Happy Halloween from Lilly and Tucker!!
I've spent most of the evening trying to catch up on all my blog reading..it is so nice to be back home. Rick is resting and recovering. I'm doing my best with the nagging to keep him laying low but I have to say its not an easy job. He is doing very well and I have to say he truly is a good patient, as long as I nag. Something of which I am not very good at - but I'm learning.
We geared up for a lot of ghosts and goblins this evening but only had 3. I remember when we used to have 300. I miss the little ones and the cute costumes.
A visit from the 'grands' is always a pick me up

I am very tired from the trip and have not slept well since we left home on the 24th, and I feel like I'm coming down with a nasty cold. Mind you the nasty rain and snow from yesterday doesn't help one feel too chipper.
The furkids were extremely happy to see me yesterday when I went to pick them up from the sitter's. I was very worried about them returning home and jumping all over Rick but it is like they knew something was up with Daddy and they were very gentle with him.
Shouldice Hospital is the place to go for hernia surgery. They definitely know what they are doing, and have all their ducks in a row. They perform 34-35 of these surgeries daily. I did feel they maybe gave Rick too many drugs..he was high for the whole day. The procedure is performed under a local which is probably a good thing. He sure doesn't remember anything. They gave him 2 atavan, 1 oxycotton, gravol and 2 percocets. No wonder he didn't remember anything. This is a man who hardly ever takes even a tylenol. He has been managing the pain level since with tylenol and hasn't taken any since Saturday.
Hey --it worked for "Big Momma"
Betcha they didn't do Big Momma the Olive Baboon with a local
I stayed with my cousin Alice and her husband Russ and I was treated like a queen. It was nice to be able to visit with them. I was chauffeured daily to the hospital to visit Rick- over an hour away. Everyone should have family like mine.
I wrestled the doctor on Wednesday to let Rick out on Thursday-yup I turned on the charm -and it worked. So we had a couple of good days with them before we flew back home on Saturday evening.
Now is recovery time, then we will plan to head south. We have company arriving for christmas so it will be the end of December by the time we haul out of here.
It is nice to finally catch up on all of you-it is amazing how much you miss the blog reading during times like this. Take care all and stay safe. Time to go watch Rick eat all the left over candy.
