The nurse just came in and disconnected the pump. She will start bolus feeding me in an hour. 350 cc every 4 hours. That's a lot of syringes to fill and pump into my belly. Been there twice before and have a plan. I feel so free not being tied to a machine that makes obscene and funny noises. Maybe I could use a fish tank pump to automatically feed a desired amount into me. Leave it to Dunner to find an easier way to do something.

Dunner's better. You can tell 'cuz his sense of humor is showing itself again: "Maybe I could use a fish tank pump to automatically feed a desired amount into me. Leave it to Dunner to find an easier way to do something."

"The shot does no good." Finish that sentence with "against aspirational pneumonia", and you've nailed it. Actually, it protects you from, as Barb said, bacterial pneumonia and it's an excellent protection for us not-so-spring-chickens to have.

Thanks for the update, Mike. Keep your chin up...except when swallowing!

Cheers!
Sue

Now just look at this.. Almost back to classic Mike (Dunner) comments. How pleasant to read this? Very.
Sweet tooth? does this mean you are learning to taste again? YAY!!

No, the taste buds are not coming back very quickly. Neither is the saliva. I read that if you can't make it wet, you can't taste it and water is not the same as saliva. It has other Yuki stuff. One nurse said she has a friend who had throat cancer and it's been over 2 years and his taste buddies are still not working. Just have to use my brain to remember what something tastes like.

I will never lose my sense of humor. I was born a smart a$$. Gotten me in trouble many times. I'm serious about the fish tank pump. Will give my creative mind something to do. Just gotta get to Petco and get one.

I have every reason to be depressed, but what good will that do? I'm just hanging around to see what will happen next, and believe me something will.

Mike, although we have not met, I'm pretty certain that you and I could probably have a pretty good go at talking up some tales of old, and later trying to decide which one of us is the bigger horse's patoot.

You have been writing in increasingly cheerful tones! I like your spirit and can see the spicey vigor in your words. Makes me think you have bounced from the lows and are heading steadily upward.

Good show! Give us more.
Dave

I splash some colors on paper, while you make art. Nice! More?

Looks good Marty, you should of seen the evil in Mary's eyes when she spotted her painting, which I proudly displayed in our front window at the GC. I felt my life was in danger, luckily she didNt notice it till the last day, so I happily removed it!

Jeanne, thank goodness there are not as many road gators as there used to be. Had to dodge a few of them with Gwen in Texas; glad the shoulder was wide.

Hope you get things fixed up okay.

Only a Texan "ropes" a tire cap. Love your lingo!

[QUOTE=zeelarry;2044496]By chance, did you purchase the extended warranty through Wholesale Warranties? If so, I have read that people who bought warranties through them & had problems with a claim, Wholesale Warranties got involved & helped with having the denied claim flipped to approved.

My extended warranty was purchased at the "closing desk" at the dealership. Allegiance must be their warranty of choice.

With my recent record of not having problems covered, I'm tempted to "cash in" the remaining years with my present warranty and just buy extended drivetrain warranty for the MH. Ya know? What else isn't covered and what is the warranty worth?

In a recent "gun battle" with them I told them I was considering dropping their coverage. The reps comment was "I encourage you to do that". I must have touched his sensitive button in our discussions.

Di, I milked it for 10 days, long ago and far away.

Yeah day 1 is "What? I had surgery?" Day 2 is "OMG my gizzard is hollering".

The midnight itch of the noogie by your navel will give you time to paint.

PapawSteve, my heart goes out to you.

My hope is that, at the least, the nifty fix that Dwayne applied is a sound repair.

Best of luck on the battlefield.
