post surgery.

Surgery was supposed to go fairly quick and easy.  A 3 or 4 hours in the OR and I'm out with an ileostomy bag on my side for a couple of months.  Maybe a day or two of recovery in the hospital to make sure everything went fine.

I went in, the anesthesiologist suggested an epidural and I accept his suggestion.  Seven hours later I'm in recovery with a huge wound on my stomach as well as the ileostomy bag.  Turns out that it's really hard to do laproscopic surgery on a three hundred pound man.

The next week in the hospital is a blur of clear fluids, morphine, a catheter, and doctors looking at the wound in my side with a worried look on their face.
