John Is Doing Very Well

John has been steadily feeling better and having less pain as each day goes past. The bruising has been surprisingly minimal thus far and we were able to remove the waterproof bandage yesterday. We can't see the incision because of the strips that cover it but it appears to be in good shape and comes in between 1 and 2 inches in length. These strips will likely fall off on their own in the next few days.

Today, he has not had to take any ibuprophen for pain and his major complaint is that it is itching. This, of course, is a very good sign. I am guessing that if he didn't do manual labor for a living, he would indeed have been able to return to work today. However, I'm not sure why anyone would want to return to work after surgery if they were still not allowed to drive. Anyway, he is well on the path to recovery and I expect him to be good as new and ready to get back to a regular routine by the time we go see the doctor on Friday. He's moving around very well including minimal pain when bending and if it weren't for lack of motivation I do believe he would have mowed the lawn like he said. (Don't worry it's a riding mower... LOL)

Anyway, thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. I do believe the doctor will get a little bit of his credibility back in my eyes although I'm still mad about him not telling us about the driving thing and will likely ask him about it on Friday.
