today sven had surgery to remove his lipoma, which he's had for longer than i've known him, but has eventually grown to be a bump on his back about the size of a gently curved palm. the doctor was kind enough to let me stay in the room and even take pictures while he opened sven up, dug around under the skin, and sewed him back together.
look away if you're squeamish. look away, i say!

now there will be rest and no lifting of anything larger than a gallon of milk for a month (a gallon of milk weighs between 8-8.5 pounds).
on a completely unrelated note, it turns out jupiter is close enough to see at least three of its moons just via binoculars. tonight was the first night in two weeks i've been able to see for myself, so i'm glad i kept checking the skies. and the moon, though only half full (or half empty, if you are a pessimist), was incredibly detailed, too.
oh, and last night we saw a very strange bjork movie.
that is all.
Get well soon!
