Recovering

Well, the shoulder surgery is done, my Percocet haze is lifting, and I finally got to take a shower today. So I've got a few things going for me. Which is nice.

The surgery seems like it was a success, even though the surgeon told my wife "It was a mess in there." He was able to do the repair, and now we just wait to see if it holds.

I'm already sick of sitting around and watching tv.

I think my wife is getting tired of me pacing around the house.

The dog wants to know why I'm home all the time but not playing with her. Also, I think she enjoyed me pre-shower. My scent is much less interesting now.

My kids have been pretty good about helping out. My wife has been an absolute amgel about taking care of me.

Not much else to report. I'll post something Follicular Lymphoma-related soon. I could use the distraction.

(You know things are awesome when you can use cancer as a distraction....)

And thanks for the well-wishes. More sometime this week.
