Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes regarding my surgery. I cannot tell yet how successful it was in relieving the pain I've been in, but bottom line is I did have a good sized hernia and now I don't. So, regardless, it had to be fixed, and it has been. My body is sure trying to adjust to this piece of mesh that now reinforces the lining of my abs in that area - owie owie ouch ouch ouch. It's not so bad though, the pain meds made me so nauseous and dizzy I couldn't get out of bed, so without them I hurt but can at least be up and around - I'll take that trade off. Time will tell here, but overall not a bad experience at all. Worst was trying to get an IV, as always took 3 nurses and 5 sticks and just a nightmare, they always say my veins are "collapsed" whatever the heck that means. Once they finally got the IV in it was all downhill from there.

thanks everyone, really!!!!!!!!!!!!

Take care,
...the greatest of these is LOVE. (I Cor 13)
