kadesma! Perish the thought! I don't think you've ever hurt ANYONE and especially not me. Thanks for the lovely words. I'm not feeling very nice or kind right now. LOL. I'm feeling a bit Chuck Norrisish.

Isn't it funny how some turns of phrase kind of take on a life of their own? I love that one.

Honestly though, it really does get me bent out of shape to have folks treat me (and everyone really) like we ought to be kneeling at the feet of greatness.

Thanks for letting me get that little bit of snottiness out of my system. I'm done now.
People who have to "bullfrog" about themselves (well another word does come to mind) are insecure..........."Desiderata" by Kahlil Gibran comes to mind "There will always be people lesser than you and greater than you" I bet they don't have many friends either which is more important, you can take your "accomplishments" to the grave and they'll soon be forgotten but friends and family will keep your memories alive long after you're gone whether you are "lesser" or "greater" than them

Well goodness knows, cj, yours was the first name that came to mind when Alix mentioned being bullied! You silly, sweet, wonderful woman! As Alix said, you have never hurt anyone! You are one of the truly nicest people I have ever known.

I'm glad you shared your vent with us Alix. We are here to listen. I hope everything is settled now.

And if cj ever bullies you again, just send her to Dove's woodshed!

Thank you so much everyone for your wishes and caring. You don't know how good it was knowing I had such a wonderful support team at DC waiting for me. Thanks Kades for passing on DH's message and sorry it took so long. I was on IV antibiotics for 8 days and then my doctor admitted me to one hospital (1/2 hour from home) to have surgery to clean out the joint and make sure everything was okay. That was last Monday. After two days of waiting he had me transferred to the original hospital where I had the surgery done on Tuesday night and I was operated on Wednesday afternoon. I was back on heavy anti-biotics until this morning. They also had to replace a plastic piece that fills in for my cartilege because the original one was 2mm too thick and was causing the excess pain and loss of mobility.

I just got home 1/2 hour ago and am going to rest as I am very tired, but glad it is all behind me. No more anti-biotics, no more blood thinner shots in my stomach and no more pain killers!

Thanks again and it is so good to be back!
