Just wrote a long post and lost it. Damn computer. Oh well…suffice to say that Ernie will be celebrating Eileen’s birthday on May 9 by having surgery. The surgeon thinks the hernia may be a result of his prostatectomy incision and there is the chance he’ll end up with a question-mark shaped scar. I kind of liked that part. He won’t be able to lift anything heavy for awhile after the surgery of course—-which will include my mother’s wheelchair. Should be interesting.
I visited my father after work and it was pretty tough. He was in bed and I couldn’t get him to respond at all. He opened his eyes a couple of times but didn’t seem to see me.
I got home and cried and cried. Then I made Ernie play some of my favorite Ian Hunter songs. He protested, saying that they would make me cry. I assured him they wouldn’t and then cried all the way through them. Oh well, at least the boys were outside playing.
Got two cards yesterday—from my friend Gisela and from our dear friends Jim and Diana. Thanks guys….those kind thoughts really do help.
