    ...tomorrow. I'll be in the hospital for about 5 days, then pretty much resting at home the following few weeks. I've mentioned it a few times - but I'll be going through what's called the "Nuss Procedure": Simply put, my sternum is a bit concave, and they're going to insert a steel rod in my chest which bends the bone outward (instantaneously, actually).

    I can't run or do anything like sports right now, 'cause it makes me get tired out quickly - but this is supposed to fix everything, and they remove the bar in 2-3 years, and it's like nothing was ever wrong in the first place.

    Fun, fun.
