So, this picture is a little gross, but I had to show off this crazy bruise I got from my gallbladder surgery a couple weeks ago. I was excited to get it out b/c my gallbladder has been making me sick for a year now, but the timing was not ideal because I had the surgery on Friday and then classes started on Tuesday and Wednesday I started my traineeship (I now have 2 part-time jobs, full-time school, and, of course, a 2 yr old). Anyway, the first 2 weeks were pretty rough. I was super tired and definitely sore, but I am all healed now and feeling great. Not only that, I can eat fat with wild abandon (well, not really, actually, but at least I won't spend a weekend puking my guts out if I have some olive oil).

P.S. They had to pump my stomach full of gas, hence the swollen look. I do do the occasional sit-up.

2. My first thought when I saw that tummy picture was "oh my gosh did Something happen to Brecken because it is so tiny!

I had some pretty killer bruises too. It's amazing how there's only 4 cuts but they have to move around so much in there and so it hurts so bad later. Glad you're doing better. I still don't do too well with beef but not like it was prior to it being removed.

Wow, I had no idea that the bruises we're so bad. I still can't believe that you were up at Chris and Emily's the next day. Glad to hear that you're better and without food restrictions.
