My left knee — on which I had surgery last year — has snapped several tendons again.

I will be out of commission for at least 10 days.

I hope.

:( Sorry to hear that Butch. The only good thing about surgery is the morphine. :?

Sorry. The doctor won't allow morphine. I will be using Toradol. (Or, as I call it, "The Happy Norwegian"!)

Butch, my Godfather, was taken into the hospital very early this morning. He has a severe case of the flu. The flu vaccine is 'cooked' inside egg yolk and he his highly allergic to eggs. Thus no flu shot. He was coughing up blood. He is being kept artificially asleep so that he will heal. I'll post more as we learn more.

The 'doctors' (quacks in MY opinion) say he'll be there about a week.

Geez, well honestly, the flu shot was about 23% effective this season, so rather useless anyway. Best of luck to Butch, we'll be thinking of him and wish for a speedy recovery.

At 4:20 AM PST a blockage occurred cutting of 82% of lung function AND blocking the esophagus.

Butch is in surgery and at this point only 50% survival rate is expected, although it should improve depending on what they find.

I'm trying to be brave. I'm crying while writing this.

I DON'T WANT TO LOSE MY DADDY!

It turns out they stabilized him then sent him to the University of Washington Hospital, and a specialist from the School of Medicine performed the surgery. Surgery started ay 8:50 AM PST and ended at 11:35 AM PST. Butch is stable, but critical condition. The next day will tell if will survive.

I HOPE, I HOPE, I HOPE.

(I won't wish because Id 'never had a wish come true.)

Everyone's prayers are with you and your family.

Hopefully Butch comes through this good to go.

I am back. I can't talk above a whisper, yet, so I'll only post occasionally (I sleep a lot).

Thanks to my Goddaughter, Eadie, and my adopted brother, Pye-rate, for looking after me.

No, 499 to go : I just got 19501

And thanks to you folks for being patient.

Glad you made it through Butch.
You are made of sterner stuff than the doctors thought I think. :dance:



Good to have you back, and hopefully you feel like posting a bit more soon.
