We went on our BIG cruise the last two weeks of April. It was fantastic. We met the nicest people, and saw some beautiful countries. Our favorite place was Honfleur, France. It is a small, dockside town that looks like it did in the 15-1600's. (Well, other than cars etc, of course) We also went to Plymouth England where we saw the Pilgrim steps, which is where the Mayflower left from, and Cobh/Cork Ireland. That's the place we were most excited about, but it turned out to be the least exciting part of the trip. We were out in the middle of nowhere and did not book a tour, so we really missed seeing Ireland at it's finest. Overall, we ate too much, slept too little and met a wonderful family from Canada that we spent a lot of time with. It was a great vacation, but you know what they say...it's always best when you come back home. Thanks for asking!
As for the "hernia", I called my surgeon to make sure I was doing the right thing, and she actually has me coming in to see her, instead of a GI I have never met. I mean, she IS a GI too, DUH. I don't know where my head was. Well, yes I do. I didn't want to bother her in fear that it was all in my head, made up in my wild imagination. But, she said that's what it sounds like, so I am hanging on to that thought. Is it weird to hope for a hernia? Specially when it could be so much worse...??? Of course, she was going on vacation, so I can't see her until June 20, but she did give a script for good meds, so that has helped. I just wish I could see her and get it all over with. My brain needs an answer.
I am so glad you are doing so well. I am fine other than the chest/rib pain. Knees have finally gotten back to about 90%, so that's one less thing to worry about.
We are heading out to Williamsburg/Virginia Beach area this weekend for a 4 day vacation. It'll be nice to miss a couple days at work. We are swamped.
Take care of yourself,
Today is a new day. Congratulations, you are already a survivor!
