While I was sick, I lost ten pounds. Here's how it was distributed: four pounds of fat off my waist, five pounds of muscle all over, and one pound of hair that they shaved off my arm to put in the IV while I was in the hospital.
On a related note, my doctor said during a follow up check-up yesterday that I was the sickest adult he's seen in a long time. I'm so proud. I was there so that he could check to see if my spleen was still swollen. It is, as expected. I won't be playing rugby or any other of my favorite contact sports any time soon.
On a related note, the picture above is superhero "The Spleen" from my favorite comedy "Mystery Men." He's pretty gross. It was appropriate that Paul "Pee-Wee Herman" Reubens played the character.
