surgery update

hey all,

i am finally able to sit at computer and type. the surgery was successful and i get the path reports back today or tomorrow. it was 7 hrs on table and lost of recovery time. now it's just the slow road back. may try to knit a little between naps and pain killers :)

update of update: knitting again. although the first effort had to be frogged (not much work was lost) got rid of catheter. now have to figure out where the shut of valve is :) happy to be back and grateful for all the support

I love naps. Too bad you're taking them under these circumstances. Cumffy pillow and a blanky, that's where it's at.

Good to hear your on the road to recovery, Steve. Glad it went okay and hope the paths are all good news. Have a grand time knitting. Looking forward to hearing that you're completely healed and okay. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Naps and pain killers are good things. I am now staple free and will be able to nap in a COMFORTABLE position.

Glad to know you are also recovering well.

Don't over do it and enjoy the quiet time, the knitting will always be there. Cups of lovely hot sweet tea and naps ...... oh how wonderful....except for the circumstances.

You need a lovely soft hand knitted shawl to crawl under. Thanks for the update and I am so happy things are going ok.

I'm sure that slow road will go more quickly then you can imagine. Rest well and get better soon.
