Hospiblogging, Day 4: Did Anyone Get The Number Of That Truck?

I'm out of surgery -- the doctors squeezed me in early in the schedule. So far as I can tell, it looks like it went well. It hurts, but it's a different kind of pain; it feels more like a typical lower-back muscle ache. The shooting pain down the right leg is gone, and I was able to stand for a few minutes in the last half-hour or so.

The prevailing opinion is that I will be released sometime tomorrow or Sunday at the latest, depending on some secondary considerations. Anesthesia causes the bowels to go to sleep, so we have to make sure they return to normal function first. I'll know more by tomorrow morning.

In the meantime, I'll be enjoying that cleal-liquid diet that I've been looking forward to having all week. I'm very encouraged, and with any luck I'll be home very soon!
