Staples are LONG GONE.

Just a little update on the surgery. All the staples are out, along with the other drain tube. YEA. Doc said I was doing really good considering the extent of the hernias. Don't have to go back and see him for a month. FREEDOM, FREEDOM, FREEDOM AT LAST.

I do have to take it easy for the next 6 weeks, but, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel from here. I tried really hard to get the Doc to tell me I couldn't or shouldn't do any house work for 6 weeks (hubby, David, was there with me), but, he told me I could do want ever I thought I could as long as I did not pick up anything heavier than a gallon of milk. HUM, a wet mop gets pretty heavy is what I am thinking.

Best news yet, I can get back to quilting and stash busting. Hip, Hip, Hooray!!!!!!

Don't tell anyone, but, I did order more fabric via internet. Hey, I can't drive, but, I can still shop. lol

Hooray! Did you cry when they removed the staples? Maybe they did it wrong to me, but when I had my first child, I had an emergency C-section and they stapled me up and when I got the staples out, it hurt SO BADLY! When I had c-section number two, I asked them to please use good old-fashioned needle and thread!
