OH geez!

WTF is it with Hospitals ATM?

My father was put in last weekend, My wife had to go in yesterday and Now I hear Bob has become an inmate.
I hope it is not complications with his hand and he gets through it as well as Dad and the Mrs Did.

Have you been Ringing or emailing him OG?

Yep, makes you think about what you're spending your limited time on and with who.  I had a close scrape with an adverse reaction to radioactive iodine treatment a month ago, still dealing with a 2 foot long DVT in my right leg. Now a walking stroke/embolism.  Got my will and medical power of attorney updated, and organizing papers and such.  Small projects and getting maintenance up to snuff...no big ones for now.

Geez Bruce are you OK?
Will it clear itself or do you have to have an operation?

It's scary to read of someone talking about getting their affairs in order although that said, i was only saying to my mrs the other night I think our wills  would be out of date now and not even really sure where they are so might be time to update them.  I think we last did them when the kids were born.

Being the Jolly sort I am I was thinking about this last year when we went OS. If the plane crashed and our daughter was lost too, who would we want to leave everything too? There are nices and nephews but they will be well looked after by their families so I was actually thinking of some other younger non relatives i know.

Same as If I ever won some millions on the lotto.  There is one young guy that's been a family friend since he was in kindergarten. He has difficulties with Turretts and ADHD or whatever and can be one hell of a handful but has a heart of Gold and I have for a long time thought of him as a second son. Hes taller than me now and fit and strong as an Ox and every time I see him, he walks up, gives me a big hug and a kiss and that means 100 times more to me than if he was Miss World. I usually get about 3 when he is leaving as he hates to leave anywhere.

 I'd set him up with some sort of trust fund and a business of his own and someone to watch over him.  I don't know how this would be done but If I had the money, I could make anything happen. His family are great and we are close to them too so they would get letters the house was paid off and there was a bit of something extra in the bank now as they have all done it pretty tough over the years too. 

 I find myself enjoying being around young people now where before they used to annoy the ship out of me. Their music still does but seeing their energy and enthusiasm for life which long ago left me is something I do enjoy.

I really hope Bob is OK. I expected him to be recovering with his hand now and taking it easy. The way some hospitals are now with infection is not good. Maybe he just got sick of reading my crap here so took a break. Lets hope that's all it is.

Hospitals are a great place to get sick, I'm worried for Bob too.

The outrageou$ drug Eliquis didn't touch the clot at all according to repeat ultrasound, so I see a vascular surgeon Thursday.  The risk of complications is significant.  Two other veins are now carrying the flow fairly well, no swelling or pain if I wear the graduated compression knee sock.  Perhaps one more thing to limp to the finish line with, I hope. 

I have the Listeroid and wood base a bath today, total scrub down and degrease, TSP and rinse.  I'm going to re-paint the base after it dries out well, it's fine but needs some new paint. I'm now a fan of Behr's Premium Plus latex for everything not underwater.  With a respirator I can do it myself.

I would Imagine having ultrasounds don't do you any good Either Bruce. Probably even going anywhere medical related is not good for you.  I do hope it comes good for you.
At least if you are still able to do things and move around that has to be a  good sign.

I feel half dead today even though I am as fine as I normally are not.
Up at 4am yesterday morning to take the Mrs hot air ballooning.  Got some nice pics of her and the friend that went with her... I certainly wasn't going to go in the thing.  Finished off with a Photoshoot which I haven't done in a long time and then being the good Blo.... sucker I am, stayed up till 2am editing and sending her some shots to use for an interview for a campaign she had today.

Even still I can't sleep properly and after 5 Hours I was up again to feel like a wet rag all day. Now it's come over overcast and blowing a gale but I could  hear my 70 yo neighbour out there working away and embarrassing the hell out of me again.  Man gets 5 times as much done as I ever do.  :embarassed:

Just had my go at the hospital (UC San Francisco) for getting the cancerous half of my liver taken out.  OMG.  I'd have thought that they would have some modern pain meds by now.  I don't have the common receptors for all the opioid based drugs, and my alternative - Tylenol 500  (with half a liver, 500 is all I can have)  did nothing.   So i'm slowly coming back up to speed myself

Hey Mike,
I thought I was the only one who couldn't do opioids.  Likewise, my liver function and gut make NSAIDs a bust.  Pot takes the edge off for me, though I can't handle that too often or vertigo gets bad, and I can only handle the high CBD, very low THC stuff.  I've been using the same 1.5 oz for 3 years and counting. 

