Thank you all for your prayers n' positivity! Tom's surgery went well, albeit a little longer than expected -- doc says his bones are like 'concrete.'
(To which his former admin wrote, "so's his head!")
Off to physical therapy/boot camp now. Have a great day everyone. Stay warm, stay safe!
You'd think by the time I'd reach this age, I'd know better. I'd curb my enthusiasm.
Oh nooooo. For a few years now,
Game on! Reservations were finalized for the long Thanksgiving weekend, and the anticipation of tasting authentic New Mexico cuisine again had me salivating.
Have to admit, at first I was less than gracious when hubby called. (Control freaks hate having their plans changed, don't-cha-know!)
In lightning-like speed one thing led to another, and the deed's being done tomorrow at 11:30.
While the mechanics seem almost as routine as a tonsillectomy, my only concern is how Tom's oncologist and orthopedic-dude agree to orchestrate his blood thinner.
Seriously, it's like when I used to work for a couple CPA's who'd often feud over the silliest things: "Myra, would you tell Doyle ...."
Followed shortly by, "Myra, tell Cliff ...."
Driving home tonight, Doc #1's assistant calls to ask me to tell Doc #2 tomorrow not to do the filter, but instead resume the shots.
(Seriously? ... I wanted to say, "Tell him yourself!")
I'm pretty sure everything will turn out fine and Tom will be able to return to his beloved game of golf come Spring.
... Still, prayers are certainly appreciated!
... and the good thing? I don't have to worry about eating turkey next Thursday! :)
If anyone has some great tapas recipes, won't you let me know?
Hugs from Phoenix!
