Will it hurt, Doc?

Please forgive my mood, I have this dumb surgery in a few hours - around 8:30 a.m. EST to be exact.  Of course, hospitals always have a "hurry up and wait" policy so I have to be there at 6:30 a.m.  That's when I usually do my yoga, man I'm going to miss it.  Post-op I won't be able to do anything for a few months but if my Doc says I can't use the computer I just won't pay him.  Wait.  I have to, I'm disabled so I have Medicaid.  That means, YOU'RE paying him, right?  So what did MY taxes pay for anyway? 

It's a ventral hernia and starts at my sternum then ends at my navel so it's vital to have it repaired.  Get this, they call it an "encarcerated" hernia.  It's in jail I tell ya!  Different spelling but same idea ... Oh, and the umbilical part by the navel pushed out HALF of my belly button - just HALF!  So now I have an innie AND outy, how many can say that?  I have to laugh because hospitals and injuries make me such a baby that my mind begs a release, a joke, a smile at the risk of more wrinkles, anything but to think about that anesthesia and scapel!  Have to be adult about this - grow a few years overnight.  Wish me luck!  I love you all!!!  :-)

You're in my prayers tonight - But I know you will be fine! And if that doctor tells you you can't play on the computer, tell him the worst that could happen is carpal tunnel and then he'd just get more buisness.. Lol..  I know you will be fine...

Better late than never - that is my motto!  Your surgery must be behind you by now and it is my wish that all went well for you.  Your new job is one of HEALING!
You realize that this is entirely up to you and your body - and, of course, we cannot exclude God.  One day at a time, Luddie - may each day be a positive step forward.
