CUTS LIKE A KNIFE
Unfortunatly, the six pack had to be removed also
Aint this pretty? After feeling a "slight bump" in my abdomen a few months ago, I decided to go visit the doc and see what it was all about. At first they thought it might be a mild hernia or overdeveloped muscles (yeah right) After a few tests it was determined to be a tumor. Benign, Thank God! So, I had to get that thing outta there! After being a little nervous at first, I managed to get through the surgery with a little help from my friends. Thanks everyone!
Turns out, it was pretty big. How big? This big.
Actual tumor was a MacGregor
The Schandings brought me a DVD player, DVDs, and an assortment of books, The Divines brought be the National Inquirer and more mags, Jennifer's Mom brought me a baloon and candy, Matt and Kara brought me puzzle games and candy,and Jon brought me a Starting Lineup figure of my favorite player (Mike Schmidt) and my Mom brought more love. I felt blessed.
Kara and Matt brought me this. In a little while, I will be visiting Kara in the hospital. I gotta bring something real good now!
I also had another friend at my side at all times. Johnny Morphine. I couldn't have got through it without him!
It also helped having my own private nurse there with me all the time. Jennifer pulled some strings and got me into a private room. She helped so me so much and I am lucky to have her. Thanks Babe!
