Post Surgery Update

For those who didn't know, I had an inguinal hernia repair on Tuesday. It wasn't very big but was starting to cause some problems. I found a specialist in Las Vegas who did it on the cheap and so Damien and I drove up last Sunday. The staff at Dr. Petersen's office was fantastic and I am glad I chose them.

Labwork and EKG was Monday, surgery was Tuesday, and after the follow up on Wednesday we drove back home to Phoenix. My appetite has been virtually nonexistent and I've lost 7 pounds since surgery but hopefully that's turning around. Tomorrow my incision bandage comes off and I'm going to continue taking it easy for the next several days.

Thanks to all my well wishers and loved ones who have all been so great and supportive in the last 2 months I've been wrestling with this. Looks like all the hard stuff is finally behind me!
