All is well! Praise the Lord.
Dave's surgery was straightforward, the hernia repaired, and no sign of weakness on the other side, so very good. He is a bit uncomfortable, to be expected, but is taking his pain meds, and is already feeling bored because he is sore and can't really do anything.
Nancy, my neighbor, called me a bit ago, she had knee replacement surgery today, she is doing very well, in fact, I could not believe how perky she sounded on the phone. I will pop up and visit her tomorrow on my way home from work.
So thank you everyone for your prayers, they were answered.
