Around OakMeadows

Around OakMeadows

Hernia repair surgery went well.  It was done by laparoscope so there was no large abdominal incision.  I went in at 7:30 and was out by 10. I was ready to leave at noon but unfortunately my bladder was not. It was somewhat functional by 2 pm in that when I stood up, I peed all over myself and I continued in that mode until nearly midnight when I started gaining some control.  I spent the rest of the night washing towels and sheets. I don't know what caused the delay in function but how thankful I am that the plumbing is working correctly once again.  

The news regularly irritates me so this is nothing new. But I must say I am tired of hearing how frightened Americans are by the terrorists in Paris and San Bernardino. 
I'm not living in fear of terrorists and I flat don't know anyone who is. We regularly kill thousands on the highways and thousands more with guns so I figure guns or cars have a much greater chance of causing harm to me or my family than terrorists. Get a grip.

We went to see the new Star Wars. I was really disappointed.  It was such a rehash. The bright spots were the two new characters. 

Today is the Winter Solstice. I'll be glad to have a little more daylight.  Hope everyone has a happy holiday.
