Geeze Louise

I wrote yesterday about 11:11 and then missed it entirely.  I spent the day in the ER with my husband with yet another nose bleed, i.e. blood flood from hell.  By 2:30 he was in surgery (3rd one this year) trying to stop the bleeding.  By 7:30pm he was finally given enough morphine to put him down long enough for me to sit and rest.  My husband is 6'3, 250lbs, and the same personality as General Patton.  He is exhausting to tend to.  I have been with him through many types of surgeries over the past 10 years or so and every single time without fail as he is waking up from anesthesia he says the exact same thing "FIND MY GD PANTS, WE'RE BUSTING OUT OF THIS JOINT."    I think I shared here that one time with two IV poles in tow, broken bones and more stitches than I can remember, he took off out the front door of a hospital with his bare butt shining for the world to see because he wanted " A GD TACO FROM JACK IN THE BOX."

OK.........I'm off to the shower and back up there to listen to his tales of how incompetent the staff is. sigh.

Believe it not, I have seen more than one person do that in the hospital. We just shake our heads..


Your tribulations put my life in perspective. You know what I mean, Pasadena Pammie.

Not to get off topic, but Jack-In-The-Box tacos were my dietary staple when I was drinking. Nothing tasted better after a full night of hitting it hard at the bars. I can't really blame him. And we don't have Jack-In-The-Box in West Virginia :-(

However....I can see how you must be exhausted. Baby steps sister.

I am sorry, Pam. What a bunch of stress. Gen. Patton was a pretty tough fellow. Your husband sounds like a card!

I hope the Texans win tomorrow.

Pam, you are amazing! Don't forget that. :o)

Love to you and General Patton -- I hope they find out what is causing these nosebleeds.

Hope Mr. Pammie is doing better. xoxox

Hi Pam, I read your blog all the time but hardly ever comment. I had a visual of George C. Scott (as your husband, as Patton) walking out of the hospital to get tacos. It was funny, but not really. Keep hanging in there.

@Kristen - WE USED TO USE JACK IN THE BOX TACOS FOR THE SAME PURPOSE! After a night of drinking it was mandatory to have at least three of those tacos before heading home at 2 am.
