More later, but i am so sleepy, the worry got to me. The surgeon removed the drain this morning and felt confident the infection was gone. PTL. He did recommend delaying the surgery to let me gain a little strength back, so we are looking now at September 1st or 2nd. I don't know what that means on so many levels, but for now, I go to sleep and i am thankful to not have an extra attachment to my belly today (we called him pup).
