Met with the surgeon tonight.
Progress is going week, need to keep doing what I'm doing. The main incision has some redness around it so they removed 4 staples and packed it with gauze. They will be taking out the epidural and then giving me oral antibiotics for the would infection. On Wednesday they will remove one of my JP drains. Looks like I'll be 'unhooked' from any tubes (remember the Nicholson scene from the movie Bucket List) My surgeon and said we'll likely get you going home on Thursday, which would be 6 days in the hospital after surgery last week Thursday afternoon. Amazing, about 2-3 days shorter than I anticipated. I'll have another update mid-day tomorrow after the morning action. Later
