What does Kitty have to say?


 


Post-op thoughts

Hey everybody! I'm still out on medical leave following my August 18th spine surgery at UW-Hospital. I've been ordered to take it easy--no bending, lifting, or twisting.  (I didn't ask but I think twist-off caps on beer are off limits too). It's been a week since I got out of the hospital, so I've had some time to  contemplate my experience. And I learned a few things! *Every one at UW Hospital was extremely nice. From the nurses, the nursing assistants, docs, residents, food service, and maintenance people, everybody was quite pleasant. But then again, I was on narcotics. *Having small veins may look sexy, but can be problematic when it comes to I-V's. I've been scouring the internet for a vein exercises tape, to no avail. Apparently, Suzanne Somers' "Vein Masters" is long out of print. *You don't have to tip for hospital room service. And the food is actually very good. I recommend the grilled salmon. *I keep finding new surgical tape residue every day. And I'm convinced it will be on the planet longer than I will. *While I was there, I did not hear Brett Favre's name mentioned once! I'd like to thank every one who's been helping me out during this "rough patch," including my boyfriend Mike who's been doing a lot of lifting, bending, and twisting for me (and washed my hair!), all the friends who stopped by,gave me rides, brought food, gave me a call, said prayers or sent me good vibes. And I'd also like to thank George Clooney for giving me that sponge bath. That was awesome.

World's Worst iPod: Hall & Oates "Method of Modern Love"
Hall & Oates had a lot of great hits in the 1970s and 1980s, and if you believe a lot of folks, this is NOT one of them! This song with its amazing spelling lesson hook made it all the way to #5 on the charts in February of 1985. We're a little...

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...
