I'm watching the Saturday Night Live Christmas Special, as I must every year. Such classics! Looking forward to Shweatty Balls.

Oh my Cat. I hope this is not your way of practicing on how to get sutures. Or maybe a yearly tradition of celebrating the holidays? That is not an American's idea of recreation. Maybe you and Carl need a three wheeler bicycle. Or maybe training wheels?

Take care and rest. Let your body heal. And of course the meds are going to make you feel woozy. They are supposed to. That is what they are designed for.

Take it easy for awhile Cat. You want to be all healed up for Christmas, it's just a few short days away....

Thank you all! I do hope all of you are doing better than I am. Luckily, classes are over so I don't have to sit there.

Right now we're watching the original Addam's family episodes. These are so funny! It hurts to laugh, but these are so very good for me now.

With love,
~Cat

When I was first retired, Addie, I found myself hurrying about little stuff. I just kept reminding myself that I was retired, and that there was no hurry. I still have to remind myself to relax and not hurry occasionally. it helps, but even now, 5 years later, it still crops up sometimes..

Four weeks was all I could stand. I went back to work.

Just don't forget that "three o'clock wall" that all surgical patients face. As a nurse you know it is very real. Just ask SimonBaker. She had a hard time getting past that. I personally think it is a residual effect of the anesthesia.
The surgeon said that if I really wanted to go back to work early, he would sign off on it, but only for half a day. Heck, I can't drive for two weeks.

Take it easy and laugh loudly. Laughter is good for healing. Poor Carl and Aiza...they must feel terrible. You do your best to make them laugh, too!

Hugs and Love,
Fiona

Oh yes we are laughing! Here's what is so very funny about this:

Last night, Carl told me he loves me. I think I'm in love with him also, and I told him this. We hugged, and I got kissed. Carl is staying with us but we aren't doing anything wrong. He sleeps upstairs in the other guest room next to DA's bedroom. Mamma has been sleeping down here with me when Lakisha isn't spending the night here.

Today, he ran over me. On the way to the emergency room, I told Carl he had one h3ll of a way to show me his love. Papa laughed and said Carl was very bad at assassinations attempts. Gwen said (about that news story when the new wife pushed her new husband over a cliff) the next time Carl wants to kill me, he should at least find a good, steep hill to push me over.

I said Carl should have taken an insurance policy of me before trying to kill me, and Papa said this: "What makes you think he hasn't?" And he winked at Carl. Carl smiled at Papa and winked at him.

I'm sure some may be offended at this, and I apologize if anyone is. It was just very funny as I was being taken to the emergency room after being run over by my new boyfriend.

It's our way of making Carl understand this wasn't his fault. I do hope all of you see the humor in this, and won't mistake of this for my taking Vicodin and Soma.

With love,
~Cat
