They Have Rebuilt Her

Hello everyone, this is Paul “the husband” reporting in to let everyone know that Meryl is recovering well.
She reported to the hospital at 5:oh my G-d 30, and answered the same questions from different people 14 times. We were originally told that surgery was going to be 2 hours, however, she was rolled into surgery at 7:20, it started at 7:45 and she was out at 8:30. The doctor reported that it was very uneventful. Meryl woke up around about 9:00 and we are on our way home by 10:15.
After arriving home, she rested uncomfortably in bed sporting a very stylish headband which is very reminencent of a 1980’s red Day-Glo “Valley Girl” headband. After an extended nap, she is awake now and feeling better, and has ceased to say “It hurts! I’m very dizzy! Why did I do this!”
She goes back to the doctor tomorrow for her surgery follow up and either she or I will report back.

  1. I’m glad to hear (ha!) that you came through the initial process without any complications, I hope the rest of it is free of complications as well. Boring story, but happy ending that way!
