Laproscopic with waldoes. You can see the machine @ da Vinci Hysterectomy | Gynecology | Minimally Invasive Surgery I'm not getting a hysterectomy, but it's the same procedure.

Thanks, Tax!

Oh, I am sorry you feel badly. I hope you feel better soon. You're in my thoughts.

With love,

Didn't see the machine at that link. But I Googled and there were lots of pix of the machines here: https://www.google.ca/search?q=da+vi...w=1304&bih=596

Taxy, I am sorry you aren't well enough to have your dinner, but I totally understand. Tomorrow is the Beier Family Christmas (when most of us can be in the same place) and I am dreading it because I have no energy. I had a 3 hour nap today and last time we had a family dinner I fell asleep on the couch (I was holding my grandnephew who was also sleeping, so it wasn't so bad ).

Take good care of yourself.

It will be a robotic assist surgery! At least one night in the hospital. Then a month off work. I just want it over with.
Can't blame you. Between no boss and the holidays approaching at least you have some distractions. Get patched up and all better. Got you in my thoughts and prayers.


Taxy, hope you get to feeling better too. And LP, hope you notice those persistent aches just a little less with company tomorrow. Some days I think I'm the only healthy one here on DC. NOT complaining, mind you! Well, I do have a case of the grumbellies tonight...

Just heard on The Chew today that some people dip their biscotti in wine. Hmm gotta try that one.

Hey, CG! Good to know I am not the only night owl. Another bout of insomnia and restless leg.

Thank you for your thoughtful words. At least it is all family and they are all very sympathetic.

If they are doing justice to Silent Night and not blasting my ears with Rock Around The Christmas Tree, I just wish I had seen it. As for the OMG, I always read that as Oh My Gosh! And I assume that is how it was written. It saves me a lot of arguments. And I don't come across as "Holy than thou", which I am not. I have been known to let out a bomb word every so often. Something I am not proud of.
