Friend Sally and I went to visit Friend Sue in the hospital last night. She had her hip replaced on Monday morning. She looked far better than I expected her to. When we got there, her pain was a 4. When we left, it had climbed to a 6. It was definitely time for more pain medication. She goes home today if the numbness wears off in her upper thighs. They gave her a spinal block before surgery and for some reason she is still being affected. She said she cannot feel her legs when she walks.
But she has been walking with assistance. That is truly amazing. Things have certainly changed. Her incision was actually quite small. No outside stitches either. They glued her shut so there will be minimal scarring. Good for her! She has been in so much pain for so long. The pain she is experiencing now is nothing compared to how she felt a week ago.
I have been bugging Dangerspouse about writing on this diary site for years. He always tossed out the same excuses about why he had to stay on Diaryland. Most of us met up on Diaryland. It was a great place and we all had an amazing amount of fun writing there, but it had the technological capacity of a moose turd. But he is still hanging on. He must have lost several sets of fingernails by now.
So I just did it for him. I opened a gmail account for him and I set up a journal here on WordPress. I did not customize anything. It’s just there. Now he cannot whine about not knowing how to set it up. We have a mutual friend who will help me customize the site. Then he will be good to go. This man is one of the funniest writers I know. He definitely gives Jenny Lawson a run for her money.
The Bloggess. Hilarious stuff – even when she writes about mental illness.
Today is the massive day for show change. Lots to do. A bunch of cars leaving. More bunches of cars coming in. I am ready for The British Invasion!
