Teh Squeaky Wheel
Sad Tuesday morning coon.
Good morning, GN! Hope everyone has a wonderful day.
It’s a rainy Tuesday here in Happy Larryville, GN; wish we could send some of it to SoCal…
Hope that Elena (and Mac) are doing okay.
I must admit I’m beginning to get a leetle concerned about Ebola as our gummint seems to be more than a bit clueless as well as not being very forthright…rather like their handling of EV-D68. Also pretty irritated so many people are griping that CDC and NIH should be given moar funding, instead of limiting their purviews to their original core missions.
I suppose that makes me human scum being for believing pandemic preparedness trumps fat lesbians.
My friend’s daughter and I wargamed out the Ebola ‘ting when it was only the two missionaries that had returned to Georgia; she’s a biochemist, BTW. The updates and press conferences haven’t been a surprise, but it makes me happy we’re in BFE. o_0
Clowns. We (the tea party) went to the scarecrow festival in Chappel Hill last weekend dressed as scarecrows; full facepaint and everything. I was buying a bracelet, and the the second lady working the booth turned around during the transaction, and all I heard was “Meep!” and then she turned around again. The gal I was working with said, “My partner’s afraid of clowns,” and I said, “I understand, it’s the old chant, ‘Can’t sleep, clowns will eat me…’ “, and the poor girls starts nodding her head vigorously. I promised her I was only staying as long as I needed too. Poor thing.
And now this week is all about our VFD fundraiser. If I’m not at the station, Mr. X will be, and vice versa. It’s going to be a crazy week. It’s already started -- Saturday’s going to be nuts.
Prayers for Mac and Elena, and of course Paddy. Prayers for all y’all, needed, asked for or not.
Back to work-work!
And my nephew (the one whose money my brother’s not actively trying to get), is applying to go live and work in a kibbutz. His mom and I are jealous and wish WE would have thought of something that cool at 22.
Thank you all for the good wishes. The first few days were really bad. She was too nauseous to eat which meant she could not take her pain meds and the pain was intense and she could not sleep. She was desperately tired but could not sleep more than a few minutes and always woke up with sharp pain in her arm or back. The bed, a recliner chair and the sofa all failed. We finally found a hide-a-bed sofa we have worked. It’s an uncomfortable bed but works for her so the last few days she is eating and sleeping and waking up without more than routine pain. It’s a big relief!! The first night she actually got 5 hours sleep I got 3 or 4 in several segments, between helping and checking on her. Much better now and we have our first followup appointment this afternoon. She is now approaching where she was before the surgery so the next five weeks will be easier to face. Then the physical therapy starts.
It is a big relief to see her doing so much better. Last night was the first one where she could sleep without the strong meds, using only OTC meds. Sorry to be late in posting updates but it has been busy around here. Should be much better now.
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning TeX, Sven, Fatwa, and Mac!
Sven -- that ‘coon looks like he could use a good home. Can’t you open your home and your heart for just one more?
TeX -- try not to run yourself too ragged, y’hear?
Mac -- thanks for the update. I’m glad Elena is doing better. Sleep is a wonderful thing -- especially when you aren’t getting any.
So true, Paddy. It is amazing how happy it makes me just to see her eat and sleep. She was hurting so bad the first few days she did not watch one minute of her soap operas!!!!!!!!!!! They were recorded and this weekend she caught up. 😆
That’s a sure sign she’s feeling better!
Hai, TeX, Mac and Paddy (in order of appearance)!
My friend’s daughter and I wargamed out the Ebola ‘ting…
I feel quite certain that if the two of you were in-charge, we’d be responding far more appropriately then with the moh-rons who are supposed to be dealing with this.
Scarecrow / clowns, OTOH…
Glad you finally checked-in; sorry it’s been a difficult several days for Elena -- and you. Very happy to read that things are improving.
Mac- so happy to hear Elena is doing better!
Fatwa- as a fat lesbian, I’m disgusted with the wasted money. Wasn’t it Sam Kinnesan (sp) that said “Stop eating , you fat bas****d!”
Don’t even get me started on Ebola!
I am just sick of all the lies from every direction.
