Purple, Red, and Blue

That bruise if from the guy trying to start an IV line and instead puncturing through the vein blowing it.  Lovely huh?

I have more bruises that I had J take photos of.  Remember if you don't want to see the next photo then don't look.

I had but four small incisions and I knew I would bruise a little but not this much.

One in the naval.

One on the left side where an ovary is.

One on the right side where an ovary is.

One way below all that bruising to access the top of the uterus where the worst of the endometriosis was.

In this photo my abdomen is still all bloated from the gas they pumped into me.  I still have some of it today along with the fluid retention too.  Its amazing what 4 pounds from surgery will do to make it so none of the clothing fits.

My only real worry is for J.  J is getting chewed out by his SSG today for following the orders that two of my doctors, one a major and the other a lt.col.  set forth for my care.  The SSG called no less than three times after I was home during the 24 hr period demanding that J go back to work.  Had J gone back to work and I got hurt I would have sued the SSG and I told the SSG as much.  Of course the SSG started ordering me about which was twice in a three day period.  Does the man not realize that I'm a civilian?  I'm following my doctors orders and the doctors out rank the SSG.  The man is on a power trip.  I went over the SSG's head to the MSG and the MSG back me up.
