Hernia Repair

I have been away from my computer the past few days because I have been recovering from hernia repair surgery.  I am a horrible patient and usually drive my husband crazy, so I promised I would be better this time.  I vowed to do exactly as he said, no matter how hard it was.  My brother and sister-in-law, who are both nurses, advised me to stay in bed for 2 days following the surgery and then take it slow from there.  I had the surgery on Thursday afternoon and stayed in bed Friday and Saturday.  That was really good advice, because getting up and moving around today was not too bad.  Unfortunately, my surgery was not laproscopic, so it will take a little longer to heal.  I think I am doing really well.  Hopefully tomorrow hubby will let me go run a couple of errands with him.  I won't be able to get out of the car and lift stuff, but it will be nice to just go outside.
