I’m sure they’ll figure it out soon. At least at this point your graft has had plenty of time to heal. Good luck going back to work. That’s something I’m hoping to do before long.
I hope everything goes okay with your surgery, and the hurricane for that matter. Out west we’re dealing with horrible wildfires. As I type this it looks like it’s snowing outside, but it’s actually ash and chunks of dirt from the fires in the mountains. The sun and moon have been red for days, and the smoke is so thick that it makes your eyes hurt just walking outside.
As far as my recovery goes, it hasn’t been all that bad. Sore to walk, and even worse to sit up straight, but those are avoidable. Three days of narcotics before switching to acetaminophen is a pretty good indication that it could be a lot worse. I go Friday morning for my checkup, which she said is basically urinating and then doing a bladder scan to see how much urine is still in there. Finally, a visit I don’t have to dread.
