That's good.....No, that's BAD!

Posted 12-28-2010 at 01:57 PM by Speced9

Anyone remember the old That's good and bad skit on Hee Haw? That's the way I felt after seeing the hernia surgeon today.

That's good....No, that's BAD!

After a quick exam, the doctor confirmed that I have an indirect inguinal hernia.

That's bad!
No, that's good.

The doctor says it's in its early stages and can be successfully repaired.

Oh, that's good!
No, that's bad.

Since it's an indirect hernia, I can't do the less invasive laparoscopic surgery. I have to go through the cut 'em open, sew it up surgery.

Well, that's bad!
No, that's good.

They were at least able to schedule it on Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, so I already have the day off.

Hey, that's good!
No, that's bad.

You see, I'll be down about a week and unable to go to school.

Aw, that's bad.
No, that's good.

I have a friend who is a great sub, so my kids will be in good hands.

Great!, That's good!
No, that's bad.

In order to have that week off, I'll have to go through the red tape of notifying my principal, convincing the sub service to commit to getting my friend and submitting a special request to have days off following a holiday.

Pfffftttt! Well, that's bad.
No, that's good.

My principal is very understanding, our secretary is great at requesting specific subs and my teacher's union makes it impossible for the district to deny requests. Plus, I'll have a week of time to blog on Pro Teacher while I'm writhing in groin pain!

That's goo.... no, that's bad....WHICH IS IT?

    Get the thing fixed.

    I had a hernia I waited to get fixed and 1 became 4. One huge one( it could and did sit on my lap) and 3 smaller ones were attached. They had to do the traditional surgery on me. It stinks, but you'll feel better soon. The plus is you won't have to worry about your kiddos if you get the sub of your choice.
    Hopes for a speedy recovery.
