheduled for June. Also, her schedule is so tight that she works in "special" cases like these on her days off.

With respect to the timing of the surgery, Sherrie is a little disappointed and at the same time relieved. It means waiting another 10 or so days for the surgery, but it also means she'll be able to go to school next week and prepare her reading groups for her absence. It also means we have a few more days to prepare for the surgery and the downtime afterward.

We'll post more updates here as we get more information.
