emergency appendix removal...
...means no training for two weeks for bad news, alas. could be worse i suppose, considering last night i was unconscious on an operating table while doctors sawed at my gut with knives. oh well, my roundhouse kicks were finally starting to come along, too. but i got a (hopefully) good story out of it:

I'm sorrry to here about that, a year ago I was on the table for a gall bladder, did they pump your gut full of gas to make your Appendix stand out? I also got some decent pictures out of it, did they scope you or cut you open?

2 weeks? you're lucky. I've was down for about a month in pain prior to back surgery, It's been 2 more months, It'll be another month before I can even think of training again. :(

they did pump in the gas, its a weird feeling having that stuff bubble out of you at 3 am.

Fuckin a hell bad news hughes!
i'm glad to hear you've been stripped of that good-for-nothing piece of evolutionary insurance policy!
"I'm going to keep this organ around just in case my species starts swallowing a lot of rocks again...."
Perhaps you should have named yourself "extremely good news of the freakishly fortunate type hughes"I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

thanks guys. actually, i guess i am a bit lucky in that i sparred my kickboxing instructor for the first time last saturday, and of course he hit me at will, including a few shots to the gut. he took it easy on me, but i basically charged his foot one time and it landed pretty solid. that night i was camping out in the woods -- god forbid the strikes caused it to pop out there or something. eesh, that would've been a real mess.
but yeah, the gas... so far, that's been some of the worse pain, the fact that some of the gas pools in your shoulders and causes soreness.
anyway, my empathy goes out to canuck and others laid up with injuries and such. i'm a total noob at this ma stuff, and already feel like i'm going nuts becuase i'm not training. it's gotta be rough for people who've made it a daily part of their lives for years.Originally Posted by HedgehogeyOriginally Posted by Kidspatula

Before you know it, you'll be up and muff diving :)That civilisation may not sink,
Its great battle lost,
Quiet the dog, tether the pony
To a distant post;
Our master Caesar is in the tent
Where the maps are spread,
His eyes fixed upon nothing,
A hand under his head.

heh heh... i'll take it nice and slow.
p.s. to samuel browning -- unfortunately, i'm all too familiar with the feeling of gas bubbling out of me at 3 a.m., and have been long before i had surgery.Originally Posted by HedgehogeyOriginally Posted by Kidspatula
