Seriously, I can't believe it worked out so well. Hope you both can get some much deserved rest and peace.
Thanks, Dawg!

He only had one nurse I wanted to throttle What a ditz! Overall, while not a wonderful experience, it was good to see the excellent hospital staff in action.

Okay...I'm off to bed!

Yep, most of us call all discs Frisbees though. Sort of like calling all tissue, Kleenex. It was the easiest way to explain it.

There has to be at least one ditzy nurse. I think that is a requirement. So glad things are going better.

Oh, Princess Fiona, I am so sorry. Having spent a month dealing with it all my heart goes out to you. At least you're in the know with medical stuff. Sometimes I want to scream when I have to deal with medical staff and throttle a few people because they won't let me know what is going on.

Sure you complain about Shrek PF. But it is always done with love. And that comes through. When your boss comes back, take a four day weekend Fri-Mon and shut off the phone. You can baby Shrek. And we all know how men love to be babied when they have even just an ingrown hair. Just remember to take care of yourself also.
You both are in my prayers.

Shrek will be going to my facility, so he won't be calling me at work telling me he can't find this or that, etc. He'll be at work so I can keep an eye on him and know he is still getting first class care.

PF I am sorry to hear about Shrek, I will keep both of you in my prayers!

It is nice that you will be able to keep an eye on him at your facility.

Ya better throw a couple of bedpans in the freezer!

When I worked in a small community hospital, and there weren't any babies in the nursery, I was on the floor. I loved it when males came in for AP surgery. The next morning or even sooner it was necessary to get them up and out of bed as soon as possible. Now we all know how short those lovely hospital gowns are on men. I would go in and throw the blankets back to the bottom of the bed. They would immediately try to cover their genitals and reach for the blanket at the same time. The whole idea was to get them moving. And it worked. Then when you told them they had to sit up and dangle, then get up and into a chair, . You would have thought that we wanted them to die right there. We were trying to kill them. The incentive to get them to cooperate was to have a pair of PJs on the chair to put on. That was their prize for being a good boy.

I'm awfully sorry to hear of Shrek's illness. Good grief, what a week! I think this calls for administration of chocolate to the Princess. Lots of chocolate. Sending many wishes for Shrek's speedy recovery.
