After 15 days away, I am finally back home. My sutures have been removed, but the middle of the incision opened up so I have to be very careful about not getting dirt in it and getting another infection. I have to continue the antibiotic ointment until the wound is totally healed. It's great to be back and see all Dave has done and all the bushes and flower gardens are blooming! From now on, hopefully the blog posts will be more entertaining.
