Alive and kind of kickin

Well I made it !! I know it had only been a year since last years surgery but man I forgot how much it can hurt in your mid-section. I am sure the good 4 inch incision has something to do with that. Plus get this I ended up having double hernia surgery. While in there to fix my left side sports hernia the good doctor found a normal hernia up inside me as well. So I got twice as much mesh as I thought I would get !! Better now that later. I am hoping to be done with all this hernia surgery stuff.

All in all I have been doing good with the help of my great wife Sonya, the world best nurse and some good post surgery drugs. I have been laying low, sleeping and watching many movies as I rest up. I am pretty sick of watching T.V. for now. In fact I have been spending my time thinking about how to attack next years running season. Nothing like having the thing you love taken away to spur you on to wanting to get after it in full force. Plus with this great snow falling each day it makes me want to get out there so bad. I love running in the fresh snow.

Well I just wanted to check in and say hi and tell you all to enjoy your running !! I hope to be at it soon.

Great to hear it went ok. Looks like the snow is here to stay so you'll get to run in it before long!

Recover well.

Good to hear you are doing well.

I am guessing the little boy is doing mad dash repeats for the dessert rolls twice as much now.

Have you asked the Mrs. to dress up as a nurse yet?
