I had outpatient surgery this week. Getting prepared was more effort than getting over it. It was worse in my mind that it turned out and hopefully I will be better that ever. This is especially good since I will be 50 in a month. Turning 50 is not so bad except that you know your body is falling apart and will continue, despite trying to exercise and eat healthy. I guess it happens to everyone. I don't want to have surgeries to improve my 50ish look but if only I could surgically remove the 50ish aches and pains. Now that would be medical advancements.
Turning 50 is better than the alternative I guess.
