I'm in the Hospital!

Fortunately, they have wireless internet, so I won't go completely insane

I had a little problem, not to get too graphic, but I am going to have to have surgery to correct a rectal prolapse (I blew around a foot of intestine out of it!). I'll be off the bike and stuck in hospital for a bit.

If you've ever seen the weight lifter pic that's so gross, you'll get the picture and NO ONE needs to post it.

I hope they do a good job, Tom. Glad to hear you've got something to do. We'll leave all the tedious spam removal for you.

I'm hoping this is a hoax, like when you and chip pulled that one awhile back. If not, then best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I really wish it was a hoax! I'm in hospital and I ain't kidding!

KT, it does appear to be related to massive weight loss. I lost some of the structural support around the Sigmoidal Colon and SURPRISE, a foot log party favor from the wrong end!

That must've been a fun time in admitting.

Nurse: "So whatsamattawitchu?"
Tom: "Yeah, so ummm...uhhh...it's like this...there's this thing hanging where I never had anything hanging before..."

Get better soon!
