Thanks for the well wishes.
The dog is going to her grandparents for the day. They are about 40 minutes the other directions.
I have to be at the hospital at 8am.
Doctor says about 6 hours from when I get there and the time I get to leave.
I have to do some scrubbing tonight and in the morning.

Good luck to you.  
I had a double hernia repair many, many years ago, and before you know it, you'll be as good as new!


  
YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

If it wonít roll, its not a log; itís still a tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not trees.

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, theyíre burned, and you canít fix them.  So donít burn the cookies.

Sawing is fun for the first couple hundred boards.

Hope everything goes well for you. I had one 20 years ago and no problems since. My recovery was fast and easy.

Chet, that cracks me up!😂 I had an older friend that was in a motorcycle accident, and had his pelvis broken. He said the worst part in all of it was that area turned, "jet black"! I said ,"my gosh, that must've been terrible!". "Grown men saw it and wept" was his reply😂

Just got home.
It was a 2 hour surgery, just like he said. He found nothing else wrong.
Not bad right now, but when all that local stuff wears off!!!!!
I just took a pain pill too.
Coughing is an issue.  :o
I held onto my left groin area as I was coughing when the nurse was reading the discharge papers. Nurse said, That's what you need to do.
I told her, I've been holding My Buddy for a month now. Glad he is gone.
Lift nothing heavier than a coffee cup!!!!
I am on The Road to recovery!!!!!

randy, things are going well, pain wise.
Wife went and bought me crocs, foot wear and kinda like pajamas bottoms to wear when I left the hospital. That helped out a lot. 
I'm a boot and jean kinda guy. Or was until all this happened.
Hard to bend over. One leg is straight out behind to pick something off the floor. which I don't do much.
All my morning stuff use to be in the bottom draw, it's on the bathroom sink now.
Just feels stiff as someone posted here. Ice bag is on me now. Bed is the hardest to get out of.
I have an office chair that I am sitting on in front of the computer. That helps to lower myself down, same as the arms on the crouch.
Walking is not much better now either.
I feel much better, mind wise now. All the Doctors and everyone in the office kept telling me if I am in a lot of pain and start to vomit go to the E room!!!  
A person can die from that.
That death threat is gone now. :D

Yep - everything in great moderation and soft foods to keep 'everything' soft for a few days..
If it hurts - it's talking to you and telling you something - Listen to it!!
Happy Healing!

I asked the Dr about what I could do. He said nothing. Just walking would help the most. I questioned him again and said I want to make that part stronger, and he told me there was nothing that could be done for that.
Just so you know I have some black and blue down there too.  :o