I hope you cheat death and the remains of your liver stay cancer free for a long, long time.

Bruce

i had a friend take the big pill yesterday.  I was going to stop by today.

This world just marches right on whether you're in step or not.  Next keyboard action is writing a friend that is recovering from a double lung reduction surgery.  Most of us that smoke or have smoke for very long have enlarged lungs.  It's how the respiratory system copes with super contaminated air.  Then as we age and don't breath as heavy our lungs don't get all of the moisture pumped out and problems start building.  Don't worry, I'm not going to get on my soapbox about the conspiracy to commit mass murders by the tobacco industry today.

Steve's decision was his. 

Good bye Steve.

Sorry to hear about your friend Casey.
Every year I DON'T go to a funeral I look back on it as being a good year.  The bad years I have attended 8 and done that more than one year.  Makes you wonder how there is anyone you know left.

Your Comment about the tobacco industry and your friends decision is a poignant one. Where is the line between having something " sold" to us and making our own decisions?  I doubt it's all one sided one way or the other.

Getting a bit worried about Bob now. Been waiting for him to pop up and say he's fine but his absence is most noticeable.
I'll see if I have his phone Number and call him if I have.

Got to give my father a ring as well. Did last week when he was in hospital and got a serve for " Carrying on" because I was worried about him. Apparently I'm not supposed to be concerned he's in Hospital and asking why he didn't let me know had the reply of " He didn't have to let me know every time he walked out the door did he?"  Just got back from 10 Days of looking after him, have to go back next month when he has another little Op and looks like I might have to go back next week if hes calmed down enough.
Maybe I should go even more if he hasn't. I think something is really getting to him and maybe he needs someone to unload on and have a tantrum at.

Seems to do me good from time to time.  :embarassed:

I know I'm a grumpy bastard but I'll really try hard not to be as big a pain in the arse to my Daughter when I get older.

Well Glort,

I'm surprised to hear you're a confessed grumpy bastard.  Only 11 more steps to go.  I have only one name on my birth certificate and I have bad moments / days but I'll not be confessing to anything more here.

Step One of the soapbox.  When someone hires people to pretend they are medical doctors to encourage you use their product or service it's called conspiracy.  When the end result is or often is death it's called murder.  When thousands of people suffer this same end it's call mass murder.

When someone hires people to pretend or are just plain science quacks to debunk good solid science based on thousands, yes, thousands of absolutely valid studies to discourage you from using good judgement it's called ......

Many people are surprised to learn that some years more people die from legitimate pharma drugs than those supplied by the illegal cartels in the state of Washington, USA.

But wait;  Bob is our mission.  If you want to start a new thread I'll contribute. Perhaps there is a more appropriate server?

Nah, stick it all on here, Casey!

I know this site started with Listeroids and CS's, but all the diversions keep it interesting. There are other sites, whos moderators call for a new topic every time the form or pitch of a bolt changes - or heaven forbid, mention of a left hand thread occurs, God bless em. (Thanks for the forbearance, Ade)

Here you can ask about your 'E' mates health, rant about Fedex and ignore all the stuff you don't like.

Personally I like to know what Ed Dee has been building, am vaguely interested in Glort's dad's scrapyard and will happily read posts on genny trouble shooting and building circuits with Mosfets - for years I thought that was a suburb of Khartoum , even though I'm still electrically challenged.

The posts I don't like I don't read.

We're all a little odd, a little to opinionated some times, some of us more than others, I very much doubt many of us will ever meet in the real world, thank Christ!

Cheers
Stef

Hi Guys, please don`t panic. Had the operation, a few minor complications but all sorted out now. Still no idea if the surgery will have helped with the nerve damage so I`ll just have to wait and see.

I won`t be posting much anytime soon as I can`t do much and typing is very slow one handed.
