Communion Of Dreams


Well, that’s annoying.

Well, I finished the storm windows on Sunday. As I told a friend, I wanted to get it wrapped up before Monday, when I expected my doctor to tell me to stop.

See, I had come to the conclusion that I probably had a hernia. Had it since early last week.

As it turned out, I didn’t get in to see my doctor until this morning. All the symptoms point to classic abdominal hernia – a small tear in the abdominal wall on the lower left, just opposite from the location of my appendix. No indication of bowel or intestinal involvement, so nothing actually serious about it. Just painful. It feels very much like someone shoved a thin 4″ knife blade into my gut, and left it there.

Well, a CAT scan tomorrow will give us a definitive answer. At worst, some outpatient surgery – nothing to worry about, and I already have more interesting scars. Just annoying, in terms of pain and messing with my wanting to get my garden in and more stuff done here around the house/yard.

Ah, well, that’s what I get for trying to be conscientious and getting the windows cleaned.
