Alan had his hernia surgery today. They found the hernia had grown quite a bit and apparently they found another one as well! They patched up both and promised us he’ll be as good as new.
I dropped the kids at school then met Alan at the hospital. We hung out in the hospital room for a few hours until the OR was available. Then they gave me a pager and sent me on my way. I hung out, had lunch, tried to do some work, made friends with a teacher in the waiting room, and generally kept myself busy until they paged me. Order up!
After the anaesthesia wore off we headed out. Home by 5:00. The kids went to an after-school program for the day and I picked them up once Alan was settled on the couch.
I have no catchy ending for this. Sorry. Tired! Send warm wishes to Alan for a speedy recovery. I suspect he’ll be up and at ’em in no time!
