Update: 3 days after my surgery

It's been 3 days since my surgery and I am feeling a lot better than I did on Tuesday. I wrote my original blog entry less than 24 hours after my surgery and I think I still had some of the really good drugs in my system. Tuesday night I was in terrible pain and all I wanted to do was take as many happy pills as I could get my hands on. I felt like Hervé Villechaize on a Fantasy Island True Hollywood special. "The pain! The pain!" I took off the dressing yesterday and just about passed out. I don't recommend doing that if you are even the bit squeamish about blood. (Did I mention I'm an incredible wuss?)

Today I feel better and I am even driving around. I don't feel great but I'm not popping happy pills ever four hours like I was Tuesday and Wednesday. I just pop them every 6 hours. That's an improvement!

Thanks for all your emails and comments on facebook. It's been fun to talk to everyone.
