Going Under the Knife

That's right folks, you read it correctly!

Turns out Patty Boy here has a little hernia. I noticed it about a month ago and figured I should probably get it taken care of. However, all is well. The IES insurance policy is 100% coverage, so I'm getting free surgery. Maybe even some free hospital gelatin if I'm lucky. I'll be going under the knife this Friday at 14:30. Should be a pretty smooth experience. I'll be at one of the best hospitals in South America, the famous Hospital Aleman. I'll be hanging at my homestay for two days after the surgery, and then I'm off to the suburb of Martinez to recover at a friend's place. After that I'll be heading on a month long excursion! More news on that to come.

If they take any cool pictures during the surgery, I'll be sure to post them.

Love
