Operation follow-up:

Got out of the hospital Friday afternoon/evening. I was in surgery for 2+ hours instead of 30 minutes, but that was due to....complications. Apparently I not only have PCOS, I also have endometriosis, which was spreading and untreatable except by surgery (And I may now be infertile, too). Icky-poo, indeed. And there was an earthquake during the thing, which I think I remember, but I'm not altogether sure. Oh, and I can't drink anything carbonated until next Tuesday because the doctors say it will make me "gassy." And no, I'm not joking. But at this point, I don't care much; the pain is bad to the point of being unable to cough, sneeze, laugh, or sit up on my own. Stupid abdomen. I actually started sobbing at dinner because my dad made a joke and laughing hurt terribly. And the doctors are probably rejoicing right now, because this evening I had my first post-op BM.

Oh, and I've lost another 5 pounds. I'm down to 140. This is becoming a bit ridiculous. My pants are all way too big now; never mind wearing a 10, I could probably fit into an 8 when the post-op swelling goes down.

I won't be back for J-Term, but I will be back by the end of it--does that make sense? I'm going to have my mom discuss things with the housing dept. to see if I can get settled back in before the dorms officially open for second semester. And Whitney, I will be doing my utmost to ensure a fun time over J-Term break.

On a sad note, my mother has forbidden me to be rude to people I don't like, darn it.

And on that note, I shall retire to a recumbent or semi-recumbent position as it is more comfortable for me; and I may fall asleep...

I can't believe you just posted your weight on the internet. You are certainly a uniquety among women.

Sure, I'll write you something, though it won't get to you for a while, and I don't know who would play it. I appreciate the 'comission' however, because I have no problem writing if I have a reason for doing it.

Hey Two, looking forward to seeing you when you get back from break :) I'm intending to make more of an effort to get to campus and visit this coming semester, instead of walling myself off here offcampus playing WoW, so with any luck we'll be seeing each other more often. Hope you get to feeling better soon - I'll be praying that you recover as quickly as possible. That way, you'll be able to get back into playing D&D so you can take your frustrations about this health stuff out on poor innocent NPCs :)

Hey you. Do something interesting. This has become sufficiently boring.
