Well, after 17 days I busted out of the hospital on Sunday, 11/29.
No more IV's, blood draw, etc.
I jumped back into work on Monday, 11/30 and it's been a productive week.
Still in pain and bloated from the surgery and I go back for a follow up visit on 12/10.
I'll be interested to hear their opinion on how I'm doing.
In the meantime, taking it one day at a time.
