I'm so thankful for modern medicine. On Wednesday, I had a tennis ball sized hernia repaired. It was much larger than expected so I've been in great pain. Yesterday they tried a new pain medication, and it worked!! As long as I'm medicated then I am able to get up and walk, shower, and do anything except bend or lift.
I'll be back in a few days after I get acclimated to being home. I hope y'all have a great week!
