Thank you all for the good thoughts and wishes for my surgery. Everything went according to plan and I left New Jersey more confident than ever that I made the right decision. Recovery, as to be expected, has been uncomfortable but definitely easier than my c-section.
Surgery was around 11 am on Friday and lasted about an hour. In addition to placing the TAC, Dr. Davis was able to remove quite a bit of scar tissue from the large hematoma that I had after my c-section. I was up in my room by 3pm and by 7am Saturday morning they had removed my IV, catheter, and oxygen and I was up and moving around. I was discharged around 3pm and was home just in time to see Ginny before she went to bed. Boy, it feels good to be home :)
It feels especially good to come home to this!
And then we celebrated :)
