Under the Knife

It's probably not so rare in California to have someone sign your body with a permanent marker, but yesterday was a first time for me.  According to new federal guidelines, surgeons must sign near where they are about to cut, hence my doctor's autograph on my right quad -- the side of the hernia he was about to fix.

Thanks to everybody who sent good vibes and words of support.  Apparently the surgery was a success, although you'll have a tough time convincing my extremely sore abdomen of that for at least a few days...

Despite the discomfort, I'm grateful for my insurance, pain meds, and access to some of the best doctors around.
