Rise and shine! The days may be getting longer, but you still have to get up and out there to enjoy them.
Homework on the blackboard, apples on my desk.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
Obama: divisive, invidious
His healthcare law: stupid and hideous
He rules like a Nazi
Heroes died in Benghazi
His response was just feckless and piteous
Internet trolls have studied that great Roman philosopher, Gaius Invidius.
You covered a lot of ground there in one limerick. A+++
an overnight sensation on the internet? who knew. A++
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
the list is legend. A++
hmm, I was too quick to grade you, where IS the WFTD?
WHOOP! Why I love my alma mater.
Check the vertical.
If you look down the screen from his first line to his last, you will find it.
The vicious, invidious, insidious, viscous invidious propaganda from Obama’s ABCNNBCBS media will continue .....
OMGosh, how clever. A+++
...after this commercial break. A+++
A+++ the resident leftie teacher on my friend’s FB page commented on that rating of Obama...his comeback was the awful Koch brothers and Sarah who are undermining the American people. RME He got taken to the woodshed and he is a teacher in our schools here in NY. Crazy. Can’t talk to lefties, their minds are made up.
I am off early to my appointment. It is a consultation, they plan to teach me all about knee replacements, THEN if all goes well they will let me have an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon. RME The process is killing me, but it is started.
Good luck Ti!
It’s that magical moment right now: the first snow of spring.
Hope it works out well-
Obama’s diplomatic disasters
Are caused, at least in part
By such invidious statements
That leave no room to start
A conversation with meaning
With Putin, or any foe-
Painted into into a corner
He leaves no place to go
Instead, he pushes Kerry out
To threaten sanctions and fines
And super-secret hand spanking
While he draws more red lines...
Don’t know if you read the Divergent books series, Ti. i know Whyisa did. xsbaby dragged me to the movie first thing this AM, and i enjoyed it, will read the books now.
I can’t believe I did it. I chose the total knee replacement. The makoplasty (partial) is good for 10-12 years, while the full replacement is up to 30...my life expectancy won’t exceed that one. Next appointment is with surgeon and date will be set. One now, one in the fall. OMGosh...what have I started?
I am guessing that I will have LOTS of time to read that series and more recovering from the knee replacement. Did you see my recommendation to read Heaven is Here? Talk about a story, this young woman is amazing. Not many folks live to survive a plane crash with the grace and faith that she did. I ordered two copies in hardcover for friends, I liked it that much.
you really want an answer from me? nice day here, no snow.
Start shopping for a place to rehab. The first week or so you will not be able to get around. My mom had to be in the “nursing home” part of the senior complex she lives in.
O should have diverted MO from China to Russia, she’d fix those ruskies good. LOL
Guy says I am going HOME to stairs and all. RME I am not doing both together, I want to be home not in a nursing home.
My mom just had the one knee replaced.
I am feeling the fear already. The book they gave me says “Joint Camp” like it’s gonna be all fun and play? It’s gonna be PAINFUL. Who are they trying to kid? I sure hope I can manage stairs, they don’t let you go home till you can do them and I don’t want to stay any longer than necessary.
Well, there you go. The hardest part is the rehab. Psych yourself up for it. It will be better than the chronic pain you have been having for years.
Is there a way for you to stay downstairs for a while at home? My friend had both done at once and she did really well with it. She is 2 years older than me and had it done right before Christmas. My MIL did one at a time.
I just hope I can go through with the second one after undergoing the first. RME Wonder if it will be like having a baby, the result is so good, you foolishly do it again and again.
Ti, i had both of my hips replaced in my late 40s, you are young and fit and in good health, your recovery will be fine. it is scary, but i bet you bounce right back.
I live in a mid century modern home, first level is kitchen, dining room and half bath. Living room on it’s own level. Top level is full bath and bedrooms. I will have to do stairs. No way I can manage without it. Only good thing is that they are half flights...only 6-8 stairs going in any direction.
i think it is much more difficult for the elderly than for th middle aged, to rehab. as long as she has a place she can be on a single floor for awhile she will be fine. and i swear with the second hip they had me doing stairs after one week at home.
your mom is elderly and ti is not, that’s the difference. it is much more difficult for them, i am not surprised they want Ti to go right home to stairs. I was in the hospital with 80 year olds when i had my hips done, believe me, it is very different as far as recovery time.
I believe right now I can push through the pain, I have lived with increasing pain for years. Now for my letter to the squad....I am taking a LOA until I recover. I am taking it now, so that I can prepare my house and get ahead on things before I am laid up. I need a railing on the steps from living room to kitchen. I need a cane or walker...rme. I have lots to get ready. Including buying sweat pants and clothing suitable for recovery. The book gives you the full info on planning ahead. I am overwhelmed right now, but will get busy.
I am informing the CA kids that they will not be coming home this year, but I will visit them when I am dancing again.
they will have both PT and OT people come to help you get ready to go home. You won’t be in the hospital all that long. And i don’t know about insurance now with Obamacare, but i had PT coming to the house after the first hip, for the first few weeks, and then was switched to the outpatient PT. with the second hip, the home PT was very very short, maybe one visit, bc i was getting around so much better.
Yes, but you are not an ordinary person. Come on, that was impressive, even for a stoic like you.
True, she was 74 when she had it done.
maybe insurance will cover the walker and the cane? ours did, and they sent me home with that stuff from the hospital, as well as a potty chair thing to put over the toilet. don’t go off half cocked buying this stuff on your own until you check with insurance.
and the pain of working/rehabbing the repaired limbs is a different pain then the debilitating pain of the bad ones, it IS easier to push through it bc you know you are going to be better and pain free on the other side.
well the second one was much easier than the first, and i don’t think i was unusual. i know ti can do this!
I had the cutest surgical assistant counsel me today. I asked him if it was HIS mother, what would he recommend and he said go with the total. He said if I was older and had health issues, the recovery time is only 6 weeks for the partial and would be a better fit for me. He is confident I can do stairs within 24 hours and be home. I sat there slack jawed, but hopeful. He thinks my age and physical health will let me manage. They do NOT like to do double knee replacements, as the lack of mobility is not conducive to full recoveries. Whatever the hell that means. Bottom line was better results doing them separately.
