I love this cartoon plunderpuss did of me arguing with my liver.

Jay arguing with his liver (c) 2010 Plunderpuss

That's what I'll look like when I'm an old man yelling at kids to get off my lawn.

Long, strange dreams last night amid some actual sleep. I was touring Australia, Land of the Slow, with James Gurney and a documentary film maker. We all had room temperature IQs in my dream.

Still not nearly on balance here. Post-op recovery has been intensely complicated by a very slow, very rough GI restart. So slow and rough that we almost went into the Emergency Room yesterday afternoon.

That distress is overwhelming other issues such as actual post-op pain, and significantly retarding my progress.

There was some advancement last night, thanks to Heroic Measures, but I still feel pretty damned awful. We shall see what the day brings. Once I can think straight and bck off a bit the pain pills, I'll catch up to both surgery blogging and New Zealand/Australia blogging.

Awesome cartoon.

Here's to things smoothing out on the recovery front sooner, rather than later. In time, this phase will pass.

Look at it this way--you may be having a crappy recovery from surgery, but you're not having a crappy recovery and then going into chemo! Recovery time will take what time it takes. (And I still will have tomatoes whether I bring them to you guys today, tomorrow, or sometime next week. They Have Decided To Ripen. We Are Buried. Heeeellllpppp!)

Love the cartoon for the win. Heeheehee.

Australia, Land of the Slow? I hope that is a comment on the pace of life, not the IQs...
