I think I am going home today edit: I AM going home today.

Doctors are baffled at my rate of progress. Supposedly I am not supposed to be out of bed yet. I would have rather had this urinary catheter out before but they won't keep me until next week just for that. So long as I have a reasonable supply of pain meds (they cut through my abdominal wall and it hurts like hell to clear my throat) I should be fine.

I am tired of sleeping in a chair. Home will be good for my recovery.

12. They've gone way too far with this "opioid crisis" BS. It has gotten to the point

where people with legitimate pain management needs cannot get the pain meds they need to maintain any quality of life. Wal-Mart (at least in my area) will not fill a prescription for pain meds with a supply longer then one week. I hope your doctor hasn't fallen to the pressure of no pain meds.

OK, sorry for the tangent rant.

Good luck in your recovery. Very glad to see you are ahead of schedule!

13. I very much agree with everything you said

Much like "gun control" these kind of prohibitions and restrictions only serve to hurt and penalize the truly in need. I'm not a junkie, and I don't plan on becoming one, but they have cut into my thorax through my abdominal wall, which is what you use to breathe. Without pain management I stand an increased risk of pneumonia, due to an inability to inhale and exhale deeply enough to fully clear my lungs.

Just like guns, if I really wanted large quantities, I'd go to the street and find anything I ever wanted. No law will stop that.
