An Unsettling Event

Keep my wife in your prayers.

The doctors have discovered a growth in her uterus. Per their diagnosis, it began festering in November.

Over time, the thing will grow, gradually consuming her until the doctors will have no choice but to slice open her stomach and tear the thing from a morass of intestines and internal organs.

To add insult to injury, thanks to some obscure provision of the Obamacare bill (or the EPA, we're not sure which), we will be responsible to nurture and care for the thing for nearly two decades thereafter.

Preliminary research indicates this process is messy and expensive. Absurdly, once the creation is able to forge it's own living, it then has no fiduciary obligation to us.

I know a few people who have had this happen. They are pretty much exhausted, have so social life, and smell like pee. Ugh.

I'm naming it Voltron.

This is why I vote Republican, people.
