Am Laid up for a while~~~~~Pooh!!

Well Sweet Things,

I landed in the ER of our hospital thanks to an appendix that had to be removed.

Long story short, I was at work, and not feeling my usual self, and then I felt pains and ingloriously vomited into my wastebasket. One of my co-workers who was a medic in a previous incarnation, quickly called for paramedics and I was rushed to the nearest ER with acute appendicitis. Into surgery and out with a moderately painful incision on my right side.

Good news no infection, bad news---well there is none except I’m out of work for 4 weeks and I won’t be able to wear a bikini anytime soon.

Fortunately Ralph, the co-worker who use to be a medic, quickly took charge and called my friends Yoshi and Lillian, and he found my parents phone number, and with all three kept in touch with them.

Lillian called Frank and Joe and with her and Yoshi brought me home after 3 lovely days at the hospital. I can’t complain, I received excellent and gentle care while there. Mom and Dad made arrangements for Mom to come up by train to stay with me while I got better, Joe picked her up at the station and with all of them plus others helping me, I am in good hands, I still have another 2 weeks to go, but each day the pain is less and I’m getting stronger, and have weaned myself off of vicodin and am on extra strength Tydonol

I am able to sit up and keep in touch at work on those accounts that need monitoring. But I have to admit this is a rough way to get a vacation.

And right now it has been pouring cold rain outside, heavy cold rain with winds, they have passed but it’s still gray, cold and damp. But I am one of those fortunate people that have a fireplace, which on a cold autumn night makes things cozy. Mom has been taking excellent care of me, fussing over me like all loving Mothers do. But I told her that if Lillian wants to take her out to go, all I’m doing is just sleeping and eating right now and walking around to not be stiff.

And everyone comes around so I won’t be bored, amazing how heated a game of Scrabble can become.

So if you don’t hear from me for a while, I’m recuperating.

All of you have a Happy and Safe Octoberfest.

Until Later, Kisses.
