At All

The Surgery: Not For The Faint Of Heart

Admitted at 3:00 AM 11/11 with surgery at 4:20 PM 11/11. Excellent surgeon: Dr Steve Bynon at UAB Hospital and all went well.

We thought the liver and kidneys were big, after all the medical term is “Massively Enlarged.” But a thirty pound liver and a nine pound kidney? Excess fluids removed as well. Replacements were three pounds and one pound respectively. You know anyone else who lost forty pounds over Thanksgiving?

Again: THIS IS NOT PRETTY
