Well it's been 1 week since my surgery. On day 3 they sent me to rehab hospital. I will be home on Wed. Physical therapy 3 times a day. Was able to use walker today.I"m still taking a norco every 4 hours. First couple of days were a nightmare but for the most part I"m feeling much better. Wife made pot of chili for Bears game last sunday and had a bunch of friends up so that was fun. Can't wait to get home.

They let me come home today and be it ever so humble theres no place like home. :) The rehab has been going really good. The hospital called 3 hours after I was home and said the physical therapist would be here starting tomorrow, I couldn't believe it.i will have home visits untill I get staples out on 14 or up too 1 month then I can drive myself. 26 staples. bandage over incision is 4" X 14" (big cut ). will post more later
