Surgery - Oh so fun!

I am home now from my surgery and everything went well.  My sister was here from Utah and stayed with me the whole time in the hospital which made it SO much easier.  I was truly blessed to have everything go smoothly and be home now.  Pain isn't too bad.  Feels like I've been horseback riding for two days straight... I wonder if I walk funny!  :)
I was actually naive enough to think I could start on my10K training on Monday.  My doctor kind of put a damper on that when he told me I can't jog for at least 2 weeks.  Drat!  I probably won't be able to the the 10K I wanted to before moving.  BUT I am very excited for all the things I do want to do when I'm fully recovered.  
Missing my man - YES
Majorly blessed - YES
Life is Good - Definitely YES!!

It is good to know that your surgery went well. I'm sure it was a lot easier and the recovery will be much easier without all that excess weight. You'll be training for the 5K soon enough.

I'm glad the surgery is behind you. Take care. You'll be running around again soon enough.

If only we lived closer, I'd bring you a wonderful healthy meal as you recover. But since we don't I will send you my love and a big cyber hug. Rest sweet friend and be blessed!!!

So glad that the surgery is over. I have known others who have chosen to have it, and they are glad that they did. This is a very common problem for women, but now you are good to go!

Well wishes your way! That must have been really nice having your sister around! I'm hoping to fly my sis up in a couple months (haven't seen her in 3 yrs or so!).

Sooo...after surgery and you are still smiling! Pretty Amazing Margene - you must know the same God I know :)
