Bright and early. 7 AM early as a matter of fact, up at Sloan Kettering.  5:45 AM arrival time. At least I won't have to wait around (hopefully) as I am first up. This will be my 5th surgery in 3.5 years. This time on my small intestine. Not looking forward to it, but hopefully I can say NED again tomorrow late morning.  Wish me luck.
