There’s a hole in the belly of the Belle

Belle

I like to consider my ability to cook up ridiculous little songs for random occasions to be one of my more redeeming characteristics. Mr. Husband may disagree as too often these songs revolve around him, his actions and the silly little nicknames I have for him (which I will not reveal to the Internet as I know he would be mortified).

I also find silly songs are a good way to cope with stressful occasions. Since getting home yesterday from the great Shop-Vac-ing of my abdominal cavity I find myself constantly aware that there is a hole in my belly. Not just a little one, but one that goes through the skin, through more skin, pierces the abdominal wall (GROSS) and into the mysterious abdominal cavity.

Confession: I really was not aware there was an abdominal wall and an abdominal cavity. Call me what you will, but I find organs disgusting and choose to live my life in denial that there are gross squishy things like livers and kidney’s neatly, or not so neatly in my case, tucked behind some ghastly thing called and abdominal wall. Yuck.

So since coming home last night at about 5:30 I have worked hard to keep my mind away from the fact that I have organs and that they are sort of in the wrong place thanks to two Gatorade sized bottles of disgustingly red fluid that was sucked out of me by a medical  Shop-Vac. (I’m squeamish again). Unfortunately my attempts at keeping this out of my mind are failing as every time I inhale I am reminded that:

  1. I can breathe again
  2. I can feel the bandage on my drain hole tightening as I refill with more nasty fluid as some more of my zillion cysts rupture.

So I decided I needed a silly song to down-play the grossness of the situation.
And so we have There’s A Hole – Belle-Style

There’s a hole in the belly of the Belle,
There’s a hole in the belly of the Belle,
There’s a hole, there’s a hole,
There’s a hole in the belly of the Belle.


There’s gauze on the hole
In the belly of the Belle,
There’s gauze on the hole
In the belly of the Belle,
There’s gauze, there’s gauze,
There’s gauze on the hole
In the belly of the Belle.


There’s bandage on the gauze in the hole
In the belly of the Belle,
There’s bandage on the gauze in the hole
In the belly of the Belle,
There’s a bandage, there’s a bandage,
There’s a bandage on the gauze on the hole
In the belly of the Belle.

I could go on, but I’m sure you get the point. Happy weekend fellow TTC’ers. To those who are testing today, good luck to you. My fingers and toes are crossed for you!
