The Other Side

I told a friend about my upcoming surgery.

At the end of the call he said 'if we don't catch up before your operation then I'll see you on the other side.'

Made me laugh...

My surgery date has moved to February 6th.  More waiting.

Steve.

    The wait

    The wait is awful.  Sorry about the delay.

    Lol, that would have made me laugh too. You definitely need a sense of humor!

    The wait is the worst part.

    The wait is the worst part. Sorry the wait was extended....but I always believe that these things happen for a reason. February 6th will be here before you know it! Hang in there! You are doing great!

    Hugs

    As opposed to seeing you on the Far Side?

    Sorry. Couldn't resist a Gary Larson joke!

    The Wait

    Hi Jojo,

    I'm happy that you're ok after your thyoid surgery.

    My surgery on the 31st (today) was off then on then off then definitely on.  When I was told it was definitely on I got a very nervous feeling in my stomach.  I thought I was aware enough of my feelings to not be surprised by them.  And then it was definitely off and changed to the 6th.

    I read about your sobfest in your other post.  That has only happened to me once in my life, about 25 years ago.  I actually really enjoyed it.  I got a tremendous feeling of release.  I hope yours was a good one.

    Steve.

    If the medical team is wearing farmyard costumes, I'm going straight home again.

    Think of it as Christmas

    You'll enjoy it more after the wait.

    Seriously, the delay must be a bugger, but I'm sure that geezer in the photo with the hat will look after you. He looks the type :-)

    Time out for the Superbowl.

    Steve,

     

    Watch and enjoy the Superbowl before the real stuff starts. Hopefully a non-eventful surgery. I would say painless as well, but I would be laughed off this forum.

    What is this fute boll?

    I've never watched a superbowl...  I don't much like the local varieties of football either.

    But I would certainly love to see that painless surgery!!!

    I live in Rosewood, Queensland, Australia.

    Football's great, but MotoGP is better!

    I'll join you in waiting for the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix at Phillip Island: 20-22 Oct 2017. Wish I could be there.

    Fute boll

    Its what they dont play at the Superbowl. You need to go to London, Munich or Rio to see the real thing. I have some friends from Sydney who are fond of Aussie rules: something to do with the tightness of the clothes I believe.

    Manual Compositing

    Queen Victoria went to Scotland to open the Forth Railway Bridge it was, of course, National news of course, it was reported in the Times of London, that "Having cut the ribbon, Her Majesty passed over the bridge"

    The copy was sent to London and the compositor created the front page. With practiced fingers he arranged the letters: "Having cut the ribbon, Her Majesty p . . ." The soon to be unemployed artisan reached for a vowel . . . and picked up an 'i'.

    It was not noticed until after the paper went to press.

    At least it's not going to be...

    Steve, at least it's not going to be Halloween week.  I always seem to encounter clerks and technicians in costume then. I think I've been waited on by dozens of bumble bees over the years. There've been a fair number of super heroes, a few princesses, but mostly bumble bees. A bumbling bee surgeon or OR tech could be scary.

    Aussie rules would be my choice.

    It is a fast game.  The action is constant and moves all over the field.

    Not my urologist

    When I made the comment about farmyard costumes I forgot that my photo has a horse in it.  That is not my urologist.

    I don't mind if the nurses dress up, but I think I prefer more serious minded surgeons.

    And it hurts when you laugh, right?

    Steve.
