Hey, Mama! I'm sorry I've been gone a while. Just dealing with some RL stuff that made lol'ing difficult and physically painful at times. (Wonky neck- just popped back into place) Still may be gone a bit, since RL stuff isn't quite over, but the important thing is both parents are fine. I heard through a little bird that people were worried one of them had something very bad happen.
Back at ya, Mama! And the "treat" was two minutes of pure beauty. That's better than chocolate. Well, this week it's better than chocolate. Two weeks from now, I'll want the chocolate. But the beauty does remain! Hope your day was great.
Yay! No surgery is a good thing. Hopefully, you can beat the crap out of that infection. I trust you. You're tough. Mom's being difficult because they won't let her lie in bed all day and she's been acting out. But I figure that in another month, she'll be settled in and loving it.
ROFL!!! Mom got moved to a new ward in the hospital on Thursday. This new place is not a medical ward, it's more of a nursing home that just happens to operate out of the hospital. She's now required to be dressed, and as a result, her name has had to be put on everything. In the process of getting her clothes ready, I noticed that her bras are in slightly brutal condition, with the foam falsies coming out. So I've been sewing the boobs into Mom's bra so I can take it up to her when I see her next. Now, more importantly, how'd you do with the surgeon? Can they fix the infection?
We've had Irish here since 1822. A lot came over before the Potato Famine as part of a poverty relief effort, and once the 'taters got blighted, more arrived. We actually had an issue with factional violence here until the 1900s. There were regular dust-ups between the Orangemen and the local Catholics, including one St. Patrick's day parade that the Orangemen decided to cancel in person. Ah, but it's better now. I think when the Anglos and other groups caught St. Paddy's Day fever, it wasn't worth it to create chaos anymore.
Prune-flavored Activia does seem rather Oxymoronic! Yuck! Butte has a very rich Irish heritage and history (Think Mini-Boston). St. Patty's is a GINORMOUS deal here. The green beer is consumed from 8 am on--
You have to eat about three times the Activia but at least it tastes better. Unless you get the prune flavour, which just seems wrong to me. We've got -18 C and clear skies, but our parade was held yesterday so that down town traffic would not be disrupted and more families could participate. I'm sure that won't stop the hard-core party crowd.
Thanks for the wishes and info. I have been eating as much yogurt as I can take (Hate the stuff....shame on me!) I never thought of Activia because I have never had a bad stomach before. We are having some blizzardy conditions today. The uptown parade is supposed to start in about 15 minutes and I pity the crazy folks who WILL be out in it, drinking cold beer! The wind is gusting to 35 mph but we are in between flurries at the moment! Hope you are warm and smiling...I know I am. (It's just SO. DAMN. GOOD. to be back with my good friends like you!!). Much love!
Glad to see you're well enough to make an appearance today! Hope that the meds manage to clear out the mystery bug and you get a full recovery going. And you may want to stockpile Activia or ask for the hard-core flora-restoring yogurt. I know too well what strong antibiotics will do to delicate lady guts! Hugs and healing.
