Subject: Kendall - update June 11 09
From: jacqui.c
Date: 11 Jun 09 - 07:20 PM

We're back at the hotel now after eating at the local Chinese Buffet (Kendall's choice!)

He was in surgery for about three hours. When his surgeon looked at the vocal cord he found that the cancer was bigger than was the case last time and had gone deeper than we had hoped. He has had to cut away a fair chunk of the left vocal cord, the photos he showed me looked pretty bad. He wants to see Kendall in 2 - 3 weeks for a check up and then will wait a few months for things to settle down before looking at what can be done from the point of view of reconstruction.

So here we are, at the bottom of another steep hill that we know we have to climb. Kendall is, of course, very disappointed at this turn and will have to take some time to get his head round this latest hit, as will I. However, we will deal with it and, basically, what will be will be.

He has recovered amazingly fast from the procedure. Within about an hour of coming round from the anasthetic he was munching on an egg salad sandwhich that I smuggled into the room. He totally charmed Marriane, his nurse, and I think she would have liked to have kept him there tonight. He, however, wanted out and back to the hotel where he could have peace and quiet, and control of the TV remote.

WE shall be heading home tomorrow and I am sure that he will be on line when we get home. Right now I'm sitting here with a styrofoam cup of Chardonnay, relaxing after the stress of a long day.

Get well soon :-)

Thank you for the update, Jacqui. Sorry that the news is not quite as good as we had all hoped. I wish I were there to give you a hug and supply you with some California chard...

Love,
Claire

Bobert - when we get home he has an unopened bottle of Glenmorangie to broach.

Many thanks for the good wishes to all - I'm off to the room now to collapse.

Jacqui and Kendall- Thank you for taking time to let us know how things are progressing. Hills are for climbing, and friends who walk along near and far help sweeten the journey. Remember you are both cherished by many.

Hi Kendall and Jacqui,

I can't add to whats been said but throw me an oar and I'll pull along with you. And when you have to talk just whisper to me and I'll say the words for you. And when you need to shout, tell me or Spaw or Kat or Jeri or Art Thieme or anyone, and we'll bellow for you.

But just until you can handle job your own self. Musicians are basically a lazy lot and we won't work any longer than we need to.

Thanks to all of you. Your messages mean a lot to us both.

We're home and settling down to decompress and take stock.We both need to come to terms with this in our own way. Kendall needs to be allowed into his 'sulking place' and left for a while in peace, and that he shall have.

We had a good drive home (well, I was driving so it was a bit white knuckle for the Cap'n.) It's nice to be back in familiar surroundings, although the rooms in the Albany hotel we use are becoming more and more familiar. It was a good thing we chose to stay there, rather than with friends in the area, as neither of us was feeling at all social last night.

We go back for the post-op in 2 - 3 weeks and, hopefully, can get more info then on how this goes forward.

Kendall was royally pissed off last year at Old Songs. There was a Utah Phillips memorial in which Kendall, Caroline Paton and, I believe, Priscilla Herdman were told they could not take part.

If that wasn't enough I was very badly bitten by mosquitoes - got about 50 bites and I react badly to them - it was a week before I was able to get any real sleep so, in spite of the fact that I love the festival, I just can't face those damned little pests again.

Hey, Kendall, I'm looking foward to coming up to Maine, and hope to take the scenic routes you mapped out for me.

Although I'll not have a lot of use for hypnotizing lobster down in Asheville NC (to where we're fixin' to retire next year, I hasten to add)I figure if it works on lobsters it ought to work on hillbillies, too.

I'm still rereading your book down there on the mountain house. It makes great outhouse entertainment (no offense) the stories are just the right length. How did you gauge them so perfectly?

Speaking of outhouses, did I ever tell you how my cousin Viola burnt down the outhouse up on the hill above grandPa's house in Honeyville? She was sneaking a lucky strike one Sunday afternoon when grandPa walked up on her whistling Leather Britches, she jumped up threw her cigarette down the hole and the Montgomery Ward (Sears was too expensive) fell down off her lap into the hole. Pa went in as she went out and sat down. After 5 minutes or so the catalog down in the hole caught on fire. Pa escaped with only scorched galluses on his overalls, but the outhouse burned down to reveal 30 years of accumulated, well, nevermind...

Cheer up, or I'll tell another story, you hear?

