Update on Ty

After being 2 1/2 hrs late, the nurses finally wheeled him into surgery. The Dr was just running late...what's new right? LOL
 
Anyway, he came through with flying colors. Doc says he had a lot of "sludge" in his Gallbladder and even took photos for us...oh yay?
He  was really awake in recovery. I remember my daughter was so sleepy and slept for quite awhile after hers.
He was talking and joking. A few minutes later he was propped up and eating crackers and drinking apple juice. Another 45 mins and he was walking out the door to the van!
I was worried about getting to the pharmacy to get his new prescriptions filled before they closed...we live in a little town and the streets roll up a little early here.
Luckily M and C showed up at the hospital so they visited a bit then headed back to get T's meds.
 
We all met back home about the same time.
Got in our comfys and had nice hot soup for dinner.
 
As usual is was freezing in the hospital and of all days to pick for rain, thanks Mother Nature!
 
He has pain meds so is at least comfortable, laying on the couch watching TV.
 
Glad that is behind us, onto the next hurrdle life throws at us.

Surgery Day

Good Morning!

Yep, here I am up again at o'dark thirty...don't want this to become a habit especially when I am finaly getting a good nights sleep!
T has his Gallbladder surgery today, and you know how early they want you there...oy!

Anyway, I wanted to leave you a beautiful post video to enjoy while I'm gone.
These birds are truly specatacular!

Let me just say, if the human men would act like this life would be a breeze! ;)

Please enjoy these gorgeous birds ♥

Please Not Again

I can't go through this again.
 
No, it's not what you think. Not the stuff I'm still going thru now.
 
The Raccoons are back.
 
B&T came to spend the night so I gave them my bed to sleep in. I slept on the couch. I had nightmares all night. The dogs had been barking like crazy. I kept shushing them thinking it was just stray cats in the backyard, like usual. This went on for a few hours....I would normally have gotten up quicker, but by having the nightmares I was terrified to "see who" was there.
 
I flipped on the light and flew open the door. Cyndar was like a runaway train, determined to get what was there...she knew what it was. Katie started nipping at Cyndar's side as they flew around the corner of the house. I heard a scuffle and figured they got into it, which still may have been what happened.
Or did they get the end of  Raccoon? Was Katie trying to stop Cyndar? Why was she nipping at her?
 
I didn't have my glasses on but noticed wet spots going across the deck. I went out to look and saw fresh wet Raccoon prints!!!
I was beside myself, pictures of Cyndar after the fight flew thru my mind. Once I realized what was going on I called for the dogs only to find them eating out of an over turned dog food container. I thought they must have knocked it over turning the corner. I got them in the house and replaced the the lid/feeding bowls on top of the food storage container.
 
I was so scared I was shaking. If anything were to happen to Cyndar or Katie there's no way I could afford any vet bill at this time.
I am so upset. The Coons have been gone since The Great Fight of 2009". Why come back now? This is about a month earlier than last time.
 
All these things are flashing through my mind as I get a cup of coffee ~ I will be on watch the rest of the night ~
 
With the warm nights we've been leaving the back door open in case the dogs or cats needed out,
what id it had come in the house,
why haven't I seen any evidence of them being there,
the dogs CANNOT go outside at night alone,
the cats either for that matter,
how can I get rid of them this time,
I know animal control is no help,
OMG! what if it had come in the house and headed for Tilly!
Sometimes she stays out on top of her cage at night,
that would have been just awful....
 
All these thoughts are running nonstop.
I sit down at the computer and realize I didn't warm my coffee up. So at 4am I'm at the computer drinking cold coffee, when the dogs start acting up again.
I look outside and there is the bandit into the dog food AGAIN!
It had just been scared off by dogs less than 30 minutes ago and it was already back! I started hitting the sliding door and yelling. I don't stop until it finally leaves, by that time I'm crying.
 
I can't  have the dogs hurt or killed by this marauder.
I have woken up C. He comes out and goes to check the backyard. T wakes up, as does B. None of us can believe they are back after all this time. Trying to figure out how to deter them...since we have tried everything before and had nothing work except a fight with Cyndar.
 
The dogs start barking again!!!!
Back in about 15 minutes this time!
Bold, brass balls on those devils.
We've decided to use wasp spray. It shoots 20 feet so we can do it from inside the house. It high tails it away. Did we hit it, probably not, scare it, hopefully. 
 
I know the police department recommends Wasp Spray over Pepper Spray due to the fact that you don't have to be close to the assailant. Praying it works on Raccoons as well as it does on humans.
 
The can has been by the front door for protection, it will now be moved to the back sliding door for a different kind of protection. I will replace the one for the front door ASAP.
 
3 visits in one night within 1 hour.
I'm sad and scared for my dogs and cats.
 
It's now 6am and I am sitting here drinking my cold coffee ~
 on watch.

I L♥ve My Job

 
Received this in my email from my Mother-in-law
and just had to share...
 
If you don't laugh out loud after you read this you are in a coma! 
This is even funnier when you realize it's real!
Next time you have a bad day at work think of this guy.

Bob is a commercial saturation diver for Global Divers in Louisiana
He performs underwater repairs on offshore drilling rigs.
Below is an E-mail he sent to his sister. She then sent it to radio station 103 .5 on FM dial in
Indiana, who was sponsoring a worst job experience contest.

Needless to say, she won. 

Read his letter below...
 
~Hi Sue,

Just another note from your bottom-dwelling brother.
Last week I had a bad day at the office.
I know you've been feeling down lately at work, so I thought I would share my dilemma with you to make you realize it's not so bad after all.
Before I can tell you what happened to me, I first must bore you with a few technicalities of my job. As you know, my office lies at the bottom of the sea. I wear a suit to the office. It's a wet suit. This time of year the water is quite cool.
So what we do to keep warm is this: We have a diesel powered industrial water heater. This $20,000 piece of equipment sucks the water out of the sea. It heats it to a delightful temperature.
It then pumps it down to the diver through a garden hose, which is taped to the air hose.

Now this sounds like a darn good plan, and I've used it several times with no complaints.
What I do, when I get to the bottom and start working, is take the hose and stuff it down the back of my wet suit.
This floods my whole suit with warm water

It's like working in a Jacuzzi.
Everything was going well until all of a sudden, my butt started to itch. So, of course, I scratched it.
This only made things worse. Within a few seconds my ass started to burn.
I pulled the hose out from my back, but the damage was done. In agony I realized what had happened.
The hot water machine had sucked up a jellyfish and pumped it into my suit. Now, since I don't have any hair on my back, the jellyfish couldn't stick to it, however, the crack of my ass was not as fortunate.
When I scratched what I thought was an itch, I was actually grinding the jellyfish into the crack of my ass.  

I informed the dive supervisor of my dilemma over the communicator.

His instructions were unclear due to the fact that he, along with five other divers, were all laughing hysterically.
Needless to say, I aborted the dive.

I was instructed to make three agonizing in-water decompression stops totalling thirty-five minutes before I could reach the surface to begin my chamber dry decompression.
When I arrived at the surface, I was wearing nothing but my brass helmet.
As I climbed out of the water, the medic, with tears of laughter running down his face, handed me a tube of cream and told me to rub it on my butt as soon as I got in the chamber. The cream put the fire out, but I couldn't shit for two days because my ass was swollen shut.
So, next time you're having a bad day at work, think about how much worse it would be if you had a jellyfish shoved up your ass. Now repeat to yourself, 'I love my job, I love my job, I love my job.'
Whenever you have a bad day, ask yourself, is this a jellyfish bad day?

May you NEVER have a jellyfish bad day! !!!!
 
Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
~
