"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Vic's Surgery

Vic's carpal tunnel release surgery went perfectly. He was sent home with vicodin to manage the pain for the first few days. His doc says pain relief and tingling should happen quickly but, because of the severity of his carpal tunnel syndrome, it will take up to a year for the numbness to completely go away.

I am glad his surgery went well! I'll be sending good vibes his way for a speedy recovery!

I also hope he defies the odds and the numbness goes away much sooner than a year. Wow. That is a long time!

So glad it's over.

And, um, about that Vicodin?

I like vicodin. I always run out before I want to . . . :0)

Anyway - so glad to hear that all went well with the surgery.

I know so many people who have had that surgery and it is a long recovery. I do hope he feels better soon :) So I guess no blogging for him huh?

A whole year?! That's craziness!

Good to hear that it all went well, though.
