Shrek is fine. I told him to not be surprised when I got tired of his hovering. The not lifting more than 10 pounds has him trying to anticipate what I am doing. I finally told him that I would ask for help with anything I didn't think I could handle.

No bell? Bummer. I'll bet you could find some "interesting" noises to play on your computer.

You aren't going shopping yet are you?

We went to Walgreen's for a prescription, which I had to show ID for and then the grocery store. Gave me a good walk.

I'll find some noisemaker to summon him...

Thanks, Rocket!

I was admiring the Robot one second and the next the doc was explaining that I'd had complications...being under is so fast, I'm fairly certain I'm happy not getting a ringside seat. Poor Shrek had to wait out for two hours for a supposed 1 hour surgery. One of the pre-op nurses came and told him 1.5 hours in that there were problems. It was a rough couple days for him.

I'm babysitting the nieces. Just got them in bed. Made up a bedtime story and had them help figure out what waa going to happen in it. We had a lot of fun. They're quiet already, which could mean they are going to go to bed well, or could mean they are being sneaky. Going to have to listen closely until they fall asleep.

I am sitting here looking at my floor. I am going to call the city first thing Monday morning and tell them to just dump a load of salt rock and sand right in the middle of my floor and get it over with for the winter season. It gets caught in the ridges of Spike and The Pirate's work boots. So of course they track it in. No, they can't be taking their boots off out in the hall. It is public area. Imagine if every apartment had a slew of foot wear out there. I used to have a small rug outside my door. But It was causing my scooter to slide every time I rode over it. So I had to remove it. Too dangerous.

Spike bought a new outfit for Teddy. He looks like a Sherpa herder. Will have to take a picture tomorrow when he comes up tomorrow. It is lined with sheep's wool and the outside is like brown suede.

Glad to have you back, Fi.

Carol, I didn't think you were making light of anything. Sorry if I came across that way.

The last time I had anesthesia I rolled right into the vicadin, so I'm not really sure when one ended and the other started
