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 was feeling so miserable that I wished I had the nerve to do the same thing!  Golden would.

 

My day was so pleasant yesterday.  Hubby went to our favorite meat market and bought some goodies.  The same store has a great deli, so now we have chicken salad, ham salad and potato salad!  He even bought some of those great big seeded buns I like so much.  I had a nice long nap in the afternoon, then talked to my daughter on the phone for twenty minutes or so.  And all the while that I was having a marvelous day, I kept thinking about Golden and wondering how she was doing.  I hope she will be back soon to give us all what for!

    She will be, I’m sure. when it does come time and she is to be buried I’ll bet she gives the grave diggers a hard time. And for you. Keep busy, don’t worry. It’s going to go right and you’ll soon be jogging.

      Now that’s something Hubby would pay to see – me jogging! I just want to be able to walk from the bedroom to the kitchen without getting out of breath!

        Me too. Bedroom to kitchen. I have COPD and deserve it for two pack of cigarettes a day for 60 years. But I’d been smoking for 20 years by the time the Surgeon General warned us about the dangers. Doctors have okeyed exercising now and I’m going to do my best fight against this COPD thing.

          best rehab there is for overall exercise.
          If you live in a hilly area you can get one with gears & assistance.

            Oh, it’s hilly all right! One of those might not be the best idea here in the winter!!

              for Winter in a place that gets nasty, a Schwinn fan bike is not a bad idea & for early rehab even a set of pedals that you just work your legs while sitting in a chair. The Trike is great for doing your exercise & getting some fresh air too, maybe even run a short errand.

          Atta boy! I’m gonna do my best to get this damn knee working right, too. After all, it’s being specially made just for me!

    She’s one tough lady. I’m sure she’s giving the doctors and nurses the what for!

    I was thinking about her too. I am sure she will be fine but it would be nice to hear from her and know she’s all right.

    She is reading all our posts and laughing at us ! I really do hope she is doing good. I know she is. She wouldn’t have it any other way.

      I’m sure you’re right. She’s probably ticked off at me for writing about her!

      Goldenpig is a longtime contributor to this site and a dear friend of mine and many others. She is well-known for her dry wit.

    She’s to feisty to let this keep her down
