*cry* uh oh *cry*

hey guys,

i am just letting you all know that i am most likely going into surgery. Why? because my rib cage bulges out and now it is starting to grow in at the bottom of the bulge and it is hurting really bad. so i told my parents and they are sure that i am getting surgery. so now i get to have a scar instead of the horrid bulge on my chest but it is still surgery so i hope all goes well and the doctor can fix it well

wish me luck guys

Im sure everything will go just fine

And think of the scar this way- you can impress the ladies with all sorts of stories "See this scar?? I was wrestling a monkey in Africa when..."

haha! but this is what i know they gotta do

they gotta cut the skin off the bulge, break the bone or saw it off, put the bone together, sew up the cut, wake me up and put me into recovery wither that or i will go home

Rufy - I hope all goes well as I am sure it will. Since you are young you are likely to heal better and faster. Plus you get to be taken care of and spoiled which is always good!

Hope all goes well. I may also have to have surgery but mine is too personal to talk about.
Current fish (includes all 3 running tanks): Polypterids, severums (of which I raised from eggs), gouramis, plecos (gold spot ones & a gurupa), loaches (zebras, yoyos, & a kubotai), macculocchi spotted silver dollars, an African butterfly fish, & Ctenopomas (a leopard & an ansorgii)
