About twelve years ago, my sister Kasey had her ovary removed because of a gargantuan cyst that grew inside of it while she was pregnant with my nephew Miles.
When they removed it from her body, it looked exactly like this photo I robbed from Google Images: (We do have a photo of her ovary being wrenched from her innards, but it's a Polaroid and I couldn't be bothered to find it and scan it.)
|No joke. It was THAT big. We called it her dinosaur egg.|
Shortly after the ginormous tumor removal surgery, we went to Lund's grocery store. She was limping around like a darn fool (wimp). I convinced her to take it easy and use one of those wheelchairs they have for customers' use. She was weirded out by it but I kept telling her, "that's what they're for! You just had surgery!"
Ever the selfish caregiver I pushed her around the store and when she would reach for an item on the shelf I would SLAP! her hand.
Oh, how we laughed.
