Roadrunner Reflections - Post Surgery Update

Just wanted to send out a quick update.  Surgery went well.  We have a way to go and taking it a day at a time but things are on track.  We saw the doctor yesterday and he was pleased with how things went and how they looked.  Things went smoothly.

The doctors and staff were first rate and top notch.  They were professional, had answers for all our questions and emoted a general sense of confidence, caring and ones that are in the prime of their medical career.  We were immediately put at ease talking with them about the task at hand.

We arrived an hour early early, prepped for surgery for about an hour and a half, had the two hour surgery and a couple of hours in recovery.

The general anethesia took a while to wear off and I wasn't feeling too great but it's all manageable. I have regained my appetite and am adjusting to the head down position that's required for 50 minutes every hour.  Sleeping has been interesting but that too is working out OK.

An eye surgery nurse just called to check up and answer any questions we have.  We've been very well taken care of.

More than that, we appreciate all of you and the people we have heard from.  Your interest and concern, your prayers and words of encouragement mean a lot to us.  Thanks very much!

That's all for now on the Roadrunner Chronicles!  Back to 'head down' and moving through recovery.  :)

  8. Great news, now the "fun" begins with the head down position and the gas bubble. Don't get discouraged, it will work out for the best, I'm sure.
