(Link>)The return of Hopalong Cassidy :)

Just call me two-cane Kayla. The surgery went fine, and I'll see my podiatric surgeon for my first follow-up visit this Friday. Unfortunately, he told me that it would be best if I stayed off my left foot for two weeks! I had to call the Minyan Rimonim leining and haftarah coordinator and give him ample warning that I won't be able to lein the Maftir aliyah and chant Haftarat Rosh Chodesh on January 20, after all. !#$%^&!!!!!!!!!!!

Otherwise, so far, so good.

When I get the lab results, I'll let you know.

Feeling (almost) no pain, I'm happy to report.

For those of you who might wish to add me to your mi-sh'berach (get-well prayer) list, my Hebrew name is Léah bat Ester v'Ozer. (I've given both my mother's and my father's names, though traditionalists use only the mother's name when praying for someone's health. Please feel free to pray in accordance with your own minhag/custom). Thanks for your thoughts and/or prayers.

Thanks, Elie.

I want to my podiatric surgeon this morning to have my bandaging loosened. (Apparently, some surgical patients experience post-operative swelling and some don't, so it's difficult to determine how tight to make the bandaging immediately after surgery). Since the bandage itself was causing pain, my foot feels much better. I'm happy to report that, thus far, I haven't had nearly as much pain as I was expecting.

Thanks, Mark. Thus far, I'm nearly pain-free, thank goodness.

I should probably add my Hebrew name to this post, in case anyone wants to put in a good word for me upstairs.

Raggedymom, thanks. It is, indeed, a relief to have the surgery behind me. At the moment, I'm in very little pain, much to my pleasant surprise. So far, so good.
