It looks to me as if he's had / been a beaker for a long time.

Hang in there Mike.

Me thinks you are right, Steve.
He also looks like me cousin Bill.

Celery salad? Musta been mine, since I didn't see any others. I'll get over there right smart and post it.

Anything else? Tootsie Rolls? Too easy!
Molded chocolate pops? Sorry, can't give any recipe since there isn't one.
Skip and Go Naked? (Or Barefoot). We never got around to that, did we?

Cheers!
Sue

Mike, I have utmost sympathy for your plight. Many years ago, I was in hospital needing pain meds, rang for nurse, as I had slept past dosage time, she came in and yelled at me for bothering her, had to go check chart to make sure I was due to get meds. Came back in with little pill cup, pulled the bedside tray away from bed placed the cup on the tray and walked out. I was incapable of getting to the meds. When Dr. came in for evening check, I could only point at that time. He went and raised hell down at nurses station, when she came in later to check my BP and pulse (long time ago--before fancy automatic BP cuffs) she dug her finger nail into my wrist and cut it so it was bleeding. Never saw her after that shift, and to this day I have No Idea why she treated me like that. My Dr. told me that pain is easier to control if it is kept at bay and not allowed to Flair.
Anyway that has nothing to do with you, just a bit of explanation for my supreme empathy for you, being in PAIN. Hope it gets better, and you gain freedom soon, as that will mean you are better. OH YEAH!

Sue - did your celery salad have walnuts in it? LOL!!

Also libations are always a part of a great cookbook.

Healing ohms and ohms of comfort please

Sunday, my son-in-law was sawing trim boards for the interior side of his newly installed windows. Well, one of the boards jumped up as it was going through the saw blade and his left hand fell towards the blade (he was using a push stick at the time). Imagine your own left thumb, the saw blade penetrated the thumb at the knuckle closest to the thumbnail. The blade failed to sever the thumb by about 1/4 to 1/3 of the width of his thumb.

Knuckle was rendered useless for future use. Tendons were severed. Major blood vessel was missed by a few mm. He was cleaned and sewed up on Sunday and faces surgery this coming week to deal with tendons and putting a rod in his thumb. It will no longer bend except at the base of the thumb.

Lots of pain and heavy meds until then. Probably no rehab since rehab will not help the useless tip. Your prayers would be appreciated.

Judy, my throat is in a constant pain of at least 1-3. It feels like constant heartburn in the upper chest.

The last time I was in the hospital, I had heartburn so bad that I told the nurse that if I didn't get something, I was going to throw up to get rid of the acid. She says: We have meds for that. She couldn't understand that I didn't need nausea meds. She kept repeating herself. I finally yelled at her to get out of my room and send her spvr in. I told the spvr exactly how it went and that this nurse could speak English, but not understand it.

Her spvr talked to her and after that, she became a sweetheart and did everything for me. Guess it pays to squeak.

I realize that they can only give meds every so often, but I couldn't even talk to a Dr.

Exactly, Mike, the pain should be kept at lowest level and not be spiking to where you can't stand it!

I'm guessing the tail light is high enough to hide his plumbers butt.

Fortuitous that the dual-exhaust pipe protuding under his seat looks like a pigs nose.
Probably needs a tune up really badly, cause it don't idle but just dies like all good crotch rockets should...

My main problem is I aspirate when I eat and food goes into my lungs. I think I have always done that. I'm on NPO, but get ice chips. Kinda like sipping yogurt instead of just swallowing it. That caused the pneumonia. My throat is still very raw from the cancer, but it is gone. Had a PET scan last week, very sore to the count of a 10 at times. They do give me 4mg of morphine as needed. Woopie. Also get Adivan.

They do let me walk around with someone with me and the feeding machine. Finally going to get a shower in about 10 minutes. Stinkin Mutant. Been over a week.

Thanks for the sympathy,

Mike
Hey Dunner, glad to hear you are doing better...
