I love the bowel story! That is too funny. It reminds me of when I was little at church one Sunday when someone asked this little girl how her pregnant mommy was. She said,"My mommy is at home. She has hemmrhoids." I am sure her mom appreciated everyone at church knowing that. I didn't know what they were at the time myself but for some reason that has always stuck with me. I knew it couldn't be something good because of the face my mom made.
I am praying for you. Please let us know how you are as soon as you are able. My surgery is Friday, Feb. 16. Pray for me too, please!