We discussed this at length last year.

There were many people who wanted to perform and not all of them could. Not everybody got to perform in fundraisers and other concerts elsewhere, and Utah was well known to folks in the Albany area who maybe didn't get any other chances to memorialize him. In retrospect, the necessarily hastily organized memorial could have been handled better, but nothing can be done about it now except bitch.

And I'm sorry that not getting priority over others counts for more than Utah's memory or your friends that will be there or the music. I would have liked to have heard Kendall and everybody who wanted to perform, but being pissed over what happened a year ago just makes you and the people who care about you miserable.

I can understand about the mosquitoes though. That's why I'm staying in a hotel this year. First time ever, since 1981.

All of that said, if Kendall's grudgifying and complaining, I figure he's getting back to 'normal' pretty quickly. Do what the doctor says and don't talk!

Jeri, you do make a lot of sense as usual, but there is more to the story. Utah and I were close friends,I was not just another fan trying to get in on the act, and I was grieving his loss. The whole thing was poorly done, it was half an hour late getting started and then it was moved to another location. They had plenty of time to include Caroline, Priscilla and me. I've been a loyal Old Songs supporter for years and it just all piled up at once.

I may change my mind at some point but I doubt it.

Listen, I apologize. I forgot a fundamental thing I learned when I worked in hospitals: people who are sick (or recovering from recent surgery) don't generally have an operational niceness filter. I however, have no excuse.

Decisions were made that wound up making Kendall feel bad. One of the people who made the decision is a Mudcatter and a friend. Kendall may choose to hold onto his resentment or may eventually let it go--I can't do anything about it. The people he holds responsible are my friends and Kendall is my friend, so I choose to not discuss it any more.

Kendall, get better quick dammit!

Well, funny you should mention that. I just got an e mail from my Doctor, and he said my prognosis is good but he can't be more specific until the pathology report comes back to him.

Of course, I don't know what "Good" means to him. To me it means I will get some sort of voice in time. To him it might just mean it's not going to kill me.

I think I know who that mudcatter was that made the decision at Old Songs. I've talked to him and it's ok.

I've been having a stupid day. Felt like I've been trying to run through molasses, and now that thing about the niceness filter seems kind of ignorant.    I'm going to give up in case it's possible for me to say something even stupider, because I'll surely come up with it.

I may catch up to Jacqui on Don Meixner silver bracelets though. Take care of yourself. I'll probably make the John Roberts house concert.

Hey Kendall.

I have some new designs that none of this crowd has seen yet. Sorry to be missing you and Jacqui this year I missed all the fun last year so I was hoping to see everyone.

I am suprised at all this yammering about Mosquitoes. Don't they have them in some places besides New York State? Of course few are as big as variety we have in central New York. They come out of the wet lands created by the old Erie Canal bed. Anopholese Gigantus Syphona is the only incident of cross species breeding that we know of. The mosquitoes that caused the Yellow Fever that killed so many Irish laborers in Montezuma Swamp during the digging of the canal has since crossed with the Great Blue Herron. The resulting animal is quite large. They fly in packs in the early spring and are often confused with Canada Geese when seen at a distance. There is an unconfirmed report from one of two men who were injured and a third killed while digging a canal feeder stream. The skeeter stabbed through the non critcal parts of the first two men at once only to suck the life and blood dry of the third man in the row. The other two were immediately cured of alcoholism. They claim it is because of the bite itself that the cure was affected. Some say it proves the possibility of accupunture.

Well Jeri. I expect I'll see you any way. You can always stop by the Skipper's, wave your wrist about and gloat.

Don

As I recall, one of the early studies on alcoholism in insects was done in central New York. As Don has said, a primary food source for mosquitos in the Great Montezuma Swamp - during much of the nineteenth century - was Irish canal workers. Alcoholism in the bugs was a predictable result. Unfortunately, that means that anyone who consumes alcohol to dull the discomfort of mosquito bites is simply making her/himself a more attractive target. And that, of course, is most people in central New York.

So what we now have is a mutually-reinforcing, closed-loop cycle of human-insect alcohol dependency. Someone once told me that, that was the inspiration for Utica Club beer, the location of the F.X.Matt brewery and a number of other once-thriving breweries. The hops blight of the early 20th century up here closed many of those breweries.However, it did nothing to stop the dependency, leaving us vulnerable to Coors, Miller Light and other unspeakables.

