Hi Ogress! I'm glad you are feeling better also! He forgot your teeth? Did he go back and get them? Poor Shrek was probably very anxious to bring you home and he just overlooked this.

We're all still thinking of you very much. I hope the pain doesn't last for you long. I'm glad to see you!

With love,
~Cat

Poor Shrek is just worn out. It has been quite the day for him. I got him up at 4:30 this morning. Had to send him home because he was falling asleep. I have one more pm to send and then I'm going to go to sleep myself!

I thought you might be interested in these articles. It's amazing how busy our minds and bodies are while we're sleeping.

Cat, my first reaction to when I become scared or worried is to get angry. Stupid, I know. And that is what I was feeling when Lakisha sent us the news. But I am glad to hear that you are getting real rest. And it wouldn't hurt you to take in some of that soup you made for Mama. Chicken soup has a lot of medicinal qualities when you are sick. When my daughter has pneumonia, she had two lobes that had fluid in them. I made a pot of broth for her and put it in a thermos and brought it to the hospital. The nurses had her take small sips and by day three, she was able to breath without the oxygen. The doctor said that it was the soup that made her want to fight back and get better. She had no idea that I had been sitting by her bed for more than 24 hours. It was when the nurse gave her that sip of the broth, that she started to recover. She knew I was there.

My goodness, you certainly have had an eventful visit with your parents. Never a dull moment in your home. If I show up at your door someday, turn me around and send me right back home. Too much excitement there.

Look at that folks. She is on the road to mend. Already she is complaining.

When I had my abdominal surgery, I had my husband bring in my heart pillow they gave me when I had my heart surgery. Boy, did I have everyone confused! LOL

I did good with my heart surgery. It was my gastro surgery that I had a hard time with. I had the staples in for two weeks, and had a bar for lifting myself up to a sitting position. When Poo came in and saw it, he asked me to swing on it. He thought it was a trapeze bar. Oh it hurt so bad to laugh at that. I kept having complication after complication. Between the heart and the gastro surgery, I now have a scar the length of my whole torso. I have lost count of the number of surgeries I have had. And now I am facing gall bladder surgery. Oh well, may as well get it over with. My attitude has always been, "Okay, lets do it and get it over with so I can get back to doing what I want to do." I now consider surgery just a minor inconvenience that interrupts my day.

Yes, it does have the "pause and serve" feature which the old one didn't have. He did it anyway, just put a large mug under the drip while he poured his cup of coffee then poured the coffee in the large mug back into the basket. I am usually up before him and most days the coffee is brewed before he gets up.

They let PF out already or did she just get her hands near a keyboard? I hope the latter.

Well, at any rate I am thankful the procedure went well. And rest well. No wheel chair races in the hallway today.
