It has been a long month, already. Dennis had surgery on the 4th to correct a congenital defect with his kidney. It was suppose to be a simple 1 to 2 days in the hospital and a week off work but it turned into 8 days in the hospital and 3 weeks off work. Complication from the surgery included low blood pressure, nausea, a blown internal stitch (because of the nausea,) anemia and dehydration. The days and nights in the hospital allowed me to complete a cowl but kept me from my workout goals.
