UNDER THE KNIFE!

Yikes! I'll be under the surgeon's knife in a couple of days so I guess it'll be midweek before I'm back to Theory Corner again. It's to fix a heart problem, maybe with a stent.  That meant major surgery in my Dad's time, but this is 2014 and the procedure might require only an overnight stay in the hospital. Thank God for fiber optics!

What they're doing requires threading a tube into the groin and up the coronary artery to the heart. Can you believe that? I swear, every medical thing nowadays has to do with the groin. Wait and see...even dentists will figure out ways to involve the groin in what they do. What is this groin fascination? And I have to be partially awake while this is going on!

Anyway, I'll be back in a few days.

I'll never forget when I guy I worked with decided his stint story wouldn't be complete without showing everyone his scar. The groin scar. Well, I've TRIED to forget it, I should say.

Maybe your doctor's a certified groinecologist, ever think of that? As I recall, Archie Bunker had one.

Anyway, I'll fill you in on FARGO when you get back...

Just make sure the surgeon doesn't get any fresh ideas about sticking more than a tube up there ok? jk

Hi Eddie;

Let's hope it doesn't come to that. I hear the postage kills!
