I have made it back on line to give you aan update. I went for surgery Feb 23 and all went well. Released from the hospital after 5 days and was home a day and a half when I realized things were not working! Back to the emergency room and diagnosed with an obstruction. My doc finally got an NG tube down after several trys so I had some relief. We waited out the obstruction/slow wake up for 14 days! I am now home with every thing working as it should!
This has been way more of an event than I ever imagined! Thanks for the support and comments. I will fill in more details as I feel better!
