The staph infection in my elbow is undercontrol. The problem with the ulnar nerve is getting better. No, this surgery was planned for after I returned from Getaway and, of course, I didn't go.
What they are going to do (in laypeople terms) is remove and reverse the stomach and the large intestine. This will put the stomach between the large and small intestines (or the rising and falling colon, if you prefer), and is almost certain to cure my hiccups. That is why I have not had anything by mouth since midnight(it's 4:37 a.m. right now). While they are at it, they're going to clean up my left knee, which has been giving me problems ever since I fell a year ago.
Eisely gets my Red Ryder bb gun, and gnu can have my ant farm, and Stilly can have my x-ray glasses. But only if I don't survive the surgery! Mom will see to that!
