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.
