It has been a long time. An explanation and a goodby

So where have I been for the last 3 months? Well it all started with surgery. I've had a hernia for the last 6 years. Everyone insisted it was an UMBILICAL hernia, but it turned out it wasn't. I had a major change in pain, called the doctor and was sent to a surgeon who immediately saw that it was an INCISIONAL hernia. You mostly don't fix umbilical hernias, but incisional ones are different. They get fixed.

Two weeks later on October 23rd, I was in surgery. They put me out for what was supposed to be minor surgery at 10:15 am. I woke up sometime after 5:00 pm. It wasn't minor surgery. The surgeon said I looked like swiss cheese. I was being worked on for at least 2 hours, and he had them keep me out for quite a few more hours.

Four days in the hospital, twelve in rehabilitation, two additional weeks homebound. That takes me to almost the end of November. I didn't really start feeling almost normal until mid-December and then I had to do what I could about Christmas.

It isn't fair to readers to have a blog and not write in it. So basically this is goodby. I've enjoyed doing this but it kept getting harder and harder to stop here and post. I am on Facebook, and I'm going to try to do more there. Thank you for reading my blog.
