I had surgery to repair my hernia on Monday. It went well, I guess, all things considered. I’ve taken the week off from work to recuperate. It’s Friday now, and I’m feeling a lot better, though I know I’m not nearly done healing. I walked over to the grocery store yesterday and got a few things. (This is one of those times when I’m really grateful that I have a ShopRite that’s only about a block away.) But I’m definitely not ready for any long walks.
I haven’t quite decided what I’m going to do next week. I have a follow-up visit with the surgeon on Tuesday, so hopefully he can give me an idea of how I’m progressing, and let me know if it’s OK to go back to work. I may just see if I can work from home next week. (And, again, this is one of those times when I’m grateful that I do the kind of work that can be done remotely.)
