Gut Rumbles

June 12, 2006


I think my friend catfish may getting sliced and diced today. Or maybe that's gonna happen NEXT Mondy. He wasn't very precise in his post about it. Either way, I'm gonna call tonight and ask Nancy to give me the scoop.

From what I understand, hernia operations were a lot worse once upon a time than they are now. You can get cut, spend a couple of hours all groggy in the recovery room, piss in a bottle for a nurse and then go home the same day. I'm sure that Nancy will take care of him, but if he needs a ride, I'll come get him if he calls me.

I don't have many good friends anymore. Cat's too mean to die, so I ain't worried about THAT happening. But that knife stuff in a hospital ain't NEVER any fun. Bejus knows I speak from personal experience on that subject.

Good luck, buddy. If you need any help from me, just ask and you've got it.

But if you DIE... well, I'm gonna make a move on your old lady. I've ALWAYS liked her, and if you ain't around anymore, well... someone needs to console her in her grief and I can't think of a better person than ME to do it. What are friends for?

THAT'LL make you think twice about dyin,' won't it?


"But if you DIE... well, I'm gonna make a move on your old lady."

For just once, be the gentleman you aren't,
and give it a day, eh ?

6 years back - had my second hernia corrected. The first (in '69) was a b*tch.

In 2000 is was a relative breeze in and out in one day. About one week of a really sore gut, a second week of moving slowly and then back to it.

Side benefit: My nearly constant back pain - GONE. The weak abs due to the hernia weren't doing their job.

After the surgery, the only back pain I suffer is when I do something patently stupid.

Yeah, I still have some back pain, but I do a lot of things that are patently stupid.
