My latest abortion....
« on: July 05, 2008, 12:40:13 AM »
...will be happening this coming Monday, July 7th. As some of you may remember, last year when I had cancer, I referred to the tumor as Timmy, and that it would be the closest thing to being pregnant that I would ever be. Then I got the news a few weeks ago that I apparently got knocked up again, this time with Twyla, Timmys little sister. She is about the same size as Timmy was, about the size of an olive. So now I have to drag my ass to the hospital for another abortion. At least this time, they will put me under full anesthesia, so I won't have to go through all the shit I went through last time. Though, they will be keeping me overnight at least for "pain management" which I have discovered is a polite euphemism for "this procedure is gonna hurt like a motherfucker" Oh well, at least I'll have some fun pain drugs to keep me entertained. I'll let you alll know how it turns out when I get back home and the fog burns off.

The only thing I can do straight is shoot..

Sorry you're having to go through this, yet glad that it is happening. For awhile there it seemed pretty 'iffy'.

Will be waiting to hear from you when it's over.

Hey Carl,

I am sending lots of positive energy your way. I hope Twyla's abortion goes well and her well-earned demise leaves you better in no time.

Keep us posted when you're able.
