I’ll be out of the shop for a few weeks. Today my wife is going in for 4 hr surgery to remove a massive fibroid (21 cm or 8” diametre) that developed during her pregnancy with our daughter. It didn’t mastecize (the doc’s term) after childbirth and the concern is that it’s cancerous. Once removed, we won’t know for 2-3 weeks after surgery as they have to do a full pathology on the mass.

There’ll be a 4-6 week recovery period if all goes well. I’ll let you know how it goes. It’s going to be a rough day for sure :(
