I am doing well; I talked to the surgeon today and he gave me the OK to go back on probiotics and gave me some more pointers. As far as I can read, I am healing right on schedule. At some point I'll connect with Keith! I gave in and, on the advice of the surgeon' nurse, started taking the pain meds as prescribed (I'd been taking less) and that has helped a lot, too. Even the hemmie is a lot better already!
This weather has been unreal, hasn't it? And we don't have A/C except for a unit in our bedroom. We've never really needed it before!
Thanks for the positive vibes, coming up the train tracks on Metro North....?
