Just a quick post to tell y'all how much I appreciate this Forum and the people on it. I don't know what I would have done through all of my trials without the support and knowledge of so many. Thank you all so much! I am now recovering from hernia surgery to the stoma site. It went well, but I am still very sore...today is 8th day post surgery. Tomorrow I have the drain removed (hopefully) along with the staples. My hubby is recovering from same surgery but 5 days ahead of me...he is doing well, and will probably have his staples removed tomorrow as well....YAHOO!! I hope everyone is having a great day! ...Cheryl
