Going Under

Tomorrow’s the big day…I go in hospital for the big “H” surgery. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to it. It feels like winning the lottery…sort of…the lottery of Getting Rid of Useless Body Parts. I’ve been so distracted lately that I haven’t posted, or visited your blogs, or even wanted to write. I’ve been nesting. Buying groceries and paper products and cleaning house and talking the guys at work off the ledge (they love me, and don’t know how they’ll get along without me). I’m expecting the first week or two after surgery to be a lovely pain-and-drug fest, bordered with frequent naps and daytime television and wonderful white capsules of relief.

Afterward I will, hopefully, feel more like myself again. I’ll post and visit you and get back some semblance of the Mona you knew. Or thought you knew. Or came by wondering, Did she post a picture of her breasteses again?

In my absence, the lovely, talented, sexy Maggie at Mind Moss has agreed to be my Second in Command for the Poetry Friday Word. Please go to her site this week and next week for The Word, and for her yummy brand of blogishness. (Maggie, I totally owe you!) I’ll be back for the August 3 Poetry Friday, either having emerged from the Fog of Drugs, or still under the influence of some really trippy morphine derivative. Either way…YAY.

Take care, y’all!

Thanks for the honor. Take good care of yourself and enjoy the trippy white pills. But if they offer you a blue pill or a red pill, take the red pill. Or is the blue you're supposed to take? Oh sheesh. How will we ever get out of the matrix if we can't remember our pill colors?

Btw, I'm so jealous of your big H. Weird I know.

I wish you the best, and an easy recovery.

Remember, farting is a sign of internal activity that the nurses encourage. I learned this when my mom had her bog H.

Mona, I'm going to start lighting incense to Ganesh tonight for you, and will burn it until you get back. I know it's kind of strange, you having the Mommy Bit surgery and being The Opener Of The Ways, but hey, he's never done ill by me before. *s* We'll all be here waiting for your speedy recovery.

*hugs*

Best wishes, Mona dear. Just think - you'll never have your uterus, uh, FALL OUT, like I've heard they tend to do.

Mona, I hope everything went well, and that you're resting comfortably with Prince Vicadin. *hugs*

Hope all goes well and the 2 week drug-fest-rest goes quickly! Hey, you'll weigh less!

Good luck!
