update

August 20, 2009

Had hernia surgery yesterday. The nerve block ALMOST worked but they missed a couple of sections b/c my spinal column is not as visible as other people’s (that’s code for I have a fat back).

So I woke up in a rather impressive amount of pain. Moving around is an adventure in “how will this hurt”. Eunice has been taking very lovely care of me. In general it feels like I was kicked repeatedly in my lower right abdomen by someone who thoroughly enjoys kicking.

I’m taking the rest of this week off to keep from being useless and dazed. I’m stopping the percocet and moving toward ibuprofen now. I’ve been around on irc and jabber a bit – but if anyone needs anything email me, directly. I’m looking at direct email a lot sooner than indirect email and I still have a metric arseload to sift through.

We have a new yum, createrepo, yum-metadata-parser and urlgrabber in rawhide and for all you people with fun ssl-based repos you’ll definitely like the urlgrabber and yum changes.

Count down starts today: 27 more days until I can ride a bike again.

  1. Nothing like pain requiring massive drugs. Good times.

    Hope you feel better soon. When you’re sufficiently recovered, we should all go out for some Durham dining adventure.
