I see London, I see France...

Yesterday, for the first time in a week, I was able to put on my underwear. I had gained so much water-weight and my whole body was so swollen that I couldn't fit into them before. A couple of days before that, I started eating small amounts. Over about 6 days, I had one banana and a cup of applesauce. That was all I could manage without gagging. I'm still queasy around food, but I'm getting better.

I'm still in pretty much pain...but things are easing up ever-so-slightly. Hopefully, by next week I'll be well enough for visitors, leaving the house, or at least talking to people on the phone.

This surgery has not been easy at all.

That all sounds just awful. I'm wishing you a speedy recovery (not sure if that's the right term), and sending you anti-bloating thoughts (though I will point out that perhaps this is God's way on inflicting a lifetime's worth of PMS on a man?).

Hope that at least made you grin. ;)

Hope the pain goes away quickly. Katie says your condition just put her being on bed rest in a whole new light. Hang in there! Also, my Mom has been reading your blog (from slinky-town) and hopes you feel better.

Hey, so...I just wanted to say that I miss you. I missed seeing you at the CAN games yesterday. I'll be honest, it was a pretty day for me. I humiliated myself in front of everyone. It would have been nice if you had been there. Just promise me you'll be at the CAN tournament and we can be friends again. On another note, I'm moving on Thursday. I want to hang out before I leave, ok? Miss you buddy.
