Scaring yourself SXXXXXXXless.
A 23 kg tumor from an Argentinian woman's uterus!
(and she too thought she was "getting a bit fat"....)
Many thanks to Vicky - who I know from her blog Hyotenka - a fellow gaijin-lady in Hokkaido who told me about this story.
I called her last night to get the inside information about what-will-happen-in-a-Japanese-hospital-when-I-have-an-operation.
VERY useful, direct conversation about body parts and things they stick inside you and feeling and what they do....gives me lots of things to worry about in the coming 2 and a half weeks.
Apart from that, a very restful Sunday.
I stayed home all day and read newspapers. Watched TV. Watched the cats catch bugs. Had a quiet lunch with Okaasan. Dozed. Looked at my stomach a million times in the mirror. (obsessive? moi?) Cooked the potatoes for dinner. Slept.
Onwards into the coming week. Am going to be real careful about overdoing work....last Tuesday afternoon I felt very sick. Don't want to get anywhere near that feeling again.
