It’s been a busy weekend! I’ve been to the hospital to see our friend that had heart surgery … oh … maybe five times!
She’s doing well but she’s groggy and in pain and of course she’s said that if she knew she was going to be in this much pain she wouldn’t have had the surgery. I told her once she starts to feel better she’ll notice that her pre-surgery symptoms like shortness of breath will probably be gone and as she slowly starts doing things that she hasn’t really been able to do for the last couple of years she’ll be happy she had the surgery. She wasn’t buying it this evening, but I’ll bet she’ll come around!
I’m still sick of course. What else is new, eh? I’m pretty sure that I’ve had a partial bowel obstruction going on since Friday or maybe even Thursday. If I don’t start to feel a bit better by tomorrow I might be going to the hospital for myself.
We also found out that another friend of ours, the best friend of our friends that have been in the hospital, is dying of Pancreatic cancer. He just took a turn for the worse today, so we might have some very bad news later in the week.
I know that some of you were probably expecting to see a Green Thumb Sunday post today. Between all the visits to the hospital to see our friend and my own illness I’m just not up to sorting through my garden pictures to post something for GTS today. Sorry.
Instead I’m lying on the couch watching 24:Redemption (we taped it on the PVR while we were visiting our friend in the hospital this evening). Geez it’s been a long time since 24 has been on TV hasn’t it? When was the last time a regular season episode aired … April 2007 or something like that I think! I can barely remember where 24 left off! I hope that between this movie and the start of the series again in January or February that they do some kind of recap show. I normally hate those shows (especially during the season when a show has been airing regularly (hint hint Desperate Housewives and Lost), but in this case I think it might be necessary.
Are you watching 24:Redemption this evening or did you watch the music awards or maybe even the Grey Cup (Canadian Football final game – like the Superbowl but not as well known)?