Our unforeseen weakness has led to our being shamelessly exploited.

Don't pity us. Send decent beer.

Mosquitos in Alaska are formidable in appearance - there are people who carry baseball bats in readiness - but in my experience, they don't mind being killed. Far from being subtle in their attacks they fly straight at you and they are so slow that you can easily bat them out of existence.

no-seeums, on the other hand, are nasty. You can't see them unless they are traveling in packs. Unfortunately they do travel in packs.

I was up in the Minnesota woods once, playing war games with the National Guard, when I saw two skeeters fly off with an M-48A1 tank. The guys inside managed to shoot the lead skeeter with .50 caliber machine gun but the bullets just bounced off. Poor tank crew was never seen again. The tank was found the next day, crumpled up into something about the size of a basketball.

Good stories!

I agree with Ebbie: many of these northwestern mosquitos boldly hover or land where they can be swatted with relative ease. I guess that's good strategy around deer and other large animals lacking hands.

Thailand boasts sneaky mosquitos which know how to get away with biting alert primates. Compared to my sociable neighbourhood mosquito, they:

- are small
- usually fly without singing
- prefer to stay below waist height, well below our eye level
- choose bottom surfaces to perch on (landing upside-down underneath tables, beneath leaves, on the back of your thigh when you're sitting in a chair)
- take to the air (silently) at the slightest movement, and don't hover about. They'll rapidly fly off to shelter if it isn't safe to land again immediately on you.
- wait a few minutes after being disturbed, before attacking again, and
- stay alert for your reaction for a while after landing, before committing themselves to probing for blood.

When attacked by one or a few of our bumbling local mosquitoes, I can often see them coming, hear them around me, and catch them in the air, or as they land and immediately begin to probe. If my first swat is a clean miss, usually the mosquito presses the attack again within a minute, while I am still alert. None of this is true of the highly-evolved Asian "stealth mosquito"!

Wish I had a camper to lend you. May joy and healing come swiftly.

In Maritime Canada and likey in Maine and their neighbouring coastal states, we have two kinds a skeeters that are "bad". One is woods skeeter and the other is the salt water marsh skeeter.

The woods skeeters have a habitat perfectly suited for them in New Brunswick. From the Appalacians to the coast and coastal salt water marshes and deltas is a large area of mixed boreal forest and bog country with a whack of slow moving drainage. Add a huge number of beaver dams and... damn!

In The Merrytimes, the Acadian settlers reclaimed thousands of square miles of salt water marshes along tidal rivers and estuaries with dyke systems. You do the math.

Now, yer woods skeeter is a fair size, tenacious, sneaky, and flies pretty fast. Yer salt water marsh skeeter come in small, medium and large and fly as fast as all three AND the woods skeeter combined.

Round these here parts, "fly dope" is what we call anyone who goes into these areas without a hooded fly jacket.

And... on my old camp (see the members photos) I had a screened in porch. Used to sleep in it in a LazyBoy chair in hot weather. Ya wake up with an awful feeling when the whine of the engines of thousands of skeeters on the screen get THAT loud.

I knew a guy back home in Illinois who lived in the bottomland of the Mississippi. Come summer he'd kill skeeters, general using a 20 gauge but some were to big he had to use a .45-70. He'd eat 'em as he shot 'em, and those he didn't eat he'd smoke or brine or otherwise put up for the winter. He survived mostly on skeeter and catfish.

Rap, a 12 guage with triple O shot is sufficient for all skeeters except the Northern Swampdinger. Those will only attack bull moose and grizzly bears and consider humans too small to bother with. They can be killed at long range with a .270 or 30-06 if you are a crack shot.

Ummm And this has what connection to our friend Kendall?

We were supposed to be heading to Albany, via Vermont, tomorrow but have had to put that back a week as Kendall is not well enough to travel right now.

The first lot of antibiotics that he was prescribed for the pneumonia and diverticulitis just weren't touching it. We went back to the doctor yesterday - we made an appointment for 2.00pm and then the doctor himself phoned and told him to come in at 12.00. Result - blood tests to check his white count and he has had to have two lots of antibiotics to try and do the job. The threat was that if he didn't improve he might have to go into hospital.

