I repeat: NOT an idiot

Working on a medium-length piece tentatively titled “Children are exhausting.” If I don’t win an award for stating the obvious I shall be gravely disappointed.

In the meantime, here’s a click-baity before-and-after photo of me. Photo at left was taken July 16, minutes before I left to go to hospital for surgery to remove several large fibroid tumours. Photo at right was taken this morning, eight days post-op.

When my surgeon said the fibroids had me measuring at 20 weeks’ gestation (ie: 4-5 months pregnant), that was no joke. I’m not sure I really appreciated it myself until I saw these side by side.

So the big (non)baby belly is gone. Still gonna keep the stretchy pants, though. I’m not an idiot.
