One more day

Tomorrow afternoon I'll find out the biopsy results from my last surgery, and I should also determine with my surgeon what the plan is for the next one, as well as roughly when that will happen in the next week or two.

It's been almost two weeks since the previous procedure, and I'm still on the painkillers. That didn't involve an external incision. I'm starting to get permanent squint lines in my forehead from scrunching up my face, and I think the grey hairs are coming in much thicker now.

So who knows what it will be like once they take out a chunk of my intestine? Apparently during my week in the hospital I'll get a button that can dispense pain relief as often as every six minutes. I'm sure part of my gut pain right now is nervousness about that.
