"I am Smurf-Vader! And you better behave or you will be in deep Kim Chi!"
UPDATE: saw all 3 surgeons Friday and they all say that everything's going well. I did a lot of walking and even more car-riding and faired better than I'd expected to. Hopefully this is a sign that the worst is behind me...or at least behind my behind. As soon as I can sit straight without hurting I can drive. (yipee) And we got a letter saying that my short term disability claim was approved! This is very good news indeed!
