Thanks once again for the kind words everyone. The MO agreed w/ the civy doc and gave me two weeks of medical leave, so "OP: Lay in bed and watch tv" begins today...
Totally Mike, I'll make sure to give you a heads up if I'm able to make it back to Ed for this summer... I've been babying my kidneys lately anyway, and look how they repay me? Time to toughen them up so this doesnt happen again haha.
