With my surgery coming up Thursday, Helaine and I (mostly Helaine) decided it was time for some fur removal. Lots of things will be affixed to my body. This way they can be removed with a little less ouch.

Here in the Fox family this is referred to as the “Full Anderson Cooper.” The goal is to finish smooth as a baby seal. Not quite tonight, but close enough. I’m sure someone from the surgical team will perform a touch-up before we get started Thursday.

My pre-op calendar only has one more event, now scheduled after work on Tuesday. They need my stomach mainly empty. ‘Nuff said.
