ANYWHO - one of my favorite co-workers DEMANDED that I put together some pictures of me before surgery so she could get an idea of what I used to look like. She then, after picking her jaw off the floor at the difference, suggested I post those pictures here.
Here they are - do with them what you will.
Joy and I, May, 2005, about a week before our wedding. Note how Joy is almost totally hidden in this picture - by my belly alone.
