There's always a whole bunch of poking, prodding, testing, bleeding and leaking that seems to go on before surgery.It will sure be good to have this behind you. I'm glad the van is finally fixed. It's been sick far too long, too. I say health for everyone and everything in your household!
I'm just glad to hear that things from the 70's don't qualify as antiques. I hope that extends to things from the 60s as well. Still, it's too bad you didn't wind up on the show. That would have been fun. I could see that experience winding up in one of your stories. At the very least it's worthy of a poem. I'll bet you won't be the first to ask the doctors when it's safe to pick up your furbabies again. That will be a milestone of your recovery.
Yup, an implant on one of my top front teeth. I had a cap on it that come off last weekend. The foundation tooth is compromised now. This is about as close to looking like a hockey player as I'll ever come. I had one done on a side tooth a year ago. I think I'm personally funding the dentist's college fund for his kid. A five pound weight limit is no fun. That will limit medicinal ice cream cones. How much does Weegee weigh? That may be the biggest downside of all. I suppose a bright side is a year ago we were very worried about Weegee and she dodged that bullet. I hope all is well with her.
Good lord, woman! I thought we agreed you weren't going to have any more medical crap going on and that your long overdue run of good luck was about to begin. With whom do I need to speak? Clearly you seem to be struggling with the idea of trauma free living. I have no doubt that you're trying but you're falling well behind the other kids in your stress free life class. I do hope your marks in this subject will show significant improvement and soon. Now seriously. That's an awful lot of crappy news. How long is the recovery/rehab time expected to be from the back surgery? I suppose the good news is that will give your ankle plenty of time to recover. News out here? Well, I about to start about six grand worth of dental procedures but I'll take that over what you're going through any time. I sure do hope things get better for you soon. This run of bad luck has got to end soon.
Great idea for the book club Jenny, I think we should just start making lolz for 'strange and unusual creatures. Years ago, I did a series of 'misidentified animals', together with cheezfriend Peregrin (who doesn't seem to be around anymore). We had lots of fun. Ifyou are interested: here is the cheezsite where I collected them all. http://misidentifiedanimals.cheezburger.com/
