Glad to know that you are better and all went well. I was off last week, it was great!! But I sure had a lot to catch up on here at BOL.
Since you are without your pain pills, may I suggest something I found. I broke a bone in my foot last Monday (great timing, vacation and everyone at my house for Christmas). We went to New Orleans for a little R&R this weekend and I found that, given enough wine, the foot doesn't hurt at all
. I also discovered Godiva Chocolate liqueur, great alone or in your coffee.
I would recommend that you wait till you get home, the boss probably wouldn't understand that the wine was for medicinal purposes.
