Surgery is tomorrow. I’m scared.

It’s my first non-cardiac surgery. It’s so not that big a deal. It’s laprascopic, for pete’s sake.

But it’s also the first surgery not done by heart specialists.  I’m not scared of the surgery itself. I’m scared that people who aren’t used to heart patients will give me too much anesthesia or not enough oxygen or something.

I’m not saying this is rational. I have no idea if the amount of anesthesia I get is more or less than “normal” people.  I’m just scared.

It’ll be over by this time tomorrow and I’ll be home, hopefully.
