Slice and Dice
I've never had surgery before - other than wisdom teeth - so I'm a little nervous. Fortunately, I'm not worried about the four small scars it will leave on my belly - this gut was never going to win a beauty contest anyway. The incision in my navel, though - eww, I don't like to think about that one too much.
The surgery will be on Friday morning, and I'm just hoping I can make it till then without any more attacks (like the one this morning). Believe it or not, I'm actually tired of missing work!
This little adventure has made me appreciate the joys of showering, getting dressed and going somewhere, anywhere. And feeling good enough to do something around the house. I tell you, the poor bathroom is languishing for some attention. (Meanwhile, the functioning bathrooms are getting much more attention than they ever asked for.)
Maybe this weekend I'll be so pitiful from the post-surgery pain that Darwin will do anything to alleviate it - even work on the bathroom!
