Then I gave him a 'thumbs up'. That is when the doctor said I was fine and removed the tube.

I slept a lot for the first week in the hospital, then started to get antsy. Let Mr. Munky sleep if he wants to. He body will have had quite a shock. Any invasion with a scalpel is a shock. And when he gets home, there is that three o'clock wall. He will wake up in the morning feeling full of spit and vinegar. Then comes three o'clock wall and there is no way on earth you will be able to keep him awake.

I wish the best for the both of you. You both are facing a very daunting time. Mr. Munky will surprise you every day. Enjoy each other's company. Plenty of rest and lots of loving care.
Addie,
What you went through to become a member of the " Zipper Club"
Is completely different than what my husband and I are facing.
He DOES have other medical issues that could complicate his surgery and recovery. Everyone is unique!

In the future I'd appreciate your comments telling ME what to do.What to expect and for Pete's sake keep the graphics out of it completely.
I know already!

I made some elkhorn sumac tea. DH thinks I'm trying to poison him. Yes, there's poison sumac (causes a rash similar to poison ivy) out there, but elkhorn is perfectly safe. I clipped some more drupes yesterday. Nice lemony flavor.

Didn't one of the Roman Empire's Statesman drink sumac in order to commit suicide?

Thank you Andy. I knew it was something from a tree. Just couldn't remember which tree.

Today I was going to the store on my scooter. At the end of our property there is one of five HUGE oak tree along the sidewalk. I have been riding under it for the past ten years and the multitude of acorns have never bothered me. Today, one fell from the tree and landed squarely on my head. That dang thing hurt.

I used to drink that back in my hippie daze!

Now it is imported as a spice!
