I'm home again

Well here I am I’m home again
I’ve had my operation
And me, I don’t mind telling you
It caused me consternation
Cause me, I don’t like hospitals
They don’t do much for me
But with this blessed hernia
It’s the way things had to be.

It couldn’t be a little op
I’d heard that it’s all key hole
But not for me, it had to play
A so much bigger role
They cut my belly wide open
From Sternum to that place
Where the Umbilicus lies
It put a frown upon my face

‘twill give me pain for three months yet
The doctor said to me
And me I cannot take pain killers
They cause me misery
So I guess that I must take the pain
And act just like a man
And get through all this discomfort
Just like I know I can.

    So sorry you had to endure in such an operation Peter but the good news is the worst is over. I just had a partial thyroidectomy April 30. I had a 5.8 goiter in my neck. But the worst is over my friend. Glad to see you here on the soup and wishing you a speed recovery. Hugs and love, Gail

    Thank you Gail, I don't even know why I sent that one, I guess I had to write it, because even those things are still part of my story. And I love trying to give poetry to my story. Sorry to hear you have had your troubles with health too. In the end it is all an experience for the good or bad. I appreciate your comments Gail...Peter

    Thank you Debbie. I had to have the op, cause I couldn't stand this old body, with the lumps, it made me feel older than I already am .. LOL
