It took about four months to get a surgery date, on Good Friday. My doctor was probably Muslim, so he probably wasn't cranky from fasting. He removed 400 CCs of stuff from my dangling bits, yeah, a beer can's worth of stuff.
Since then I've been recovering. The three inch suture has stopped bleeding, and he was serious about keeping the boys compressed. It's sort of a peninsula with poor drainage, and you don't want extra fluid staying there.
Fifteen_year_old was off this week, so it made the mornings much easier. I was able to sleep in until 9 most days.
About the only things I really liked to do was sit on the couch with an ice bag and read, or watch movies. I showed the kids Guardians of the Galaxy, and then we saw Deadpool and Grave of the Fireflies. Oh boy, that last one was depressing.
Work has been busy, I tried to get offshore help for my cow-orker, since a lot of what I was doing is just parsing a few gigs of log files, we didn't need an actual printer. We'll see how busy I am on Monday.
I didn't even look into medical leave, as I doubted HR could get it's act together enough, and I didn't want to lose any money. Money is still tighter than I prefer.
Mrs. Ha has about ten months in at her job, and while there's been some rocky moments, she's going okay. There are some short paychecks, due to a wind storm, a snow storm and some anxiety issues.
It's finally spring, and the weather is getting nicer!
