View Full Version : Yeah, I have a surgical date!

I got tired of waiting (been almost 2 weeks) so called the doctor's office about my test results yesterday. The barium enema test came back normal so she penciled me in for April 21 to have my colon reattached. :woohoo:
I don't suppose too many people get excited about having surgery, but it will be great to have everything back in its proper place and no more bag to deal with. I won't lose out on all my summer swimming just a month or so and will still have the hot months to swim every morning. They said 4-7 days hospital stay and 6-8 weeks recoup time.

That will make me strong and healthy by our planned trip to Houston to see the Cubs take on the Astros (huge Cubbie fans at our house) in Sept. This is their year, no more goat curse!!!!
Thanks for all your good thoughts!
