Procedure complete! All went as planned, 2.5 hours in OR and home 2 hours after that. Tough time coming out of anesthesia (more drugs helped though) and evidently I knee'd the nurse and gave her a black eye (what was she doing down there anyways :o ).

Found it better to be standing/walking last night than it was laying....sitting is just brutal.

Had the follow up today and no infection...next follow up on 9/17.

I'm just sooooo happy I elected to do this...can't get too complacent though.

Special thanks to Chrissy, lo419 and justme for the thoughts, prayers and wishes!

BTW...appears I don't need a raised toilet seat or walker.....the grabber is must!
