Well, I made it through the surgery with flying colors and am now ensconced in a lovely room looking out at a courtyard at the hospital. Through a combination of epidural and oral pain meds, I was a little loopy most of yesterday and was dozing on and off. I'm told I can expect today will be about the same, although I will be getting up and moving around a bit. Obviously no condition to say anything too profound, except "When can I have my next pain shot?"
There will be some guest blogging going on until I get back home--probably on Friday sometime.
As for the election yesterday, don't worry. You'll hear more from me about it later in the week or so!
In the meantime, I will also put up some oldies but goodies maybe later on tonight.
Again, thanks for all the good wishes!
