Thirty years ago when I received my colectomy, I saw a Polaroid picture the surgeon had taken of my removed large intestine; it was so gory and diseased and obviously not meant to remain in my body that I'd been very glad to have seen how bad things really were.

For the first few months after my surgery, whenever I'd have trouble with my ostomy appliance or wished things had turned out differently, I'd think about that awful picture and realize that the surgery had been exactly the right option.

In the Desert
By Stephen Crane

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter-bitter," he answered;

"But I like it
"Because it is bitter,
"And because it is my heart."

"Lady," he said, and turned and gave her his full attention, "lemme tell you something. There's one of these doctors in Atlanta that's taken a knife and cut the human heart - the human heart," he repeated, leaning forward, "out of a man's chest and held it in his hand," and he held his hand out, palm up, as if it were slightly weighted with the human heart, "and studied it like it was a day-old chicken, and lady," he said, allowing a long significant pause in which his head slid forward and his clay-colored eyes brightened, "he don't know no more about it than you or me."

"That's right," the old woman said.

"Why, if he was to take that knife and cut into every corner of it, he still wouldn't know no more than you or me. What you want to bet?"

The doctors "allowed" her to have a photo with her heart?

I am not normally the type to save castoff body parts like baby teeth, but my old heart? You can bet I would be throwing that sucker into a jar of formaldehyde and using it as a conversation piece.

Man, that is hardcore. I really need to get the boomers to amp up the body-regen stuff so I can live longer. I don't want some donor heart, I want a recreation of my own heart.

/and liver.
