Got my final instructions for surgery on Monday Mar 7th

The scheduling nurse just called.  I need to be in there at 6am.  I go into Penn Presbyterian at the Cupp Building, then follow the signs to the Wright Saunders building.  Then I take the elevator to the third floor and find the Heart and Vascular Unit.  I am to bring no valuables or cash.  The clothes I wear in will go home with my sister as I will not be able to have anything in the ICU after surgery.  That means I will have to pack a bag with going home clothes for her to bring in later in that week.

I am not to eat  or drink after midnight nor take any pills.  No brushing of teeth or swilling of water in my mouth.  I hate morning mouth, oh well.
