On Thursday I'll be getting surgery to remove my tonsils and adenoids.  While it sounds like some routine childhood procedure, trust me, it's not.  Usually, they send you home the same day.  I'm being kept overnight.  The reason being, they are concerned that my brain, so used to sleeping at low O2 levels because of my terrible sleep apnea, will not ask my lungs for more after the surgery. 

I guess not remembering how to breathe properly is sufficiently worrying to lead to a night's stay.

Also, there's a chance that I've had some kind of cardiac problem again, due to the apnea.  They can watch me for that too.

more as it develops...