The good news is that his appetite is just coming back, he's eaten more so far today than I think he's had for the past three days in total and that has got to be good news. He's off for a chest x-ray this afternoon and another doctor's appointment on Thursday - his doctor is really keeping an eye on him.

It's good the doc and you all are being careful, Jacqui. The pneumonia I had was not treated aggressively enough and here I am just finally free of it, but still fighting back the side effects from steroids, etc. and some anemia which came along with all of it. The past two months have really been something. Please encourage him to be patient with himself. This stuff really saps your energy; it's important to move about a little bit to keep it on the run, but lots of rest is also necessary. Take care, Kendalldarlin'!

Some medications can cause problems with taste.

Metronidazole in particular, which you're quite likely to have been given for pneumonia.

Taste goes back to normal a day or two after you stop the antibiotics.

Right now one of Kendall's main sources of nutrition is mega milk shakes. Full fat milk, three scoops of chocolate ice cream and a banana is the norm. He can swallow these and enjoy them, so he takes in more.

I discussed this with his doctor the other day and he said OK right now - we'll deal with any sugar and fat issues once he's better. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

HMMMMM Kendall, I can see a way to make a profit out of this. We call it The Captain Kendall Diet (or Kaptain Kendall to make it more catchy). Then hire Kirstie Allie to be spokesperson. Don't worry about paying her. The deal will be $50 for every popund lost and still not regained two years later. You don't want to make the same mistake that Jennie Craig made.
Now...this is critical. Jacqui has to develop some new flavors. Bananas, even the smell of bananas, grosses me out. How about Cream Cheese and Chive Or Potato Chip flavor?
The Chocolate Ice Cream and Milk Shake Diet...what do you think?

Go get some whey protein supplement powder in the chocolate flavor. Recommended after bariactric surgery because they don't get enough protein. Kendall isn't either. If all you can get down are shakes and smoothies, then this is the way (whey) to go. You need to maximize the value of what you're drinking. Also used by many chemo and cancer patients to get the nutritional values they need.

Frankly, the best price is at Walmart but its available through health food stores and many grocery and pharmacy stores as well.

An old friend came to visit me today and it should have been obvious to anyone that I didn't care what he did with the shavings of a stump or half a dozen other things that dont amount to a cane hole in a cow flap. This guy is a Leo and of course, it's all about him.
When I didn't respond he suggested that I'm FRAIL!!
I will have to square him away, but I know he will never admit being wrong. I've known him for over 50 years and I've never heard him admit being wrong about anything. He often shoots from the hip with nowhere near enough information to speak about the problem at hand.When it became obvious that I was not interested, he left.

Reminded me of John Wayne in the film Hondo. His advice to a young man, "Never apologize; it's a sign of weakness." To me, it's a sign of insecurity in someone who knows he's full of shit but can't face it.He often gets up my nose, but this time he went to far.

He's the frail one and I have to figure out how to shoot him down without killing him. Any ideas?

Sometime with friends when they don't know what to say, will say things that drive us nuts. The next time tell him something like. Thanks if I wanted to be more upset and depressed I would simply turn on the TV and watch the news ... Friends make us laugh when we are sick, others don't know what to say and then spout out something that is crazy. One of mine came in after I had a pulmonary embolism and told me how I should be dead cause most don't live through them. Wow what a help, and went on and on ... another friend came in and I swear I laughed my way out of the hospital with all of his crazy stories. Needless to say I prefer the laugh cause they don't know what to do or say thinking they are helping.   Just correct him the next time with that wonderful humor you have to set him straight if he is a good friend who only gets on your nerves from time to time. He probably didn't mean to say anything to upset you, just is at a loss for words so he spouts out anything. I have been there captain

Consider adding Maple Syrup to the shakes, or maybe some vanilla.

A nice way of dealing with excess positivism is the old child question: How do you know?, repeated to the point where he runs out of information, false or otherwise. At some point, he either has to admit he does not know or get so ridiculous that he might as well admit to it. It's worth a laugh, anyway. "Why?" also works.

Have to admit, Captain, I have never seen you quite as testy as you have been the past few weeks. I figure it is best to speak only when spoken to...and then with great care.

Your friend is a good man and a good friend. He is a "Maine character" much like yourself but not of the laconic kind. Much like a handyman you and I both know. Some people are afraid of silence. You will manage to make your point and presevre your friendship. Meantime, keep Jacqui close by to preserve the peace...with a frying pan if necessary.

