Mrs. Paco had surgery on Monday to have some excess bone growth removed; it apparently was caused by her hip replacement surgery last November. That surgery went fine, but she started to grow more bone than needed and it was pushing into the muscle tissue (on the CT scan, the thing looked like a holster for a snub-nose .38, so it was causing her a lot of discomfort).
This most recent surgery went fine, but she has been in a considerable amount of pain, which the doctors were finally able to bring under control with some kind of pump that's attached to the affected area via a catheter and which injects a local anesthetic on a time-release plan.
Anyway, I'm out this week with limited access to the computer, so hope you all are having a good one. In my absence (and, for that matter, even when I'm not absent), I highly recommend a daily dose of Veeshir's cogitations over at DoublePlusUndead. You'll laugh, you'll cry, your blood will boil, and you'll come away both entertained and informed about our world's delirious descent into madness and stupidity.
