I've kept fairly quite about this for no real good reason, but I'm having surgery on Thursday. I've had issues with acid reflux for years and years now and my lung doctors are concerned that it could cause complications with my new lung as time goes on (there's even some speculation that it could have been a factor in my IPF, but that's for another time). So Thursday I get to go into the hospital and get my esophagus tied off. This will prevent any acid from working its way up from my stomach. Though it isn't tied off tight enough that food can't get down.
They say I'll be in the hospital for four to five days. So my stay won't even be that long. I hope to have my laptop with me to make it all the more bearable. If you want to come visit I'll be posting updates on that too so check here for more information.
I get to eat tonight and then I'm on clear liquids till my surgery. Including having to drink a gallon of stuff to clean me out. I'm oh so thrilled for that. Wish me luck!
