So How Am I Doing?

One month after surgery, more or less?

I saw the surgeon for a follow-up today. He says I'm doing well. He says probably one day I'll be able to eat bread again, not to mention meals bigger than a quarter-cup in size.

Meanwhile, the heartburn is entirely gone, and most of the surgical pain as well. Physically, I'm almost entirely recovered -- I don't get tired walking from my car to my office, for instance, and I can lift things again.

Also, I have once again started drinking coffee. What a relief that is.

So I'm better, even if our nation is fucked.

Yay for great recovery! Boo for the nation going to hell.

Plus, thanks to Obamacare, my insurance is much better. This surgery won't cost me nearly as much as my shoulder surgery did, four years ago.

I'm glad to hear you're recovering well! And yay for coffee, elixir of the gods!

The nation would be going to hell even if you were having a bad recovery, so at least we should celebrate your good recovery!

I agree! Let's celebrate every glimmer of good news we can find.
