A week ago I ended up in surgery to have a double hernia repair guess you could say it was unexpected went to see the Doctor about something else and ended up having this fixed instead. I have had surgery before I knew what I was in for but he warned me it would be a little more painful than my prior surgery's. Boy was he right, never have I been more fearful to cough or sneeze than ever before. Ended up spending the time camping out in my Mom's big electric recliner chair that will bring you to a standing position which was a blessing for me. I think I about wore the little remote out. Kacy and Wesley also spent the first night with me , so I got to enjoy some midnight feeding sessions with them, Kari pitched in by taking care of Hadley. So a *Big Thank You * to the women in my life. I went over early this morning to meet up with my exercise group and ended up walking (slow) for about 25 minutes I guess that was a good start for now.

Wow Whitey. Did not know that you were down with surgery. Hope that you heal quickly and strongly. It never occured to me that you might have a weakness......medical, physical, or emotional. At least yours is fixed with scissors and thread. You are one of the lucky ones.

Yikes... Nothing like being able to go to your mom's for some R and R though. When I had my hernias fixed, that is who took care of me and my 2 1/2 month old baby. Well, Mike too of course.
Glad that Kari and Kacy were so good to you too!
