I can't be too alone, I open my computer and have you folks in here. And, of course, Jeff here in spirit. I think about it a lot, it's too much for me to deal with by myself.


I went to a Friends of NRA banquet tonight, because Jeff was honored, plus I was given his ticket. It went OK for the most part, but I had to unass the room when they decided to start handling guns in there. Luckily there was only a few, and nothng that resembled an AK-47.

LW, I'm not good with words, but my heart aches for you. I wish we could take the burden out of your pack and spread it around.

Well, that too. No wig?

My point exactly.

Unass?

I just wanted to let everyone on this thread know that I will be having surgery on my back on Tuesday, 9/18 in the morning. No hardware so hopefully all will go smooth. I'd appreciate your prayers.

Good luck to you Bob, I hope that's all it takes to get you going. Be praying for you.
Having mine 10-4 amd I get the works, rods screws and cages. Said there is a lot more risk this time because of what I've had done in the past and the fact I'm so weak from laying around for years.

You know that you got prayers, too. I really hope this time makes the difference.

Yep, I did. Although it was long and painful. Got delayed in Atlanta for a few hours, that broke Delta's perfect record on these WV trips I've made. All this traveling has been hard on me, I was hurting so bad last night even the Dilaudid wasn't taking it down enough. Still bad today, but not quite so much. Guess I better stay off planes for a while, eh?

That said, I don't regret making those 3 trips at all. A good friend deserves what I can do for them, even if all it is is to sit beside them and hold their hand in their last days. I don't make real life friends easily, but if I do, it means a lot to me. I've made a couple as a result of this thread, and also some people I've never met, but would if I could and am sure I'd count them as friends too. There's a lot of good people in here and Jeff was a shining example. I miss his friendship, his emails, and his encouraging posts in here. He's the one person who's been in here since the beginning, and it meant a lot to me.

Thank you, Breadman. I wish you could too, but by spreading it on the ground so no one had to bear it. I'd really love a break from everything that's going on in my life for the last few years.

So you ready to join me in some stoned posting? BTW, Bob's surgery has been moved back to 1PM. So now you know when to concentrate your prayers, rain dances, and good thoughts.

That'd be cool! Wonder how much trouble we could get in.

Rst hasn't been easy t get for almost 4 years, now. Between nightmares, breathing troubles, pain, etc, it seems I'll never sleep through a night again.

On the subject of sleep and nightmares, Mandy has a friend. Mini Mitch lives with me now, I just couldn't send him to be cremated. OK, actually he gave me those pitiful kitty eyes, so I rescued him after he said good-bye to his daddy. I was expecting Mandy to be jealous, but she seems OK with her new friend. In fact, I think they're plotting against me.
