Surgery Tomorrow

Ray is having surgery tomorrow morning to correct a hernia he has developed.  It is amazing how this procedure has changed in the last several years.  It will be done on an outpatient basis and he should be home before noon.  He will be off work for thirty days, since he can't lift any thing heavier than fifteen pounds..  I am thinking this will give us a taste of what it will be like when he retires.  I am pretty sure we will enjoy it a lot. 
But first we have to get him repaired.  The doctor will place a piece of mesh over the spot to hold the intestine in place behind the muscle. I am not clear on whether or not there is going to be a small incision, or if it will be like a laparoscopy.  I will find all that out tomorrow.  Good thoughts are requested.
