Well Friends, As much as I hate Dr's cutting on me, I have to get this little one done tomorrow. I have this hernia poking out of my belly button (ambiblical hernia) which just keeps getting bigger. It's like a tire w/ too much air and a bubble pops out of the side. I wouldn't care but the Doc says if a little chunk of food gets in there and rots (it's opened right into my small intestine), it would cause big problems! So I best git ER done! The funny part was the Doc asked me if I was attached to my button? I said, of course I an it's right here> No he said he may have to sew it up and I wouldn't have one anymore! I said, Doc> You go for it! I could care less, do I look like I'm gonna care about about that when I have a 12" scar right below it from my prostate cancer opp? He laughed. I told him it might be kind of cool not having one, I could tell people I'm a clone! Anyway, I'll probably be out of touch for a couple days so Y'all take care of your selves and remember> Big Pete loves Y'all!!!
Big Fatguy hugs to all my family!
