One day at a time.

Just popping in to let you know that I came through the surgery okay. I had stay in the hospital Friday night because my heart rate was very high. They felt I needed additional fluids. I was glad to stay for the stronger pain medication! :) I was surprised at how much pain I was in.

The surgeon said there were actually two hernias; one in my belly button and one above it. He also said it looked like what happened was that the infection after the last surgery ate through the sutures, causing the incision to open up. That was the surgery that just kept giving.

So this week I'm taking it easy. Mark took care of me all weekend. My mom is coming over this week, and N is also home and being a big help.

Thanks for all your well wishes. I really appreciate your positive thoughts.

I was wondering how everything went. But you just can't catch a break can you? I am glad you have such a caring family to dote over you until you get 100%.

Yikes! I hope that after you recover from this, that surgery will cease to come back to haunt you.

Take care and feel better soon. I'm glad you're being well cared-for :)
