Well everyone of you who commented on my blog yesterday says to follow Dr.s orders and take the patch off at midnight. Well these are not exactly his orders but outpatient surgeries policies. My surgery is at 12:30 and I'm just feeling too sorry for myself. No food, not even sips of water, no nicotine and, worst of all, no coffee! How is one to survive? But I'm going to take your advice, stay up as late as I can tonight, and try to stay in bed until it's time to leave. No matter what I will not smoke. However I will bring a lozenge for the ride home.
You guys are the best for keeping me on track. Since I was a nurse back when dinosaurs roamed, I tend to think I know more than them.
