Recovery


Here’s an update:

It’s been nine days since surgery now and I’m slowly getting my strength and pep back. Yesterday I went a whole day with no percocet. I felt it by the end of the day, though.

My . . . um . . . bowel function is SLOWLY coming around. I’m learning what things I can eat and what things I’ll have to wait on. I was home alone yesterday (Jen and the girls went to the state farm show) and splurged and got myself a couple hot wings. Wrong. “No spicy stuff for a while.” That’s what the nurse said. Dummy. My colon was having a fit last night and letting me know it wasn’t happy at all.

The incision was healing up good but yesterday it opened a little. Yuck. And . . . I think I have another hernia already. I didn’t do anything dumb, I promise. “Take it easy for two weeks,” that’s what the surgeon said. “No lifting over 25 pounds for six weeks.” I’ve been obeying.

I see the surgeon today and will make sure I get some answers.

Oh, and in book news, The Hunted made TheSuspenseZone.com’sReviewers’ Choice” top 10 books of 2008. What an honor.

  2. Glad you’re healing well, but put the brakes on and follow doctor’s orders for a little while. The end zone is in view! Hang in there.

  5. Congratulations on being among some great names on the Reviewers’ Choice list, Mike. That’s so awesome!I’m reflecting on the following today and thought you might appreciate the words. “Brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.” James 5:10-11.Psst…I have a chili recipe that might interest you. [insert impish grin here] It’s guaranteed to make your intestines beg for an ice cream chaser.
