Smile Back from Hernia Operation...

This was the first day I felt well enough to sit upright and work on the PC. Had the operation on Monday.

Used the time in bed to relax and reflect on my life...decided I was pretty happy with my family and career...and yes, MBs.

Pain medicine wasn't working very well the first two days, so I was really hurting. Got prescribed some more potent stuff, and I feel much better!

My wife has been a real angel through all of this...I love her so much!

Couldn't occupy my time with the myriad of projects in the house, so I got to spend lots of quality time with my daughter...almost forgot how much fun she is!

Some of us take the time to stop and smell the roses...others, like me have to be forced into incapacitation to do so.

Thanks to all for your support, and for those of you who went through the same kind of surgery, you were quite accurate in describing what to expect.

I'll be back to my usual posting rate by next week...

The ability to withstand laughing and coughing without pain is the true barometer of full recovery...got a LONG way to go on that issue...

OOH! Is that you now G? I thought you were allergic to fitness Hey, now's a good time to make a change. I'm selling finger weights for computer geeks so they can get a workout while they type. Interested?

Decided to accompany my wife to work today...she wasn't too happy about that. Felt I was pushing too much.

I am getting a lot done though, and I am testing my endurance. So far it seems like I can do a solid day's work if I don't run around too much.

Will see my doc next week and he'll probably give me an earful about not taking a long enough recovery. But hey, if I feel okay, why not?

Had my followup visit with my surgeon this morning, and he said that my recovery was "ahead of the curve", so to speak. Everything checked out fine.

I have resumed normal activities, and pretty much off of pain meds as well. Doc suggested another week before doing any real strenuous stuff, like lifting engine blocks .

I am amazed at the quantum leaps in medical technology advancements in just a few years! People I've talked to that have had similar (but more invasive) hernia operations would still be a week away from doing much more than getting out of bed! I was up and around after three days!

Oh, yeah, I also got the green light on bedroom activities...
