Recovery going well

The surgery on Thursday went great.  The hospital I was at was fantastic.  The staff was great so much so that I sent John home to buy milk for the kids breakfast (we had run out the night before), and let them know PE had been cancelled.  He got back to the hospital while I was in surgery.  I was back in my recovery room by 10 and slept till 11.  They discharged me at 11:30.  Came home and slept.  I went off the pain meds Friday night.  Went to church today and even went for a quick spin behind the wheel.  The final product is much nicer than the expanders were.  I feel NORMAL!  Finally.  Now I will enjoy Christmas with my family.

I'll be gone for awhile

With surgery Thursday, and Christmas right around the corner and school work not being done unless I sit on them  I won't be posting anything.  I have nothing interesting to post anyways.

Long time no blog

I have not updated in awhile because I have actually been feeling really well.  I had my last expansion the day before Thanksgiving.  I have my exchange surgery set for December 17th.  It is outpatient.
Life for now has returned to normal.  The kids are schooling again and we should wrap up week 15 right before Christmas.  The Christmas Tree is up and the house mostly decorated.  Life is about as normal as it can be right now.  I'm looking forward to putting all this behind me.
