As a brief follow-up to my story from yesterday, I have some particularly galling news. Well, to be fair, the news is actually a relief given the inordinately high rate of stomach cancer in my family. This gallstone and a bunch of his dumb friends are what’s been making me feel like slug slime for months and, more recently, whopping amounts of pain. Anyway, they are getting tossed out on their butts soon and I should feel better right away after surgery. It’s nice to have an explanation for my general feelings of unwellness and stomach pain that’s easy to treat and not so damn scary for my brain. Hurrah.
