Its-the-end-of-the world-as-we-know-it and-I-feel-fine!
Back-story: I've probably mentioned this before in this blog, cause I love complaining, but I have pretty bad acid reflux. I had the doctors stick a camera or something down my throat this summer to see how bad I am. Turns out I have some sort of abnormally large hole in the top of my stomach. And as such, I can claim that this isn't a problem caused by my dieting habits. (Goldfish crackers + lemonade is totally a diet.) But it's an ongoing problem, and currently I'm having to take some hefty medication to keep it down. So the obvious solution is a full out surgery. (Well, I did research some other possibilities, and some I don't even qualify for, and it turns out this surgery is the best method.)
It shouldn't be too much of a problem. The doctors who's doing this is experienced... like, uber, "I've do this a hundred times a year" experienced. (And I suppose that also makes my problem not that unique either.) So it's nothing life threatening, but it will help in the long run. I'm not too worried about it.
What I am worried about is the fact that I'll have to be on a liquid food diet for two weeks after this. Feasting during the end of the year? Only on jello or yogurt for me!
That, and the world might end in a couple of days, and I might be on too many painkillers to either A: Get out of the way of the falling, flaming debris, or B: Not be able to appreciate the explosion on the horizon before it consumes me. Hmm, maybe I should've pushed off the surgery for a few days. Eh, too late now.
Anyway, parting picture: since people have been putting santa hats on their avatars, I decided to do the same to mine. Happy holidays, stay safe, and see you on the other side!
