Yep, true. Male calicos are really rare. I posted a pic of one in the Caturday thread a while back. Actually a cat doesnít have to be a calico, it can be a tortie with no white and still almost always be a girl. As long as the cat has 2 non-white colors. Cat colors are carried on the X chromosome, females have 3, while the males have an X and a Y. On the rare occasion you see a male calico itís a genetic screw-up with XXY chromosomes.

Nice! I like the effect too. Where it that?

Speaking of pics, I took this one earlier this evening. Apparently SOMEONE told Mandy that she couldnít have any chocolate, and she grabbed my knife out of my locker and was waiting on meÖÖÖ..

Have you been thrashing around in your sleep? Great news that there is some healing. Hopefully the meds will reduce the inflamation. The constant pain has to wear on you. Just remember that you are one tough lady. I'm really proud of you LW. Hang in there.

And you know I'm proud of you, too.

At least now your doc knows what's wrong and can develop a plan for it. Considering you shouldn't even be alive it's terrific that your inside injuries are healed.

No wonder you hurt. I mean now. I haven't forgotten the original cause.

Now we know what to pray for. For Mr Inflammation to go away.

Mandy's looking a little wired and frazzled in that pic. You HAVE been squeezing the stuffing out of her, haven't you?

I think you might want to reconsider the chocolate. She looks out for blood.

Wolfe when you talked to me you said this a little differently. What you told me was that your doctor thought you had healed as much as you were going to but would never be fully healed. Is that what you meant here or did your doctor define it in more detail than you gave me?

There are many of us who are very proud of you including me. You have come a long way and have overcome a lot of adversity along the way. I hope you doctor can figure out what keeps causing you these setbacks instead of just throwing more meds at them. If you can fix the problem at the cause you might be able to reduce your meds and still be able to function. Is there any chance that sawgrass might be right about you thrashing enough in your sleep to cause it?

BobInTX I doubt Wolfe has forgotten the original cause of her pain either.

You must, youíre trying to help me.

And those are beautiful pics in spite of being taken on a cell phone. My slow connection appreciates their small size. And I appreciate you showing them to me.

I know I thrash around some because of the nightmare and such, but doc thinks this is a lot worse than just thrashing would cause. I know I havenít launched Mandy for a while, so maybe Iím just wishful thinking that Iím not thrashing too badly in my sleep. Maybe I should press him more on the subject.

You thought I was kidding, didnít you? I wasnít, that poor cat has caught hell from me. I think sheíd like to use that knife on me even if I did give her my chocolate.

No, you've got it right. I worded it badly, I think. My doc has said all along that I'll never heal completely or be like I was before. I understood what he said to mean that I was getting close to as healed as I'm going to get. I guess that means I'll have to be stoned all the time like I am now because of the pain. Not what I look forward to in life.

I don't know what you are still doing there. I don't think you are going to know until you get back home. You're not going to find it in Iraq, so it may be a while before you find out. I think some of the rest of us here don't know why we are here, either, so you're not alone in that.

Nah, Mandy's not going to hurt you. She needs someone to go to the DFAC for her to get cookies.

I'm hoping you just left your computer on and you're not still on it at this hour.

OK. Bob and I are totally on the same wave link again and we have not talked. LW, are you thinking about the next step? Coming home.

Bob, fishing was absolutely fantastic today. We caught at least 100 fish, representing 10 different species. We brought home enough walleye for a few days. We threw back anything under 15" and over 22". It was GREAT!

LW, you aren't in any shape for me to kick your behind. Coming from a place of love of course.

Go to bed, if conditions permit, close your eyes and think of something that soothes you. I want to sit on your deck and admire your trees!

Sawgrass, I could go to the same spot tomorrow and not catch a dang thing. That's my kind of luck. ha ha

When I said I didn't know what she was still doing there it was in reply to her saying "So why am I still here" in response to me saying that she shouldn't even be alive.

I know why she's in Iraq. To get medical and psychiatric care and save up some money. And also because, ironically, she feels safer there than she does in her own house. Right, LW?

I know Giving Up is there with you tonight. Tell him to get lost.

Me too.

I have to do some repair work on my deck and restain it before our family reunion this year. Y'all can come drink beer and supervise. Tell Mandy if she don't behave I'll use her as a paint applicator. She better watch out though, cause there are a couple of Toms hanging around here. I'd hate for her to go home pregnant.

Yes, and to take his friends with him.

I 'got' the rest of Bob's post but I am starting to think about you coming home LW. I can't help but think about the effects of you still being there and heading for the bunkers. I guess to some degree I thinking about the chicken and the egg.

We love you LW. Maybe no hugs, just know that we are all within arms reach and waiting for whatever you need.

You'd have it easy if you wanted to kick my ass.

I'm in bed, just can't sleep. I almost did earlier, but Mr Nightmare was waiting on me. I'll try again in a few minutes, as stoned as I am I should have long since been alseep.

Yep, right on all counts. Especially #'s 1, 2, and 4. Seems ironic to listen to the base getting blown up again and feel safe, right?

He's got some friends here with him and they sure can make their ideas sound appealing.;

They are all LIARS, remember that.

Would it help if I stayed and patted you on the back while you're going to sleep? That's what I used to do with my kids.