Now don't go out digging a new well or cutting down a 50' tree just to prove to yourself that you are not frail. He may have been referring to your mind...

CELLAR! I'm out of here.

Have some nice soft, bland cookies and a little bit of weak tea and you'll be fine. And take a minute to appreciate all the goodness of Nature that surrounds you and your loving friends.

Sounds like you're describing undiagnosed Asperger syndrome.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asperger_syndrome.

    Asperger syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and people with it therefore show significant difficulties in social interaction, along with stereotypes and other restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other ASDs by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and atypical use of language are frequently reported.[1][2]

    Asperger syndrome (AS) is also called Asperger's syndrome, Asperger (or Asperger's) disorder, or just Asperger's. It is named after the Austrian pediatrician Hans Asperger who, in 1944, described children in his practice who lacked nonverbal communication skills, demonstrated limited empathy with their peers, and were physically clumsy.[3] Fifty years later, AS was standardized as a diagnosis, but questions about many aspects remain.[4] For example, there is lingering doubt about the distinction between AS and high-functioning autism (HFA);[5] partly because of this, the prevalence of AS is not firmly established. The exact cause is unknown, although research supports the likelihood of a genetic basis; brain imaging techniques have not identified a clear common pathology.[1]

    There is no single treatment for Asperger syndrome, and the effectiveness of particular interventions is supported by only limited data.[1] Intervention is aimed at improving symptoms and function. The mainstay of management is behavioral therapy, focusing on specific deficits to address poor communication skills, obsessive or repetitive routines, and physical clumsiness.[6] Most individuals with AS can improve over time, but difficulties with communication, social adjustment and independent living continue into adulthood.[4] Some researchers and people with AS have advocated a shift in attitudes toward the view that AS is a difference, rather than a disability that must be treated or cured.[7]


You'll have to go to the Wikipedia link above to get the footnotes, but this is a fairly succinct description. There many be nothing you can do that will get the response you want.

For the past three days I have lived on ice cream and banana frappes. Loaded with sugar, yet my glucose is always around 110 to 120 in the morning. It drops during the day. My blood pressure is normal and I've stopped losing weight.
Looks to me like all my problems are food based. If I just stop eating they will all go away.

I'm not sure what Type of diabetic you are Kendal but I'm assuming that you are Type 2 and possibly on tablets

Your drop in blood sugar during the day is purely based on exercise. Your body is using more glucose (as energy) than you are taking in as food. Your overnight readings could be normal FOR YOU,

OR

If you are taking tablets - and take them first thing in the morning - their effect could be wearing off overnight. Try taking them at midday and see what happens,

If you are taking tablets there are two kinds ,,,,,,,,

One encourages the pancreas to produce more insulin
The other encourages the body to use the insulin produced more effectively. If not already on both - you may need to change.

I apologise if I am totally off beam with my assumptions but it's taken me 13 years to sort out my own needs as a diabetic so I know it's not easy.

100 is in the normal range... normal range is 70-105, depending on who you ask. The more important number to keep track of is your A1C which should be under 7.0 (again, depending on who you ask).

The morning sits and swings
In her hammock of rose and gold,
Her feet just touch the sea
And the edge of her garments fold;
She wafts a breath to me
Of the blossoms of hope and love
As swinging to and fro
She croons like the brooding dove.

Sing soft, swing low,
Oh, rosy morn!
Clasp to thy breast
The day, new born.

The morning swings far out
O'er the foam of the misty seas,
And lights with rosy glow
The tops of the tallest trees;
The sleeping flowers wake
At the touch of her quick'ning lips,
And drink the dewy showers
That fall from her finger tips.


Sing soft, swing low,
Oh, rosy morn!
Clasp to thy breast
The day, new born.

(puffs up importantly) let me advise you about how to deal with friends giving advice...

..well, i never worked that out. when you're pregnant, suffering sleep exhaustion with a baby, or recovering from an op, "experts" suddenly flock by with instant solutions. (I hope you're not pregnant, captain).

it's impossible to out-expert an expert, but you could always roll over n play dead.. that'd challenge his expertise..

Been away from the cat for a week or so. Just saw this thread. Great news, Cap'n Morse!

OK if I drink to your continued good health? :D

Here's to smooth sailing for you and Jacquie henceforth.
