First of Many Posts About my Emergency Appendectomy

An email I just sent to my entire office:

My surgeons injected my stomach with a bunch of C02 so they could laproscopically get that appendix out of there (I guess it makes it easier for them to see things and isolate others). They didn't pop me like a balloon though when they were done, so at the moment I definitely look pregnant.
Apparently, some of the gas will re-absorb into my body. But then some of it has to come out (if you know what I mean). I have been instructed by Medical Professionals that I need to be farting as much as possible.

Anywho, I have decided to embrace my gassiness. I’m home alone working right now and every time the good lord blesses me with a nice round trumpet fart, though very painful, I throw up my hands (to no one) and exclaim, “Doctor’s Orders!”

You can expect this as normal office behavior from now on.

And yet... you're concerned about your neatly arranged shoe shelves in your home office... go figure!

That is weird. You would think that when they pulled the operating arm thingy out, the co2 would have gone out that way. Go figure. Toot away!

Oh nooo. So sorry to hear about your appendicitis; get better soon. :(
