First The Dog Died....

This isn't really about Tony's illness, but rather about before his illness. Before he got sick he... Heartily drank Guiness products; no slouch with the Smithwicks, he joined in, happily belching, swaying, and fumbling along with me. One time, he jumped on our neighbor's car in a pouring, pounding... Sign in to see full entry.

TUBES- how they both help and hurt

I've already talked about the miracles of technological advances in modern medicine. I mean, Thank God for the brilliant people who are born who have the brainpower and imagination to realize these wonderful instruments and make dreams a reality! I'm not so sure when the tube was invented, but I'm... Sign in to see full entry.

Like I've been saying, there's many a way to pass the time in the hospital. There's the TV - the most obvious. There's reading - I especially like it when I forget new reading material and I'm forced to read the back of shampoo bottles and the like! There's only so many times I can read the menu for...

Any kind of surgery sucks. Any kind. About 11 years ago, I had surgery to remove a benign cyst on my tailbone. First they thought it was about the size of a quarter, but when the surgeon got in there, whoo, doggy! It ended up being the size of a grapefruit, I had 55 stitches going down my ass, and...

"Bed goes up; Bed goes down..."

Ah, yes... the immortal words of Homer J. Simpson. I have found myself quoting him more and more during this rather fun journey. You know, there's a lot of things that go up/down, in/out, back/forth, etc. at the hospital? When you're trying to occupy your time, you find out all kinds of cool stuff!...

"The Daily Check"

So this is how it goes - "Honey, do my eyes look yellow?" - Ah, yes - always the first question. One minute, I am talking to him in the kitchen, and the next - usually about 15 to 20 minutes later - I notice that I haven't seen him. Then I see the light on in the bathroom. Just so you know, I...

Confessions of A Supposed Homicidal Maniac

"Are you cooking Indian food?" "It smells like Indian spices in here." "Did you make something, uh, 'foreign' for dinner?" "Are you using incense?" The comments of my future mother-in-law. Prone to self-righteousness and the disease of... Sign in to see full entry.

How the hell did this happen to me???

April 30,2005 We had 2 cute puppies. Two puppies. A girl and a boy, a sister and a brother. They were soo freakin' cute! Two little blobs of love, little shih tzus with these little football-shaped heads. The little boy was brindle - brown, with a little black beard around his little mouth, his...

Visiting...and TV

"Visiting" for me has not been those 1 hour, "how-dee-doo" kind of visits. We're talking looong haul, days, hours at a time. I'd watch Tony sleep with 9 trillion thoughts racing through my head varying from utter terror to complete and total love for him. But the long, endless wandering... Sign in to see full entry.

How to "Eat on the Cheap" While Visiting Someone in the Hospital

12 trips to the hospital, with varying degrees of success on my honey, Tony's, part, I came up with some useful food trickery that I find helpful to those of us who are forever deemed..."The Visitor"... 1. The Patient Kitchen: Ah, yes - every floor has a patient kitchen. There's one thing you need... Sign in to see full entry.
