A Brief Update

I'm officially hernia-free...yippee! I hate to be a wimp, but I must admit, that surgery was a little more than I bargained for. I guess I was thinking I'd be up and at 'em, ready to get on with my life pretty quick, but unfortunately I am very sore. Yesterday I basically layed on the sofa and whimpered all day. The day is still young, but today I am optimistic that I am going to be feeling a lot better than I did yesterday. The doctor ended up repairing the two abdominal hernias, plus one of the hernias in my groin. Luckily the 4th one was very small so he just left that one alone.

Can I also tell you how great my husband is? I mean, really. The man is in no way use to providing round-the-clock care for the boys, and he's just jumped right in there and taken over. I wish so badly I could give him a little break so he could go jogging or something. Besides caring for the boys, he's had to be helping me every time I need to get up or down, wait on me hand-and-foot, etc. Just wanted to give Steve a little public pat on the back, because I sure do love him and appreciate him. Thanks, honey!

Time to get back to my convalescing. More updates coming soon!

Glad to hear you are on the mend! Take it easy! The newest issue of Family Circle is really good so maybe Steve could pick it up for you! Thanks for the update - I was wondering how you're doing. :)
