Hi everyone, surgery went great and doc took a look see in my abdomen and it was clean. They did end up cutting a little more than he said. I have a 12 inch incision and about 30 staples or so. I am very very bloated and 7 lbs heavier than I was friday morning of the surgery. I can't wait until this heals. But the hernia is fixed and the lymphocele is drained. I just hope all the weight isn't from my body not absorbing the fluids from the lymphocele.

Thursday the 18th is the surgery for my daughter, I hope I am feeling much better as I plan on being there for her and Todd. They are removing the tumor that has been pressing on her brain.

Hope all of you are doing well. Take Care adn God Bless.
