The veil has dropped! This surgery turned out to more serious than I imagined it was going to be, not that I regret my denial. There is a lot of swelling which I did not expect at all. Matter of fact, I look about 4 or 5 months pregnant which is sort of strange and Pluto Moon-ish. My whole stomach is just swelled out and it’s not possible to suck it in so I just sort of marvel.
I am going to see my daughter this week. She doesn’t know I’ve had surgery. I am going to show her the intense bruising for sure and I bet you she’s the only one who will want to see this stuff. The Taureans around here are hiding their eyes!
In whatever case, it hurts more than I thought it would as well. I can feel the staples exactly… at least a few of them. I understand they sort of staple blind which means they can get one in a bad place and I think I’ve got a couple staples that qualify. The staples dissolve but I don’t know when.
They tell you this stuff but who listens when you’ve got the Neptune fog machine going? Ah well.
