Off-White House Bullettin

SUNDAY MORNING NAVEL ENGAGEMENT REPORTED!

DAVE SIM:
One week after release from hospital and time to change the dressings on my four incisions.  This is what's left of my navel. Pleased to report there was no smelly discharge on the wound or on the gauze pad covering it. I cleaned up as much of the dried blood as I could with cotton balls and hydrogen peroxide (recommended by the local pharmacist). Minor bruising around the site but nothing unexpected.

Unless I'm missing something as a "front row civilian" -- in which case Calling Dr. Troy in Texas! Calling Dr. Troy in Texas!


See you, God willing, for my next update on Friday.

Good to see you feeling better and recovering after your surgery, Dave. Hope you got my "get well" card.

You won't see posts like that on Mike Mignola's Facebook feed!

The first time the nurses changed the bandages after my wife's total colectomy they stopped and said, "Oh. They left your belly button."

Please replace with photorealist illustration at your early convenience. Yeagh! Gross!

Good to see you are recovering Dave. You are in my prayers.

Wow! That *so* brings out my inner 8-year old boy:

"Gross! COOL!!!"

Keep up the good work, Dave, at doing what you're supposed to be doing to get back to 101%.

At the least.

Reminds me of the image of the tent stitching on pg. 567 of Form&Void

Jeff Seiler said...

Which, I might indelicately add, looked a lot like...

I won't add.

Out of...

Delicacy.

Oh, wait, I thought you were referring to the tent entrance in the issue of the Cerebus issue when he was walking around in the rain.

Either way, ....

Well...

I'll say it, Jeff.

Vagina.

It looked like a vagina.

Dave's former belly button, though. Ugh.

Oh I forgot about that one Jeff! Yeah that too. Maybe one day this picture will be used as a Rorschach test for comic book fans.
