Oh Hernia.

Well...I'm pretty sure that my stomach isn't supposed to look like this.
We like to call it my Alien Baby.
It's actually a hernia that has developed from the incision from my gastric bypass.
I knew it was there, but it was never visible until just recently.
It also has never hurt, until I picked up Tristyn on Mother's Day.
It felt like I had done 100 sit ups and it was very uncomfortable.
I decided to have it checked out and taken care of before it got worse.
On June 11, I will have surgery to repair the hernia.
It is outpatient, but they are going to make the incision right over my existing scar.
That goes right through me.
It took 7 months for that sucker to heal in 2006.
It better not take that long this time because I have some swimming to do!
