A little something extra

I find it kind of embarrassing to say I have a hernia. Maybe because it's an odd word that sounds a little like hemorrhoid. Who knows, I might be the only person to think this.

In any case, that's what I have. (A hernia, not hemorrhoids.) I am having it fixed the Monday after Thanksgiving at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

On Wednesday, I go to Boston for pre-op instructions and will then probably be stuck in traffic for eight hours on my way back to Western Massachusetts.

I have an umbilical hernia, a fairly common problem and one that can be attributed to pregnancy, obviously a delayed reaction on my part.

Thanks, kids.

It's a day surgery to be followed by some pain and no running, tennis or yoga for at least a month. I should be able to walk the dog. Maddie will be happy.

Just a little something extra to keep life interesting.

It's always something, isn't it? I hope the surgery goes smoothly and you are back on the tennis courts in no time flat.

No, I think your free-associating subconscious got's the kids that give you the hemorrhoids...because,when they want to be (i.e. most of the time) they are a pain in the butt.

The hernia is just to let you know what the "average bear" has to contend case you were wondering.

Oy! and double Oy!

Happy Thanksgiving...for what Im not sure, but have a happy!
