See...wasn't that easy? Truly, the whole thing absolutely blows my mind...thank goodness for modern medicine. They'll be able to do this all through one tiny little incision on my leg.
Looks like I won't be getting it done until January though. Which is fine by me considering I'm in absolutely no pain and can function just fine without it. So why get it done it all if I can function without it, you ask? Turns out if I don't get it fixed my risk of stroke pretty much triples. And since I don't care for THAT...I figured the sooner the better. Plus, the hole is supposedly causing my migraines and physical activity exhaustion. So...can't wait for that to get better either, too!
Finally, to answer your questions...Yes! I am fine. Thank you for caring. :)
