Bladder Endometriosis

Andrew Cook


Is everybody warming up a little bit? I am from California. I felt like I was starting to look like Deborah Bush’s bunny there with the missing butt. It was getting cold.


I am actually from Santa Cruz and live a couple of blocks from some of the best surfing in the world. I took it up about two years ago. But I do not want to misrepresent, I would not even say I am really a surfer. I have spent some time on the board but I am probably better described as shark bait.
