Just two days before he moves in for a couple of weeks to take care of me after I have surgery. :(
The bad news: I have another hernia. In a different place, near my groin, but an incisional hernia like the last one. This one is more troublesome because it small and tissue is stuck in it, so I am scheduled to have it repaired on Monday the 16th. So, since I have to go back under the knife sooner rather than later, I am going to have a plastic surgeon do it and also have him attempt to do some cosmetic work in the area at the same time.
I am scared, but I hope that things will go smoother this time afterwards since I have a very strong and capable set of extra hands that have volunteered to help me. He has offered to move in to take care of me and my daughter, and I am going to let him (which is very hard, to let people see me at my worst like that). My mom will also be around to help during the days when he is at work, so I hope that things will go well.
I will be out of work for two weeks and will then work from home for the next week. I am going to drive in to work instead of taking public transportation as I normally do for a month after that to ensure that I am fully healed.
Here's to starting 2012 off with a bang! Once I am healed, it is time to get some exercise back into my life because it has been sorely missing for the last, oh, 8 months or so.
