I only have a moment today but want to pass along an update from Wolfe. I spoke to her for just a couple of minutes this morning and she is doing as well as could be expected under the circumstances. As I have little doubt you understand anything that inhibits respiratory function will affect Wolfe far most than it will most people. Fortunately her PA and others caring for her seem to recognize that and are taking precautions. The have her heavily medicated right now and are keeping her out of the cold as much as possible. I believe she is being well taken care of and will be OK. However a few extra prayers wound not hurt right now.

Will do.

SR, do they do breathing treatments on her?

Otherwise, I'm pretty good...my boy's birthday is Monday. I'm making him homemade pizza for dinner...and I have a job lead that I'm going to follow up on immediately after the surgery!

Hope you and yours are good.

Thanks for passing that along for me.

Thanks Dinky. I like the idea of rest, but doubt I'd be able to get better help there. At least here I'm 300 yards away from a medic when I'm in my room. OTOH, the thought of being someplace warm is really appealling. I'm so tempted to take my disability payments and move someplace that stays warm year-round, like near the equater. Wonder if I'll have enough $$$ to hire a full-time Cabana Boy. Anyone in here want to apply for the job?

On the subject of going someplace warm, I've got a thread running looking for suggestions about where to go for my vacation trip I'm planning this summer. Anyone with any input is invited to go here and chime in.

Need Gulf Coast Resort Suggestions Please

They are right now, because of the infection. Usually those treatments wouldn't do me much good because my problems are from an injury, not an illness. My therapist does work on trying to improved my breathe capacity. That's been ongoing the whole time I've been in therapy.

Glad you're finally getting the surgery you need, and I'll be praying for you. I do understand what you mean when you say you wish you could breathe without hurting. It's not like when our leg hurts we can sit down, or rest the arm that's hurting. We have no choice but to keep breathing. Well, we do have a choice, but it might piss off a few GT'ers.

I've spent the last few days even more doped up that usual, couching and hurting from this infection. My PA is trying to walk a line between keeping me from coughing and aggravating my injury, and not being able to clear some of this infection out. They've been keeping a short leash on me, making me stay inside except to go eat and shower, plus a couple hours today to work during the warmest part of the day. 'Warmest' is relative, since it hasn't gotten above freezing here in weeks. As bad as this one hurts, it's still not as bad as the one I got last summer, so there's a least a little consolation.

I'd best get back to my room now, there's a medic that's going to come by with some meds and to check and make sure I didn't sneak out or anything like that....

Thank you Wolfe...I know your pain is much more than mine, and I'm sorry if it ever sounds as though I don't realize that.

Today has been a really s*itty day, and I'm waiting impatiently for it to be over. Have a good night all

I spoke to Wolfe again today and she is improving but still sick. She has spent most of the time in bed and heavily medicated and even tells me she is following doctors orders to stay in bed. She might even be telling the truth about that part.

Lady Glock no one is discounting the pain you have including Wolfe. While yours may be different it is still very real and you remain in our prayers also.

Oh, that sucks... Worst thing for a lung infection is to let it sit- It needs those deep breaths and coughs to clear it, yet with that chest damage... Damn, talk about a catch 22. (European-style 'air hugs' of course)

...Man, nothing like a visit here sometimes to remind me how blessed I am... Thanks, I think?

Our bit of turmoil last week was that one of our two latest rescue kittens turned out to be an imposter... Both were girls, according to the vet. Great, we'll take 'em. They were really little, and bonded easily with the dog, and reasonably easily with the other cats, and guinea pig... (One of them actually got the cage open, and was found curled up napping next to the guinea pig's house.) Fast forward six months, and it turns out one of them is a Maine Coon, and getting big.... 14 pounds at 6 months or so.) So she's grooming herself last week, and "Dust Bunny" (named by my littlest based her appearance as a itty bitty thing) is in that classic "zero dignity" cat pose, with her leg up in the air, licking her crotch, and what to my wondering eyes does appear, but a little red pepper standing proudly at attention... "What the..." Yup, two fur-covered dangly-bits... "Son of a..."

So, *that's* been taken care of, but we have our fingers crossed that the little girl was behind the boy in sexual maturity.... We hadn't noticed any amorous behavior, so *hopefully* we're o.k.... ;-) Otherwise we'll be looking to place some Burmese-Maine Coon crosses...

By the way, I hear certain places in Latin America are all the rage as destinations for more adventurous American retire-ees... And yes, you might find that in Costa Rica you *could* afford a housekeeper and cook on your disability + pension... I'd love to retire in that kind of style! Supposedly in some areas you can even find a decent little expat community, etc. Just do us a favor and get a place with a guest house so we can all come visit!

I'm not so sure of that, it seems I have much better meds to control mine. And maybe you have a better pain tolerance than I do. Even if it is, your pain is worse to you because it's yours and you have to live it. So there's nothing for you to apologize for.

I hope your bad day is over and the next ones are so much better.

I've had to follow doc's orders about not doing much because I get dizzy when I try to move much, plus I'm so doped up. I got permission to be here now, I told the medic what a bunch of worried GT'ers might do to him if he kept me from getting online.

Our bit of turmoil last week was that one of our two latest rescue kittens turned out to be an imposter... Both were girls, according to the vet. ...............

............ Just do us a favor and get a place with a guest house so we can all come visit!
That's funny about the kitties, and reminds me of a time I was considering adopting an older kitten from a pet store display that the Humane Society set up on weekends. The kitty was a slim built tabby who's cage was clearly marked as being a female. I talked to 'her', then reached in and petted, then kitty turned around so I could apply a back scratch. There, plain as day, was the twig and berries. This was a very short haired cat, no mistaking them! I said to the lady running the adoption "If that's a girl, what are THOSE?", pointing at the package. The lady got an embarassed look and took the card off the cage and scratched the 'fe' off the beginning of 'male'.

Moving down someplace like that might be just the ticket. Warm temps, my disability stretching to cover expenses. And hess yes, there'll be a guest house with a standing invite for GT'ers to come down and stay. Beer included!

As for the infections and similar complications, welcome to the rest of my life. This is the third URI that I've had, in addition to other problems. I've been forewarned that I'll have things like this until one of them kills me. In fact yesterday when the doctor was with me I said that this was going to be what kills me and he said "You're probably right, just not this time". So I guess it just feels like I'm dead I guess.

I'm still coughing and hurting, but not quite as bad today as the last few. My PA and doc here have been on the ball dealing with this, and my PA's been trying to make me as comfortable as possible, which I know hasn't been easy.

OK, got to get back, time for my meds again. Nite all, and thanks for the extra prayers.
