Ooh, hillbilly heroin. Sounds like fun unless it's administered by a hillbilly heroine. I'm so glad you're healing quickly! Take care, my BB! Can't wait to hear that you're home, though I'll bet you'll miss those pretty girls;-)
Drugs, Bandages, Incisions.... The stuff nightmares are made of. I'm grateful you spared us the digital up-close photographs. I have low tolerance for open wounds and things of that sort (most expecially when they're my own, but other people's as well).
So let's get on with the Rehab and the healing.... You need to get home amongst your toys and let Izzy fatten you up a bit after that low-calorie Hospital food. You should be concentrating on composing a few favorite menus.
Looking forward to a visit later on this year when we can both celebrate our renewed warranties....
Woo hoo! Sounds like you are making great healing headway now. More Hillbilly and whee! Thnx for the description of your Spirometer. Sounds like a challenge with the kind of incision and sternum cut you've had. You've got such a great surgeon, glad you're making him happy with your ahead of the curve progress! Yay, that's my bro.
Message to your No. 1 Fan who wrote you such a GREAT set of lyrics to one of all our favorite So. Pacific melodies: Fantastic! Love it.
Yes, Kenny, you MUST sing it to the staff! If you had your UKE there you could play and sing at the same time. You want the chords?
Please let us know if breakfast was yummy. But what could match last night's dinner?
Lots of love, dj/buzzzzz
Kenny, hoping your night is better than last night! Rest IS the best medicine. I am enjoying all the well wishes from your friends and family. . .having this journal is a wonderful idea. Your heart beats with new vigor. . .those dancing shoes are waiting!
Ken—You got an awful night out of the way, bravo! One moment at a time you're putting it behind you n' behind you s'more. Keep the faith (though ya might shake a finger at it now n' then!); I believe in the energy of those prayer circles, not to speak of chili con carne.
Glad you are getting up a little, even if it is
with help. Just think you will be able to do the Charleston and travell route 66 again. Boy, remember those good old days? And that alsome car you had. Just think you will be better than new..Your thought of evey day and in all my prayers.
Love you vey much, Ray
Hi Ken, sorry to hear about your bad night but you must realize by now a hospital is about the worst place to get some rest. There is continual activity and someone is always pushing, prodding, and the noise of those IV machines can seem defining at times. AND for sure be careful that you don't pull your battery cables out, those are the last things removed before going home.
I shared with you a bad night. Pain level was very high ; so I'm on Percocet every 4 hours to keep ahead of the onslaught of pain .
I'm sure every day will get better- that's what I'm told.
Just keep thinking of your favorite Chili Con Carne down the road!😊
You are at the most difficult part of recovery. All the things you mention combine to make this the most hellish time. Prevail, wonderful brother. Sending you a virtual back massage, with my love and continuing prayers.
Wow! I'm impressed that you're already getting up and around and sending messages the day after your operation! How did you recover so fast? You must be a super hero of some kind as Donna put it so well (not sure what kind of superhero she was describing though:) Keep up the messages - it's nice to receive news of how you're doing and "what" you're doing at the hospital (besides flirting with the nurses of course... at least that's what Isabelle is telling us :) Ariel
Computers not one of my skills - thank goodness I have others! So hope you get this message. Wow, you sound as though you are enjoying the love, care and attention - and why not! Still thinking of you even during the most delightful ballet I saw yesterday performed by the Eifman Ballet of Russia - modern/classical mix with fantastic choreography and brilliant dancers. Enjoy being well cared for. K3
Woo hoo! Happy Graduation from ICU to normal room. I expect nothing less than highest marks from my Super Bro. I think we have a new super hero here -- Super Bro, duh duh duh duh duh DUH (blaring trumpets), part man, part pig. (More trumpets)
Sounds like you've got the best of pain meds since it only "smarts a little" to get out of bed. Wow, pretty fantastic you're allowed to get in and out. You ARE SUPER BRO! Love you, Kenny/Wzzzzz, dj/bzzzzz
Pretty extreme way to get some good sleep. . How wonderful. Enjoy getting the deep rest you genuinely need. Glad your funny bone is well oiled, too. You deserve all the TLC and pretty nurses, you do you do, AND the great drugs keeping the pain away. My compliments and thanks to the world class medical team and hospital staff you are so fortunate have. Love you, Kenny. DJ, bzzzzzz
Leave it to my bro to wake up quoting Arnie as the Terminator with, "I'm back," and flirting with the nurses. Way to go Kenny!
Thank you Isa for doing your Papa's Journal for him and keeping us all posted.
I just finished talking on the phone to a good friend, a Franciscan Monk, and who is part of Ken's prayer chain, who remembers Kenny from Santa Fe visits and sends his best, too. Lots of love and continuing prayers, donna, bzzzz
