Good bye hernia!

Today is surgery day.
Son Matthew is going in for a procedure today... getting a sports hernia fixed. 
He gets to have a little piece of mesh-like fabric sewn into him to mend his tear...
sort of just like mending a tear in a pair of jeans.
 
It's bothered him for sometime several years since his college baseball days,
 being more bothersome as of late.
Couldn't be from riding his bike across the state of Iowa, participating in a half triathlon, climbing the steps of the Incline, playing softball, or the hundreds of rounds of golf he's golfed this summer...
 
His sweet girlfriend Megan is filling in for Mom today... taking him to surgery, bringing him home, etc...
Thanks Megan!

I talked to him on the phone last evening. The main topic and concern wasn't surgery, how big the incision, recovery, how many days of work he would miss, etc, etc... but the fear and unknown of what all they were going to shave, pre-op!! 
He even offered to pre-shave...
save a nurse the hassle,
you know!
Speed things up a bit...
 
That's my Matthew.
 
Wishing you a speedy recovery,
 sonny boy.
Love,
Mom
