As some of you know I suffer from crohns disease which is an irritable bowel disorder (like the grand daddy of IBS) google it if you’re interested.

Anywho, last week I had an MRI to search for possible cause of a few issues I’ve been having lately and I had an appointment to discuss the results today. The short version is I need surgery, more than likely a stoma which I have been avoiding ever since I was aware it was a possibility.

The good news (if you can call it that) is that it will be for the short term, but that’s always what they intend with these things. I haven’t had a discussion with the surgeon yet so I don’t know how soon I’ll actually have to go under the knife, or even what the recovery time is likely to be so as yet it shouldn’t effect the comic, although I’ll probably throw up one last guest strip this week as you can probably tell with everything that’s been up with me this last month or so I’m not exactly in a funny mood.

Isn’t life a bowl of bloody cherries?
