Pee ess - Mom Paula is still home recuperating from her surgery. When she changed the bandage last night, she saw the incision was about 3 1/2 inches and it's on her lower abdomen. She tried to take a picture of it but we told her not to share it because it was gross! Her post op instructions tell her to take it easy, avoid lifting anything over 5 pounds (that means us!), not to bend over, and not to exercise for a week.
