I officially survived my colectomy. I'm now officially one major organ down from where I started the year. Overall the surgery went well, and I'm recovering quite nicely. Short of not having a lot of energy, I'm doing quite well. I'm a lot more mobile than I thought I'd be (just not a lot of up and downs) and I feel pretty good. So I'm just slowly recovering, getting used to a lifestyle change, and getting psyched about my second surgery in about seven more weeks.
