The surgery went very well.
The stay in the hospital was not fun at all, but the staff took excellent care of me. I am now back home, quietly resting. Pain is manageable, though there has been quite a lot of it, and I’ve been very, very tired. There’s a lot of recovery ahead, but it’s going as well as can be expected. I’m still feeling foggy and fuzzy, but I expect that is the combined effect of anesthesia, pain, and tiredness.
Thanks very much for all of the good wishes.
