Make sure they aren't aspirating their White Castle burgers and let them enjoy!
My Father has no problem eating solid food. I often bring him a bag of Clementine Cuties or a taffy apple (in season). He's fine with any type of food. The other man is right around my age and I believe he's there for some post op rehab and will be heading for home in the future.

Just got back from perusing a gaming forum I used to be on quite regularly and now I have a headache from reading the BS that they write.

Just got back from the doc. I was laying on the table, and he leaned against me to look at my neck, placing his hand on my gut. He made one squeak out. Then he laughed and pressed on my gut, making me sound off like a freight train. He started giggling like a little kid and said, "wow, your like a musical instrument!". Then Sue wanted to join in, climbed up on the table and dropped an elbow in my gut, making even more racket sounding like a tuba. Then him and the doc exchanged high fives...

I'm glad they were amused. I weren't.

He shot me up with lidocaine and cut these lesions off my neck. He's gonna send them off to be tested. they both bled really good, so he burned the sites. Smelled real good. Made my stomach growl. Does that make me a borderline cannibal, enjoying the smell of my own burning flesh? Oh well...

Lidocaine is wearing off, but he made good, clean cuts with a razor, so it doesn't really hurt. Feels like a slight bruise. He said the burning should help a little too. The bandages sticking to my beard are a bigger nuisance. Can't turn my head without it pulling. He told me to just leave them on for a few hours, then when I take a shower to put some neosporin on them.

I bet that's fun to change... A lot of the time those boots on both ends of the axle will tear, if you catch it soon enough you can replace the boot not the whole axle...

At least we don't have shared rooms, so if I get to the point where I want to hurt someone I'll just lock myself in my room or go for a drive.

So Trip are you saying you're a one man brass band?

Sounds like a combo of brass and percussion...

I've been okay now for a few days, as long as I take it easy and don't get overwork myself. All the blood work came back good, but my pressure and triglycerides are high.

The biggest problem never was the GI, it was the random fever spells, aches, migraines and lethargy that were bothering me the most. I believe these can all be attributed to high blood pressure, so that's how I'm gonna treat it. I'm just taking it easy for now, and staying away from the fast food. Gonna have to start exercising again. Glad I got a hand me down bike, it's more interesting that walking and running beats up my knees too bad.

I wouldn't mind having one of those just to have it. I could say with some currenty that I would never use it. But it would still be cool.
