    MAE ALL...making my posts quick as this public wifi is really flaky.

    Good day today...xray at 7am resulted in pulling the tube out around noon. Plan now is to wean off pain meds and oxygen tonight/tomorrow. I then have to pass the stair test by physio before they'll sign off. If all goes well should be discharged on Thursday.

    Shout out to everyone and when I'm on a more stable network I will post more. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 22 Jan

    Good morning! I got too tired to post last night. Yes, yesterday was my day with that cute little Huxley! He turned 7 months old yesterday. I spent the evening with them too, and got to share a meal with them, and get to see my son-in-law too, and see how cute they are as a little family with their baby. Such nurturing parents!
    Daughter sprained her thumb/wrist area acutely, so I wanted to stay around to help her with a few more things like his bath and nail-trimming, walking dog, fold more laundry, etc. And show them how to feed a baby…counteract all that crap on the Internet such as “baby-led weaning” that unduly influences this crop of new parents …they’re not going to get full if you just throw an orange wedge on their high chair tray! Yikes! Been down this road already with D1 too…grrr.

    And now it’s getting late, and I have to get to the car dealership soon for a recall repair, so will post more later.

    MAE ALL....check in today is positive.

    I am off all pain meds and oxygen. I also passed my stair test this morning. So everyone has signed off except that they want an ultrasound done of my heart. Heart ultrasounds are backlogged right now. As far as my PT feels the proof of how I'm doing is watching me walk up and down stairs with no change in my BP or O2. Hopefully will get the ultrasound soon, or have it scheduled for a later date. It feels like I may be going home tomorrow but we will see.

    Once I'm back on my secure network I will post longer. Thanks for all your encouragement....PPQP

    Re: 22 Jan

    Good evening folks,

    We were supposed to have snow before the rain today but never saw a flake. The chicken yard look like a giant mud hole haha! Regardless of the weather I got out for a hair cut, picked up necessities & gave my grandson a ride home from school. At least I feel like I accomplished something today. I’m starting to get that urge for gardening but I know it’s way too early.

    PQ, sounds like you’re doing great, I’m happy for you! Remember now, you are an ex-smoker, right??
    I hope they get that US done quickly so yo can go rest in your own home!

    Mick, you had yet another grueling Dentist trip, sorry. Hopefully this will be the last for a good long time.
    The Beast was a bit more subdued today. Maybe yesterday’s shots finally got to him, who knows? I’ve never witnessed a bunny fight, I hope that never happens. I was on my way home this afternoon & had to stop & wait for a large flock of turkeys to cross the road, just around the corner from my house. So we really are surrounded by turkeys here, I though so

    Slo, sounds like your Huxley day was good. Nice to be able to help your daughter out with chores & baby care. I never listened to anyone but myself when it came to feeding babies. The so called experts come up with some pretty goofy ideas these days. Common sense still prevails if you let it, right?

    Cyn, hope you’re resting up & comfy today.

    Hello to Sam, Pauly & Det.

    Have a nice night all!

    Mae all -

    PPQ, excellent news on your health and going home... so sorry you had to go through all of this... I hope whatever has caused it has gone away. It will be great to have you back in the land of "adequate" internet. Be safe!

    Lav, believe it or not, we have flocks of wild turkeys here in this city too - they particularly like the golf course close by. Amazing how kids change so quickly... it was interesting to hear that your grandson in not "little buddy" anymore. Glad you got the spray bottle for the kitty! I forgot to recommend that, as I know many friends with cats... I guess that is the one thing that they really hate! Hoping that your days are quieter now, and happy.

    Mick, so you used the spray bottle technique for the bunnies! Did it work well? I'll go back and look at the pics of the kitties, I bet they are cute. AND, HAPPY Robert Burns DAY! I saw all the delicacies that one is supposed to have on this night... I'm not sure that I could pronounce them! I also saw a Canadian and Scots Rugby player having a convo on certain Scottish phrases... "That's Boggin"..."Gien it Lawdly"..."Gaun Yurself... were a few I wrote down. Can't remember what they meant! But if you are celebrating, I hope it is a good night.

    Wishing all well - and inviting anyone struggling to hop on... we have all been through it...
    Cheers,
    TG

    Re: 22 Jan

    Good morning!

    Today’s the big day, PQ! I too hope you can capitalize on the gift of this cigarette-free week, and keep it going! You have a good start now! Your lungs will thank you. My friend’s son had a spontaneous pneumothorax when he was a 22-year-old college student! Scary.

    Turkeys were reintroduced to our state a couple decades ago, and now they are all over the place here.

    Binky is a cute little black kitty! I like his name too.
    My ex always called our cat Boyd “the Beast”. Because he likes dogs and not cats. So now I have the cat and he has the dog.

    “Never question the decision”. Thank you for that, TG. RE my divorce, my new mantra will be, “Browbeaten! Never question the decision.” (Lav has been trying to tell me forever to stop rethinking about it all.)

    That’s exciting to get to see a rocket launch, Lav. That’s sure something one doesn’t see every day.

    I can relate to your adult-like 14-year-old grandson, Lav; because my 14-year-old nephew is suddenly so big and grown-up! I hardly recognize him. And he moved into their basement guest bedroom so he can have his own space from his “little” brother (only 1 1/2 years younger), and is getting into music now…

    The jokes were funny, Mick! Especially the “but I’m on the fence” one.
    Your mouth must feel stretched out after an hour in the dentist’s chair.

    Today I’ll be heading up to D1’s house to enjoy and hopefully be helpful with the young grandchildren.

    Re: 22 Jan

    Greetings friends,

    Still looking for the sun but at least it didn’t rain today. Our TV weather guy just said the 3+” of rain we’ve had so far this month would have been 30” of snow!!!!! No thanks!!!!
    Hopefully when we do get some snow it’s not nearly that much, haha!

    Cyn, more likely than not these turkeys are offspring of the ones my brother-in-law raised & turned loose around here years before we arrived. Apparently the PA Game Commission was worried that there were too few left so he thought he would help out.
    I only sprayed the kitten once yesterday & he hasn’t tried to bite me since, go figure, hope all is well with you

    Slo, I’ve been meaning to ask - how are your gas prices? You do so much driving, could get to be a real pain in the wallet. Hope your grandkid day was good

    Mick, glad all the manicuring is done. Glad I don’t have to take the chickens in haha!!
    I still can’t imagine eating haggis but I suppose some people still do. Maybe in my next life?

    PQ, hope you made it home OK & are comfy as possible.
