A lot of good things happened today.

1. Joe came over! This isn't the first time I've seen her since the surgery, but the Jeggoe time has been seriously curtailed due to my inability to drive. So it was very very exciting.

2. I got my staples out! It didn't hurt, really. It kinda pinched a little, once or twice. Now I have a neat little seam running from my belly button all the way down to my bikini line, with a bunch of little sore spots on either side where the staples stuck in.

He said he wouldn't have even used staples if he could have made the incision sideways across my belly. I guess up and down incisions are far more likely to pull apart, kinda like when you don't zip your fly and then sit down. Sideways incisions also leave a much less noticable scar, but he's really glad he didn't use one, because he'd've had to make ANOTHER incision up and down, it just wouldn't have worked. And I'd have a big anchor shape in my belly.

Is it weird that I'm looking forward to having a scar?

I'm still sore, but the doctor said I'm doing excellently, so yay.

3. I got some things in the mail, including a. my last two paychecks (WOOOOO!) and b. a card signed by everyone in the lab* with a money order for $100. Wow.

4. Um...Ok, I guess there weren't THAT many things. But three is more than enough for me right now. :)


*DIETER SIGNED THE CARD "GET WELL SOON - DISCO MUSIC IS WAITING FOR YOU." WTF?! NO, SERIOUSLY, WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK!? AHHHHHHHHH!
