I signed my consents on Thursday at St. Joe's in Hamilton. Yahoo! It's very real now. We've been invited on a vacation at the end of January that I really want to go on so I chose not to go on the wait list until we get back. Every minute of every day I am second guessing myself because I know that in 2 weeks I could be in and moving on with my life! I hope the next 3 months fly by.

Congratulations!!! That's awesome. :)
I suspect the next couple of months are busy for surgeries, and even if they do offer you a surgery date that conflicts with your plans, they will be accommodating with your timeline. You can't be the first to make a request for delaying a few weeks. It'll work out.
Enjoy this time, and your vacation!!! Surgery will come soon enough. :)
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. Choose happy.

Oh, that's great!
I had my surgery on Feb. 1st last year and it's a great time to have surgery because it means you're not on Opti over Christmas, lol. Enjoy your holidays and vacation! The time WILL fly by and next thing you know, you'll be on the loser's bench.
