Musical Rooms

The hospital is changing my room almost daily.

My pain level has decreased, so I am off the morphine. Good thing. I was hallucinating so much that in addition to the body tremors, I was teaching classes! "Hey, don't forget that hall pass and yes, you can go to your gym class now"...very scary. Mrs. "C" was the non-compliant student.

They found an infection so it is back on the antibiotics. The bandages are off and I will soon be going back to a sub-acute. Can you believe it? I STILL CANNOT GO HOME!

They tried to get me up on my "good" leg. This is the one affected by the stroke. It was just too weak. Oh, that's right, I haven't been on it for at least 6 weeks.

I am sure that I have only survived all this because of your good thoughts and prayers. Thank you for getting me through this nightmare.

Wow, you have certainly been through the wringer. If it's not one thing it's something else. I'm glad you are off the morphine. That's a step in the right direction. At least you can quit working now.

Have a terrific day. My best to you and Mrs. C. :)

Yay, that sounds like progress. To bad you still have to remain hospitalized. But look at it this way. If something comes up (like that infection) you don't have far to go!

Still sending positive thoughts to you, Joe, and Mrs C.

I'd probably be upset at the thought of no more heavy drugs.

I mean I'm all for being in la la land.

Fortunately, I'm already there without the morphine.

Sending more good thoughts and prayers your way Joe!

Well, has she even tried to find a hammer? I checked, and any kind will do.

Well, our thoughts and prayers are still with you smokin' Joe. Hang in there as always. Something has to give sometime. Damn! Un-stinking-real!

Was Mrs. C in a school girl uniform when you said that? Because if so...

Keep the faith DOM...
