Thanks. I really don't feel too bad. Just an occasional cough and a little chest tightness.

I'm feeling fine, still having some problems with pain. But they are helping me out with that as much as they can. And Shrek forgot my teeth...so I am fairly harmless right now. Hugs, Fiona
I have been missing out a few days, still getting caught up. Hope you are healing up in a happy & positive way, or as happy & positive as it can get! Take it easy, let shrek take care of you, I'm sure he is good at it. He sounds very nuturing & caring. Keeping pressure on our incision,as you know, will help reduce the pain, especially when coughing or laughing My 10" front incision is healed up after last April. Funny how I can feel it from the inside when I lift to much weight. Take care!

You aren't going shopping yet are you?
We at DC got together and are sending you a fluglehorn. It weighs under 9 pounds and works much better than a bell.

Enjoy!

It is. I have spent a too much time playing with that. I think it's designed for 3 year olds. I first got a link to it in the '90s.

Oh no. Please, please get to your doctor! Mamma was very sick with this and she still is not very well. I'm thinking of you!

With love,

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.
Yes! Too much excitement! We'll never forget this visit, I'm afraid. I think it's too much to ask them to come back next year!

You are not stupid! I've been having very much broth and water and juice and eating lightly sometimes. I've been napping and sleeping very much and it is why I'm so very behind on everyone's postings here. I'm sorry to be so far behind.

Papa is leaving Monday and we have been talking so very much. Carl and Laki will leave today (it is early Sunday) to go back to the dorm and to home. So, I hope to be back to school maybe sometime of the 13th if I'm well. I should be well, I think. If not, I'll stay here until I can return.

I'll try to catch up here, but we all are much better and if I stop posting, a nap attack has revisited me.

Lucky for you all, yes?

With love to all of you,
~Cat
