A Conversation with Matty

Matty: Have you grown an inch?

Epi: Are you f'n kidding me? Seriously? I'm 32-years-old.

Matty: Well, you're walking a little taller I think.

Epi: I haven't put on any height in over 19 years. Jesus, NINETEEN YEARS? Christ I'm getting old.

Matty: Old and decrepit. But taller. And skinnier.

Epi: Old and decrepit. I see how you are. You go out there and lift morbidly obese patients run after run for months on end and see how YOU feel.

Matty: You were warned that this was the job you were undertaking...

Epi: Shut the hell up.

Matty: Okay, shutting it.

Epi: Do you have any rolaids?

Matty: *biting his tongue* In the cabinet there may be some tums.

Yes folks... My body is breaking down on me. I found out today that my tiny lil gastric bypass pouch has developed an ulcer. I'm beginning treatment with Pepcid and PCN. I hope it works because the alternative sucks royally.

Hey Laura and Evil Lunch Lady :) Thanks for the comments.

I think I'm going to live! You can stand down lifeflight.

Bob: Hey!!! Thanks for stopping by... Hopefully soon I'll have something more interesting to write about than ulcers, fleas and potty training!

I will be keeping my fingers crossed that it heals itself and no other intervention is necessary. Take care.
