I will be having surgery on Wednesday, June 3rd, to (hopefully) fix a problem I have been suffering with for months. While it is not a major surgery (it will be done outpatient), it is going to be very painful for a while (but once I get through that I am hoping to be in much better shape). I don't know the time I will be in surgery yet (have to call tomorrow to see where I am in regards to the schedule). I do know I have a good surgeon who wants to help me get better. he will be checking on a couple of things while I am under and he "is in the neighborhood", so I may have a little more recuperation than I anticipate. But, even if I do, that just means I should come out of this that much better in the end. As an update, both my wife and I are still without jobs. I have activated my COBRA insurance coverage for this, though, thanks to the help of my folks. Also, I have lost a total of 61 pounds since the first of the year. I still have a long way to go, but every bit helps. Once I heal up from this I will be adding a daily walk to my health plan. Thanks for the prayers.
