in a few hours, a week ago today, i went into surgery. when i compare the trauma of the 24 hours i dealt with post op to what i will deal with this week, it is pretty mind-blowing. how much difference short time can mean - how much i didn't know about my own body even, that today i am that much more intimate with.

i've made it back home - i can do my exercises to hopefully maintain flexibility and minimize scar tissue, and i am trying to cut back on my painkillers as much as possible. pretty amazing, how much the body can deal with - more than the mind, i think.

being back in work this week has been rough - my training was canceled, and i feel like i got tossed headfirst into the deep end, in a suit of chain mail. it is getting better (my ability to cope) but the rate and fury of work is not.

thanks everyone, for the encouragement, well wishes, and friendship. i appreciate it more than you know.
