I followed up with my hernia surgeon this morning and all my restrictions have been lifted and I can hold my 3 year old, Patrick, again! This was music to my ears, I missed the snuggles. I follow up with my ortho surgeon who did my big fusion surgery next week as well. I’m so excited to let him know how well I’m doing! My back is not too bad and my hernia was fixed nicely (apparently it was a good size), he’s probably going to be in shock because the last visit with him was looking pretty doom and gloom. So back to strengthening and stretching and easing into activities 🙂 Couldn’t be happier!
