New Surgery Date

We had a call this morning from UCLA. Michael's surgery has been postponed one day to Wednesday, July 22nd. We think this is a good thing because Michael was supposed to begin a liquid diet on Sunday which is our travel day home. It will be much easier to begin the prep on Monday instead. Also, originally his surgery was scheduled for 3 o'clock, and it was to be the third surgery of the day - they usually only do two surgeries per day. So, now he's up second that day and the doctors won't be fatigued.

It's all good!
