Recovering

Blogging from bed. Recovering from today's surgery. Everything went smoothly--I've just been tired all day from the anesthesia and have a mild sore throat. After sleeping all day I feel pretty good tonight. I go back in 6 weeks for round two.

The doctor made four small laser incisions in the stenosis and then expanded it. Then he treated the area with mitomycin-c to help with scar tissue build up. He believes doing two surgeries a month apart wil have longer lasting effects.

I've got surgery photos, but they're pretty gross.

My facebook friend who had the same surgery sassed I'll be feeling great Monday back to exercising and everything. Yea!

Hi! Mom is visiting and got your post on her phone. I haven't checked blogs or Facebook for weeks and was completely out of the loop. Glad mom was here to update me. We are both catching up on your blog and both hope you are feeling better. Love you!

Oops, that last comment was really from me, not Brent. Guess he logged into Gmail on my computer. I'm sure he loves you and wishes you well too...but he wouldn't be reading your blog with his mom at his side (at least we hope not). xxx

Oh. I didn't know. I'm sorry my daughter was probably at your house. . . being noisy! Can you talk? Do you need anything? How about some soup?
