101!

I stopped by to see Barry at the hospital today. Brought him some milk thistle tea bags, which apparently his doc said "won't hurt him."

He was chipper and in good spirits; if tired and weak. Says he has trouble sleeping and of course is bored out of his skull. He played a bit of Dan's new CD (nice stuff Dan!) and I am sure this is helping alleviate his boredom.

Barry said he lost a lot of weight rapidly ("Now if only I can keep it off!" he says; sheesh what a maroon! Actually most of us would think the same thing, I bet...) but that his condition is now stable. He is numero uno on the liver list so if a compatible one shows up it is his.

Never fear, Mudcat, Barry can still sing!!! He joined me in singing General Taylor, Red is the Rose, and Highland Lament. So there.

He tells me he shall take up gourmet cooking when his new liver is up and running.

I have a whole collection of those old Time-Life "Cooking of the World" books (great photos and recipes, and history of the countries and their food customs), so I guess I know what I will be giving him for a prezzie next time I stop by...

Two doctors stoped by for a brief conversation and to test Barry's alertness they asked him who the president was, then the previous one, then the one before that, etc. By the time they got back to Reagan, Barry said "some other asshole!" Yay, Barry! They also had him subtracting numbers and asking him for answers rather rapidly I thought. He did well (came up with answers faster than I did).

His wife thinks he is a bit low-key these last few days, and indeed Barry seemed rather tired to me. (Then again I am used to seeing him in a roomful of people excited to be sharing songs together).

But compared to how he was doing a few days ago all is going VERY well! So everyone, keep thinking good healthy thoughts about our Mudcat pal! Maybe have some (calves') liver and onions in his honor!

Get that liver and get well, Barry. We miss you.

Hi all & thanks for all the espically kind words & wishes & the offers of lamb livers & liver shivers but sadly only a full plate of the real human kind will do. I'm still in a holding patten waiting for the real deal to come in & I'm still at the top of the food chain so things are still looking very good.

Sandy & Dan, thanks so much for Dan's new CD, I got it last night & have been listening to it non stop ever since. I'll give my 2 cents worth in the thread covering this.

Thanks again to all who've posted, my sis will be back for her loan of this laptop later on in the day so I'll post back when I can with any news. Barry

Take the old one out, put the new one in
And it's time for Barry's liver

Maybe this one:
I dreamed a dream the other night
Bedpans, bedpans away my John
I saw a nurse, all dressed all in white
Bedpans, away.

She came to me at my bedside
Dressed all in white like some fair bride.

And in one hand, a shining bowl
And in the other, a Charmin roll

She made no sign, no word she said
I knew that I must dump in bed.

She took the pan, she said goodnight
And carried off the pan of...

And then awoke to hear the cry,
"No more onions for the Barry boy"

Well kat, Skiff and I wish you'd mentioned this earlier as our Spare Parts Repository is a bit low at the moment. We do however have a fine assortment of artificial parts that require no anti-rejection meds by the user, although in some cases the meds may be needed by those around the recipient.

For instance, we have 27 Nancy Reagan Vacuous Smiles which are always in demand by those who have spent time in the James Taylor Rehab Wing for the Chronically Bland at the NYCFTTS. Modeled after James himself, we have 48 Pre-Conditioned Electronic Voice Boxes programmed to make everything you sing sound like "Fire and Rain." Of course there are always a large supply of the special model (built for Neil himself) of the Neil Young "Fart of Gold" Rubber Assholes.

I'll check on the other parts we have from Mudcat donations by members and get back to you. Barry can pick and choose as he wishes.

That's just the kind of guy Barry is. I wish him well and hope that the transplant is successful.

As soon as I get a Y-splitter from radio Shack, the patient can listen through their ears too. Barry can be our test subject. I had been saving it for Spaw's upcoming procedure; it looks a little like a celery stalk.

Barry, what a clearshining mirror of love and concern there is here. Sometimes the best way to get to know someone is through the kind words said by those who love us. Your situation will be put before the prayer partners in the prayer chain later this afternoon, and they will have a link to this thread too, to get updates and express their concern and caring personally.

One of the people in the chain who has long been praying for others (Lauri, my best girl pal), is on the prayer list herself now as she is completing some tests for her own liver. I know she will pray for you especially sensitively and I would just ask that you keep her in your thoughts as well. She seems to attract much the same kind of feeling you do.

Rest well. Remember this is hard work your body is and will be doing-- please be sure to make lots and lots of room to recover.

~Susan
