A Wee Celebration Postponed


First I want to thank everyone who commented and sent well-wishes both on the blog and personally for my husband's surgery on Monday and for thinking good thoughts about James. I think that in time things will work out well for James. He is registered on that on-line job finding site Monster and just today there were a couple of very good possibilities. There is also an advisor at college that is helping him with possible ideas and suggestions. He's smart and a good worker-All will work out for the best. He saw a few great opportunities-one with a major company with great benefits and will look into that next week.
On the Roger Front-all is not as smooth as glass. He is due at the surgical center on Mon at 8 am but his surgery is contingent upon a couple of factors that may not be just right. Why the series of so-called smart medical types couldn't figure out these glitches before now-Lord knows. I'm crossing my fingers and toes and so appreciate your good thoughts. It could turn out alright but we just won't be able to get the go-ahead until Mon. Meanwhile, as you can imagine, all worry and no definite answers make Roger an angry guy. We have decided to postpone my birthday on Sunday and James's on Tuesday until July 4th when, God willing, all of this will be just an annoying memory. Frankly, at 59, I could do without a birthday this year and have a do-over next year to avoid the inevitable.
If you're looking for me I'll be the one hiding behind anything I can find sort of like the cartoon above. Ducking and weaving-staying out of the line of fire. I'm really kidding since Roger is so sedated with Vicodin that he's the one ducking and weaving. Maybe I'll make myself a margarita and hide in the jungle outside. Adios till Tuesday most likely and thanks, again, you guys are great! I'm blessed with friendship.

Sorry it's all hitting the fan at once Dee. It will pass.

I'm job searching as well, finding a job here has been a long ordeal already, NO one does ANYTHING fast here, lol.

I started PT Thursday, think I'm on the right track.

Thinking good thoughts for you and the family over the next week...and yeah, birthday's can surely wait!

Doctors can be SO frustrating! Y'all don't need that added stress of not knowing if the surgery is on or off until practically the last minute. Gggrrr...

Sending lots of good thoughts your way~~~~~~

Sounds like hunkering down is about all you can do. Margaritas and postponement of that blasted birthday sound like excellent ideas. I'm 59 too and seriously thinking of being 59 again next year.

This too shall pass, as they say. I think hiding out in the jungle with a margarita is the answer. Have a nice day tomorrow, it is your birthday after all!!

I have a husband who never has any medical problems — I am the problemo around here!

Seems like it has been a hard spring for a lot of us, but the kind of hard that you get through and then appreciate what you have with renewed gratitude. And somehow the margaritas seem to be an essential part of it all. Thinking good thoughts for your husband and son and you--it is just as hard being the supportive wife/mom as the folks going through the trials. Ask me how I know . . .

My fave B.Kliban quote would work here..."Love to eat them mousies, mousies what I love to eat. Bite they little heads off, nibble on they teeny feet."

Dee dear, doesn't it seem like life comes at you in spades sometimes! This too must pass. I'm sending positive thoughts and "prayers" your way, my friend. Blessings to you and hangeth in there.

Hi Dee, boy, oh, boy...when it rains, it pours, doesn't it?? On all the 'fronts'. I'm holding you family in my prayers for a good outcome. It's such a lot for one person to handle.
I've tried adding you to my links but Blogger isn't having it. Not sure if it's my spelling or what. I'll be trying again..*VBS* Sending big hugs, Finn
P.S. LOVE the cartoon
