Joe got through the leg vein bypass on Friday afternoon, but is still in ICU because his blood pressure cannot be stabilized. If he takes the pain meds (LOTS OF DISCOMFORT SO YOU KNOW WHAT HE IS THINKING) he needs a medication that constricts his blood vessels which is detrimental to his leg blood flow.
As soon as he gets a phone again, I will give you the new number!
You are all such a blessing!

He was moved to room 2519 and his new phone is 732-321-7148.
Oh, Crochety says "Go Jets!"...EX Mrs. C says, "Go Saints!"...

Against my better judgement I read the last entry and just reminded myself why I do no longer read the old fuddy dud's posts (because he will never grow up).
However, I felt I should let everyone know that he is in JFK in Edison, yes again, room 2543. His phone is 732-321-7121.
He should be having the vein bypass surgery tomorrow on his leg and hopefully this will increase circulation so his foot wounds will heal.
Thank you for your good thoughts and prayers.

But you can tell everyone else because it is amazing.
A really pretty nurse has been flirting with me.
This old crip has been flirted with by a really hot nurse who is in her early 20's. And she has seen my naughty bits. (They must be even cuter than I thought.)
I should go back and find my first serious girlfriend, who dumped me, and let her see me today, with my Svengali-ish charms. HOOHAAAAAA.
I was going to end this post with a pcture of myself, but then I would have to deal with scores of women getting all flirtatious. That is just too much darn work.

But it's really meaningless to most of us.
But not to my aide, Nerlande (Nelly,) who is from Haiti. She has been walking around for the last few days hiding tears. I asked her if her family has been in touch with her, and are ok.
She has lost some members.
"Eight, so far."
Now it became very personal.
I know I'll remember hearing that for a long time.
The kind, gentle woman who has helped care for me for months has suffered a tremendous loss. Nameless, faceless victims aren't dead, but relatives of a friend. And since the initial reports, she has lost even more family and friends. The toll rises.Sure I gave her a condolence card, and a few bucks to help out. But it is so little. I am asking everyone, if you have been thinking of sending some money to a reputable organization to help out, please do. If you haven't, please reconsider.
Here on the East Coast we have a huge Haitan community. Many of our friends and neighbors have lost family. Help for their sake.

Sounds like a lot of pain. I hope youse guys get me through it like the previous operation. This shouldn't be as potentially dangerous as the last time, but things have a way of going badly for me. The lovely and talented Mrs. Crotchety will provide updates. I'll be getting a fresh Brazilian.
As usual, if I die, thanks for reading.

I can see my toes!
For the first time in many, many years I can see my naughty bits!!! And they are cute as can be.
I knew they were there all along, but I was going on blind faith, for there had been no visual confirmation since 1968.

The EMT transporting me today looked exactly like Zena the Warrior Princess.
I thought that was weird.
I wonder if being an impersonator would be a good job? It would certainly be easy enough. I look enough like John Popper to impersonate him, unfortunately no one knows who he is.
I've been making progress. I get in a wheelchair using a sliding board.
Sounds like fun, huh?
Imagine shoving a board up my bum, then shimmying down to the chair.
Oh joy. Splinters on my naughty bits are just one hazard.
Speaking of my naughty bits, a new aide started last night and within minutes, she was introduced to my naughty bits.
