The week before last we scheduled the surgery to have the prostate removed for April 20, 2019. This was contingent on having a clean bill of health from my cardiologist.
I work out 7 days a week, so the note from my heart doctor should not be a problem.
My wife had a problem with the surgery being so far out. I had a peace with it. I am in the process of migrating servers right now in the hosting ministry, and the next one is due to expire towards the end of April. I figured I would feel good and be sure to have the server I am working on closed out.
Today I received a call from the scheduler. They had a cancellation. The surgery has been moved up now to April 15. They also never got the go ahead from my cardiologist.
A call to the cardiologist discovers a letter was faxed to the surgeon on March 18. They were going to fax it again today. So – we are a go for April 15 at this time.
Shouldn’t be a problem, but I need to step up and make sure the server is completed prior to the surgery just in case.
