The Rant is Away/Surgery Update

HI EVERYBODY! OK, here's the quick rundown:

First, the good news. The removal of my gall bladder means I can again eat whatever I want. Consider: a mere twelve hours after my surgery, I had a breakfast consisting of two pancakes and two pieces of bacon. Prior to the operation, such a meal would have about caused me to collapse. However, I ate it without any ill effects whatsoever. So for that I am happy.

Now, the bad news, although it's not really that bad, and -- you get the idea. Anyhoo, the bad news is that I'm in pretty much constant pain because the surgeons DID have to operate, and all the entry-points have to heal. This is Not Fun. As a result, I'm taking things easy for a while.

So blogging will be light -- and probably non-existent -- over the next week. But I'll update things as time goes on.

Eeeek! Any kind of surgery is no good at all. I hope you start feeling better soon.

Remember, Ben, it's just another battle scar...for some reason, God has chosen you for some experiments on human tolerance for ironic ailments...keep your chin up! In 10,000 years, none of us will have gall bladders anyway so consider yourself ahead of the curve.

Does eating whatever you want help you feel more charitably toward the pain? ;)
