Doing Well,

This is not Bettymom, but he husband.  She wanted to let everyone know that she was up and doing well with her knee replacement.  The fun really starts tomorrow with rehab! Hopefully, she will be back online in a few days.

THE BIG DAY

Arrival at 6:00am, surgery at 8:00am.  Thanks for all the good wishes, everyone.

COUNT DOWN: LAST DAY!!

Well, I'm right on schedule with all my preparations.  I'm packed and ready to go.   I cleaned my bathroom this morning.  Boy, that big counter was crusty and dusty.  Oh now I have the urge to have twins and name them Crusty and Dusty.  Wouldn't...

HEY, DAD!

Hey, Dad, they finally did it!  Your Cubbies won the World Series!  It wasn't always neat and it wasn't always pretty, but they got it done.  And you only missed it by thirty-three years and six months.   Love you, Dad

THINKING ABOUT A FRIEND

I wonder how Golden is doing today.  I imagine she isn't jumping through any hoops, but I hope she feels well enough to give the nurses a hard time.  I remember having a hospital roommate once who threw a bedpan (empty, thank God) at a nurse, and I...
