Yep, I'm back south now. In fact, I've been at work for most of the day. And I'm getting very tired.
But the big news is my appointment yesterday. They took the staples out, and I stayed together. I really had expected to open back up. But I didn't and I still haven't. So I'm going to take it very easy, but in theory, I should heal this time around.
Since they went in the same place as last time, this means I'll have a much smaller scar then I would have had, too. Longer, but much thinner.
Give me another few weeks, and I should be as good as new and all this mess will finally be behind me.
For the first time in months, I'm beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel. And I don't think it's a train!
