I guess it's real now.

I completed all my pre-op paperwork today for next month's hip replacement.  Pre-op physical scheduled, pulmonologist notified as directed and at-home physical therapy scheduled.

There has been no doubt of course that the surgery is coming.  It's a little more than 5 weeks away now and time is ticking - fast.

Filling out all the paperwork and sending it to the surgeon's office is the final acknowledgement from me that I have agreed to have this surgery.

And signing the formal consent form was the final straw.  Once I did that, my hands started shaking.

It's real.  And it's 35 days away.
