Call Me "Stumpy"

Yeah, this Saturday morning they whacked my left foot off just above the ankle. I always look for the weird angle in every situation and what could be more weird than coming out of a major surgery with all the surgeons, nurses and staff singing to the radio playing "Raspberry Beret?"

For the next few weeks I will be selling my stylin' left shoes on Ebay...

The one thing I know for sure: From now on, for Halloween, I will be a peg-leg pirate! Anyone know where I can get a parrot cheap?

Thanks for the prayers and good thoughts all this time...I am truly blessed.

That's pretty serious stuff, Joe. Sending positive vibes to you and Mrs C. Be well.

ReformingGeek said...

YIKES! I'm sorry to hear about your lack of foot. I'm so glad you can laugh.

I can't resist. Did you get to keep the foot?

;-)

My Left Foot: Wasn't that a movie? Are they going to make a movie about yours? ;)

Seriously, though, Joe, I'm pulling and praying for you.

Well that sucks. But at least the foot won't give you any more problems.

Janna said...

Autograph your left shoes before you sell them to your adoring fans.
They're worth more that way.

With any luck, you'll make enough to buy the parrot AND the pirate hat.

Seriously, I'm sorry to hear about this. I hope things will finally, finally get better for you soon.

I am so sorry to hear about this. I tried calling your new room twice yesterday morning, and I suppose you were in surgery at the time. Hey, maybe they will fit you with a bionic foot that will let you be a kicker for the Giants? Better yet--a kicker for my Cowboys! (That is, if you would be any good, of course. If not, I wouldn't mind you kicking for the Giants.)

I am always amazed at Prince's ability to lighten any situation . . .

He is the silver lining to even the darkest of clouds . . .

Da man is a musical genius . . .

Thinking of you, COM, and hoping you can leave all of this behind soon and BE HOME again!

I like the idea of the bionic foot.....hang onto those shoes for awhile longer. :-)

savvy said...

Damn, dude! very sorry to hear of this - our thoughts are with you!

Deb said...

So sorry to hear this, Joe. What a long road.

Something tells me that you'll still be able to kick butt with that right foot though.

Prayers, good thoughts and best wishes sent your way.

Tiggy said...

Sorry to hear that, Crochety, best wishes going your way! A bionic foot would be pretty cool though... ;)

Don said...

Damn Joe! That's bad news, but at least you see a little humor in it. Not sure I could. I hope that things will finally turn around for you. This is enough crap!!!

Quirkyloon said...

Uh oh. Does this mean you're going Hoveround on us?

I can see the videos now: Crochety Gone Wild *vroom, vroom*

Seriously though sending good thoughts and prayers your way.

00dozo said...

Hey, COM. My best wishes for you and the Mrs. I kinda understand about losing things and I'm glad it hasn't effected your sense of humour either. (Ya sure you ain't be a Canuck??)

Take care and be well!

Jaya said...

I hope this latest surgery heals up quickly and well. I also hope you will provide photos of yourself next Halloween, peg leg, parrot, and all.

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

Sorry to hear about this, Joe. You (and your surviving foot) are in my thoughts. And in my Google Reader.

And hello to Mrs. C!

LL said...

Does this mean no more whacking day stories? You know... I kinda looked forward to those...

More well wishes heading your way DOM.

Charmaine said...

Now you can't say, "I have one foot in the grave".

If you did, well, then I guess you'd be in it.

Nobody is stopping you, hell no. You're a trooper/survivor/ass kicker.

You only need one foot, to kick some ass mista.

FishHawk said...

@Charmaine: Come to think of it, he can, actually. That is, unless they have pickled it for him to take home and put up on his mantle. Whoa, talk about a conversation piece! "Hey, Crotchety, is that the foot your wife had them remove from your mouth?"

MA Fat Woman said...

If you were a girl they'd call you Eileen for sure!

Phillipia said...

Wow...so sorry DOM. I hope by th etime you get this (I have been lax in my blog reading) yu are doing much better. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Mrs C.

Claire said...

Why not your bloody right foot! Then you and mum could have shared new shoes :)

Thank fook that you and mum have a great sense of humour.

Go on hopping!

and hoping you are home sometime this century :)

Marie said...

All I can say is, shit, I am so sorry. And sorry I am so late to this.

I lost an eye as a kid and I know we can make jokes all we want but at the end of the day it sucks.

Prayers as always.
