Michael's Post Op Appt x4

Guess who went to work today without a doctor's release? 

Guess who had his convalescent leave extended by a week at 1400?

I love Dr. V. ::snort:: She's a hoot. She took one look at Michael and said, "Is this how this works? Who released you to go back to work? I thought that was my job." ::snort:: 

He just smiled his chaplain smile. 

Bottom like - GREAT appointment today! She said she loves us but  doesn't want to see us in the office again - she'll see us at chapel! WOO HOO! 

Michael's liver numbers are "almost normal". His pancreas numbers are  elevated but  going down! So....things are good....all expect them to continue to decrease. She did give him a lecture about nutrition.....seems those pesky labs can show he's not been getting protein and she says that is only going to slow his recovery...and they don't want to see any more weight

He's home for another week - concentrating on eating, doing what he can and resting when needed. Shhhh.....don't tell anyone but if he really gets to feeling like he needs to be at work, I can drive him in for a couple of hours of weeding through email....

I think we're putting this behind us...which is a very good place to put the month of March. March has has been challenging since moving to Misawa.

Now Mike, follow the doc's orders; we don't want to have you court martialed. Hasn't surgery been enough excitement?
