Last Friday I has surgery to repair an umbilical hernia. I checked in at 8 and was home by noon with an inch long incision just above my belly button and tender abs. Since I've of course been taking it easy, NOT teaching, and lifting no more than my 20 pound one-year-old as I heal.
This morning I decided while Brea was taking her morning nap, I was going to start to ease back into some yoga. Though sore and bruised, I'm happy to report my abdominal muscles still work! Following about 20 minutes of gentle moving and stretching, my whole body is feeling better. I'm already looking forward to some time back on the mat again tomorrow!
