Despite the obvious abdominal pain, I'm feeling surprisingly good - both physically and mentally. Hoping to be up and on my feet a bit later today.

As an aside, there's no way I could have pulled through as well as I have without my wonderful wife picking me back up when I'm feeling down. And Dr. Tracy Hull is pretty much the best colorectal surgeon on the planet, as far as I'm concerned.

Anybody else at Cleveland Clinic right now and want to hang out to swap stories/programs later? Wink

Here's wishing you a strong recovery Dave.

I had an operation a long time ago although I still remember aspects of it. Suffice to say, post-op I had stabbing pain that was so intense at times I could not even sleep no matter how tired I was. And there was a medical limit to the number of times the nurses could relieve me with a jab of the pain drugs.

I wrote a semi-private blog that I shared with friends (this was before the days of Twitter I think), including writing about the pain, and it was a good way to express myself and alleviate the burden.

So, I say, write on and share if you wish! You will have the opportunity to read back on your notes journal and chuckle.
