In Which I Am Cut Open

Sunday, I got a wicked stomach ache. The worst ever. Enough to send me to the ER. Whom, after 8 hours of tests and dopping me beyond reason, admitted me, and took out a non-essential organ which was apparently causing all the trouble.

Anyhow, a few notes: I am in all kinds of pain from the surgery. It gets barable every once in a while, but, then goes back to hurting like nobody's business. I am about to take more pain meds, which will turn me into a bilthering idiot for the next 2 - 4 hours, but I wanted to write about what happened first.

In kick me while I'm down notes: I got two rejections for Smashing while I was in the hospital. Oh well, no biggie. The search continues.

This is not a week to be out of work. Again, oh well. I'm not going to push going back. I need to recover first. When I can go a solid hour without pain, I'll consider myself better. But not before then.

So this is all to say I'm home, and I believe I'm getting better. For example, I could shower tody (thank goodness), though I still feel like hell.
