Fantastic!!!!       Pete ~ You did      “Great”….. :-)

Thank you for this special thread…  I’ve just read your postings and you truly have done well.

Now ~ you know mama bluebird chirps~chirps~chirpsss!!!


You are on the healing/recovery stepping-stone and you must stay here awhile.  Don’t you dare go and hurt yourself because you are feeling so good….  (hernia surgery is not what you want to look forward too)…. Take the "proper time" to heal....

Okay…. enough harping… hmmm chirping….  tongue  

We are so excited to hear from you and your daily/weekly updates….. keep them coming!  yeah  


I just went and looked at your Group Hugs and you were surrounded with STRENGTH…… 

You took care of yourself and you started Kegels early!!!!  This says so much and others will read your Journey and will gain so much from it. 


Thank you for taking our hands..... and thank you for allowing all of us to walk with you!

Take care and know we are there with you in thoughts and prayers as you continue to move forward...  Hugs from Lee & Buddy

Pete: Mama Bluebird is the best! And I'm gonna repeat what I said earlier here. Take time to heal slow and heal well. One day at a time, my friend. Listen to Mr. Stupid here (me), who thought he was going to take on the world in a week and made a big mistake. Too much activity created some issues I hadn't anticipated and set me back two weeks.
So sit a while; get up for a while; walk; drink the 3 1/2 quarts of water a day; take your meds, and before you know it, you'll have plenty of days feeling like you never had surgery.
Best to ya, Keep up the good work!
