Tomorrow morning I'm going into surgery for a hernia that's been bothering me for a few years now.
My hernia is larger than normal, it's called an abdominal incisional hernia and has gradually gotten worse over the past few years. It's in the area I had an emergency appendectomy over ten years ago. Because my appendix had burst the doctor had to leave the wound open back then to drain properly and heal on it's own. The result of that is that the abdominal wall was never at full strength again.
I'm not asking for sympathy, just asking for prayers and positive thoughts tomorrow. For my wife especially as she's feeling a lot more anxiety over the whole ordeal than I am.
Thanks my friends.
Update: I'm home now, recovering from the surgery, which went well. Still not 100%, but getting better every day. Thanks to all of you for your concern, prayers and well-wishes. Much appreciated!
