Greetings, all! I'm home from the wars... well, I've brought the battle home, at any rate.
Many, many thanks to all the wonderful folks who sent messages, flowers, gifts, etc. I cannot express how much it meant to me to have you there, cheering me on, and how instrumental it was in my relatively rapid recovery. If I get through this stage of things without major problems, I owe it all to you and your encouragement and kindness.
I've had a few minor setbacks since coming home, one being an infection of the incision (it's amazing how low a little infection can bring you), and I think I may have slightly torn an inner incision last night - which may put a dent in my ambition to get driving again by the end of the week. I'm not a patient person, and the Cabin Fever is definitely getting to me. That said, things have otherwise been going pretty well, and I can't complain.
(Well, I can complain, of course, because I'm good at it, but I can't legitimately complain)
Onward and upward!!
