Thanks for the fan mail. I have only read a couple of mainly picture books in my entire life, while my wife is a book worm. Oh the sweet, sweet irony that I might get requests for a book. And, good critique on my style. Wow !!!
I would have to disavow my nom de plum, Resection Man
, and start over though. Not that Resection Man isn’t mysterious and interesting, but the whole story of a medically necessary surgery is a wasted prop. And, I would have to cover my tracks. The truth behind Van Gough’s ear is that he slipped on some of his own spilled paint and ended up ripping his ear off on a wall scone. Everyone would have thought him a jackass, so he came up with the chop-my-ear-off-for-love-and-inspiration spin and look at his market cap now.
Maybe I can put a love spin on my intestine surgery. It might do wonders for my currency. Here I am struggling to get views on my posts. CNN would pick me up for sure. “Man removes own intestine as sign of love …”.
Actually, this is my first time to participate on a board much less write on anything larger than a napkin. You can read my early work on the same board, thread: “A little tense need some reassurances” where I even muse about titles. Well, I did keep an adventure journal from a big camping trip 25 years ago. It is very funny.
I told my wife she had a fan and I got that soft Marge Simpson groan, “mmmmmm”. I could see the wheels turning: “What’s your angle man?”. She was not thrilled with my discharge papers. No work, plenty of rest, no lifting over 10 lbs, no taking out the trash, mowing, no driving (the kids to school) etc…
I must get foot and leg massages to help prevent DVT, and the cherry: Sexual Activity may resume when comfortable. I am comfortable exactly
73 minutes after taking the 1000 mgs of Vicodin every
4 hours. Yeah Baby!!!
My wife is a saint and I love her dearly. Her nom de guerre can be Santa X. I am six years older than she (she was only 12 when I was 18 !!!) and we have been married for almost 10 years, together for 12. Oh, she is a real keeper too. Brings home bacon, quite useful around the house, and she is my perfect soul mate. This has been much harder on her than on me. I will think about what to write and lay down a post later on (it has been 71 minutes since I took the vike, and I need to freshen up). I think it is important for the unresected to think about how this is all going to affect those that love them. Also, you don’t quite feel so bad yourself when you think about others.
