Well, it looks like surgery tomorrow is a go!
We started the day with blood work (which was pretty horrible...it took 3 tries to get a blood sample), then a chest x-ray, then an ECG, and then we met with the nurse practitioner and anesthesiologist, and we were home by around 1:30, thankfully.
The nurse practitioner was a little concerned about his skin, but she said that she was pretty sure it wouldn't be an issue tomorrow. Nobody from the surgical team actually checked him out, so I suppose we could still have an unpleasant surprise tomorrow morning, but I doubt it.
So he'll probably get started around 8 a.m. tomorrow, and they say it will probably take 3 or 4 hours. I'll post updates here as I have them.
