Today was my first day back, and I had a bad day at the lab! Today was also the first day in which I spent sitting upright in a chair, at a desk as well. I had to leave early because the pain was so severe, I thought I was going to puke. I haven't had any pain meds, other than 1 Demerol since I've been home, and hope to not have to take any, but todays pain sent me into orbit! I'll be spending tomorrow at the very least, where I should have been today, back in bed recovering! As long as I'm flat on my back, I seem to bee okay, but when I'm upright, my guts shift and seem like they fall loose. This is probably about the case to, since during the laproscopy they literally seperate your outer "shell" from your gut sack. The pain was so bad, that breathing became a chore.

Hang in there Tim, Remember - pain is nature's way of telling you that you're still alive. [:D] .

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A bird will fall frozen dead from a bough, without ever having felt sorry for itself.

antiUSSA, Take it easy, and mend well. Every day is a gift. When you get a chance, get to know someone in a wheelchair, or has terminal cancer. They really understand what life is about. "What will they say, when they close the lid (on your casket)?" As for pain, maybe it was the Dalai Lama, or some other Zen guy, who said to "focus, and analyze the pain. When your brain completely tryies to scan it, this blocks the pain signals headed the opposite way." Seemed to help some for my knee surgery, since the Vicodins were useless, and morphine shots lasted maybe 20secs. Get well soon. What xanadu said, since we'll be dead a *long* time.

When I'm Passing "Stones" (which ain't sh*t compared to the pains you are feeling) I remember the Wifes Lamaz classes. The taught us about"Psychoprophalactics" or using the mind to control the pain. I thought they were going to tell me I was Crazy for not wearing a Rubber. Just a lil 'bit o humor for ya. Take care of yourself Tim, We need you here!!! Del

You should take it easy. The company will survive for a little while without you. I am sure that it is very difficult to concentrate on your work while you are in pain, therefore you are not doing yourslf or your company any good. Get well soon buddy.
