A Successful Surgery

Daddy had a successful surgery for his hernia today. The Surgeon said it was larger and was up starting to pop out higher than anticipated. So he reinforced the whole area and Daddy will be as good as new in 6 weeks.

They are keeping Daddy in the hospital for a day or two since it was a fairly extensive surgery especially right after having kidney surgery 6 months ago.

Daddy has a drain in his belly but this one Mommy doesn't have to take care of. Daddy won't be allowed home until the drain can be removed. Then our nursing skills get put to work once again. Lot's and lot's of naps and ice cream will be prescribed.

Poor guy was so hungry he said tonight that the hospital dinner was delicious! Blame it on the pain meds.....

Thank you for all your kind and loving words during yet another stressful time in our lives. Blogville ROCKS!
