The surgery went perfectly, I'm well under way to a full recovery. Eating solids again, which is nice. I'm almost able to get up by myself, and I cannot tell you how much I'm looking forward to going to the bathroom alone again. =P
The stitches still hurt, of course, but I'm mostly just scared of doing something wrong. Mom took me to a return visit to the surgeon today and he kindly let me know I'm a wuss for carrying a pillow pressed to my stomach (in case I have to cough or something, a nurse told me it helps hurt less... but that was 3 days ago).
Thank you all for the positive thoughts and prayers, keep 'em coming. =)
P.s.: Since when does the update page have a "current location" entry??
