Status Update

Hi, guys!  I just wanted everyone to know that things are going well.  Tobie had her surgery yesterday, and everything went as it should.  While they were in there, the surgeons discovered that she also had a case of endometriosis, a nasty condition where material from the uterus escapes into the rest of the pelvis.  So, now we finally know why she's been in increasing degrees of excruciating pain for the last couple of years while knuckleheaded doctors told her she was just being a whiny hypochondriac because they couldn't find anything obvious.  Jerks.  Anyway, she'll be coming home later today and things should start settling down to normal.  Thanks to everyone for the good wishes!

    1. Thanks, Doc! A lot of the problems she's been having are often caused by endometriosis, so I think she'll be a lot healthier now.

  4. Excellent news indeed! Must be a great relief...here's to much better health for Tobie here on out.

    And as far as bonehead doctors go, dealt with a few of them myself...ain't the profession grand at times? Again, really glad it worked out as it should!
