Counting my blessings. It's stuff like this that helps me put everything into perspective.
This woman recently had a (benign) tumor surgically removed too. All 66 pounds worth! It took four people to lift and roll it onto a pathology exam table. That's almost a whole basketball team.
Will someone tell me though -- I understand the difficulty in self-diagnosing a tumor-like-growth. But how do you not notice the 66 extra pounds? Oooh, I wonder if I lost any weight last week.
Pictures of my tumor next to this one would be like comparing the difference between an M&M and Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory!
See how I did that? Brought chocolate into play! Had to, otherwise any other comparison would just be gross.
