J-Man is in the procedure room now. They are expecting anywhere from 30 min to 1.5 hours for the procedure, depending on how smoothly everything goes. Recovery should be 1-3 hours, also depending.
Based on the registration information, the insurance company is playing nice right now and not blocking this. Good thing, J says, as he hasn't eaten since supper last night, and they don't want to mess with a hungry man.
He has made me promise to take him to Great American Hot Dog afterwards for a cheeseburger. Heck, I might even get him two.
