Jody's hernia surgery

Jody's hernia surgery went well.

The doctor explained that often times, the incision made for a feeding tube does not heal properly - and in Jody's case, that definitely happened.

When Jody was in the hospital last year, she definitely lost weight. How much weight, we will never know for sure. The hospital beds that she was in fluctuated a lot in what they showed, but we came up with a figure of about 25 lbs from the time she got sick in October, 2008 until after her spinal surgery in May, 2009.

She is supposed to rest for 2-4 weeks but you can't keep Jody in bed...and she kept her hairdresser appointment this week. The straight hair in a ponytail look is gone and curls are in...for now!
