I was really happy with my bench day, because that was the first time I benched bodyweight since I had my left pec reattached, and I did it for 3 reps pretty easily. It was 11 months to the day since the surgery, and my goal had been to hit bodyweight bench within a year of the surgery, so that's awesome!

As far as squat day, that's the first time since I've been back that I got under weight that actually scared me a little, since it's been so long since I moved heavy (for me) weights in the squat, but it wasn't a problem. Don't get me wrong, it still felt really heavy to me, but it felt good.
