wow.. that sucks, so sorry to hear this. Make sure you stay FH-connected while in the hospital so we can keep track of your progress
Personally I have no idea what that entails...but it doesn't sound pleasant. As someone who was relatively healthy but had a bunch of **** simultaneously implode over the last year, some of it life-threatening, I can understand your apprehension over the entire ordeal, but can only add that as with me, a)you'll modify what you have to and move on and b)often the anticipation far exceeds what turns out to be the reality. So hang in there bud.
ANNOUNCING a new FH smiley. Use it judiciously and selectively as to not diminish its impact!
