Subject: Not Home Quite Yet - CATSPAW
From: katlaughing
Date: 24 Jun 01 - 01:52 PM

The latest from Connie. Despite the food complaints, he'd told me yesterday, he wouldn't mind one more day, so...maybe Monday, we'll see. Anyway, here's what she sent:

Talked to P on the phone. INR not at therapeutic level - translaton, until blood is thinner he can't go home.

Meanwhile, he is totally unhappy about the food, and being on fluid restriciton.

K took M up to see P. After church we will all go to Slate Run Farm, not too far from our home. It is an historical 1880's working farm. It is a beautiful day here, cool low humidity (so far)

K will take T up after that to "eat supper" with P. Quotes added due to the fact that P would take exception to the nomenclature - that any thing that looks like that, tastes like that, or is found elsewhere on the planet in this form would not be referred to as supper. I think it is double bad be OSU is 2 *2* 2 institutions in one! ;) both a hospital and a university. I think the theory on the University side is to make you have more appreciation of your mother and what ever she cooks(ed) for you, at an age where appreciation is difficult to even coerce. My theory on the hospital part is that they get really sick people there and I they use the "complaints about hospital food scale" to determine if the patient is alert and oriented. Maybe Swanno can give some insight as to which axis that belongs to. I'm thinking it must be a component of all four axis. Maybe we need to help P come up with a statement to demonstrate orientaion to person, place, time, and the world around him.

chest tube came out yesterday. Pain diminishing.

Complaints of breakfast include little box of honey-nut cherrios - no milk; 2 oz of Orange juice, a 1.5 inch tal container of yogurt and a plain bagel with one small pay of butter ot put over the whole thing.

After all this rehabilitation, maybe he will need to take on a job as "real Food" consultant for hospitals.

Praying peace in healing...

Patience...

... Appreciation, with all the care surrounidng him, even (especially) the parts that piss him off... praying to relax into it and use it (accept it) for his healing.

... To feel all the love in the universe that homes in on him, so strongly that food, etc., is of no consequence.

... That the physical world pales in comparison to the realization of the love borne for him.

He must need another day in the hospital or he would be running out the exit. I remember the liquid diet being endless glasses of cranberry juice (I refuse to drink milk) and lemon ice.The first solid meal they offered me was FRIED CHICKEN! Just the smell was enough to make me sick after three days of liquids. So I went home.

Complaining about the food is a sure sign he is getting better. I suspect someone warned the nurses about his being prone to flatulance - hence the breakfast. It won't stop him. And even if it did, when Cletus shows up with Paw there is no telling what damage will be done or permanent wall decorations left behind for posterity (that may be a pun, think about it). You know they will sneak in some foul concoction made of moonshine and 'possum parts.
Spaw, we need you back here. Cleigh O'Possum is getting pretty heavyhanded with the "Golden Shower" Award. Just wasted one on gargoyle. Seems pretty pointless to me. I think ole Cleigh is still jealous of the little pissant and trying to wear him out. Odd that I should be asking you to institute a policy of moderation but...
Take as long as you need to feel better and come back to us healthy. We can be patient now that we know you will be OK.
Love you and Karen and the boys,
SINS

I'm not jewish, but I am a great believer in chicken soup. Or any kind of light soup for those recouperating. Surely the doctors wouldn't mind if you took him some? Over here it's practically the norm. to send out for food!

Well if he complains about the food, other stuff isn't bothering him. Keep going 'Spaw.

Hmmm. All he does is complain, moan, and bitch. Sounds like the ol' Spaw we know and love! Must not be too far from recooperatified.

Get better now, you old poser! You can't stay in the hospital just because the nurse with the low-cut scrubs and the habit of bending over you doesn't come back until Tuesday. Besides, she found out you were married and traded in her plunging neckline for a mock turtleneck. So get your ass well, and out of there, you old sinner!

I don't know why hospital food is so bad. You'd think they would have more concern for what goes inside you. You should be able to bring food in for a patient. That home-made chicken soup sounds like the ticket, and split pea soup contains protein w/o the bad stuff. So hang in there, it won't be long til you're home, where the real recovery will happen.

Oh pishaw, you crabby ole varmint! You just never mind all these vegemite, oats & soy milk eejits, now. What you need is a good Texas truckstop breakfast -- Four eggs fried over easy topped with a big helpin' of Two Alarm Chili and a generous sprinkling of tabasco sauce, two pieces of Texas toast grilled in butter and a bowl of hot gravy to dip 'em in, a big ole piece of fried ham, three pieces of crisp bacon sittin' on top of a mound of hashbrowns, and a great big bowl of hot grits with a big pat of butter sitting on top and oozing down the sides. And don't forget your 12 oz. cup of chicory coffee with sugar and real cream to wash it down. Oh, and if you want some ice water, that's a $1.00 extra...

Now there's a meal that'll fix ya up and get that hinder of yours in gear! So give those nurses (well, the female ones anyway) one last glorious glimpse of your glutious maximus and then hawl it back to the 'Cat!! You've been gone too long and we need that saggy dimpled shiney smart ass of yours back right now!

Well, I just talked to the man, himself and BOY! does he sound GOOD! Much better than the other day! He says "Hi" and "love ya."

They are just waiting for the numbers to come up to a suitable level, as they adjust his meds, and then he will be on his way home. He said probably won't make it for Mudcat Radio, as they will go to Connie's first, but it should be out of the hospital tomorrow or the next day, as long as the numbers look good.

Oh, and he got to have some Wendy's yesterday and he is off fluid restrictions, so he is MUCH happier. He actually sounded like he was chomping at the bit to get going, but of course, not pushing it.

He said the pain is just normal "I got beat up" pain and easily dealt with; he got to see each of the boys and the docs are all really pleased.

Did you know they've even replaced the valve in a 94 year old there?! Saw it on their website!

Anyhow, a couple more days and we should have him back. He's got PLENTY of material, has had the nurses in stitches with his wit and humour about the food and other things. It'll be great to hear from himself, won't it?!

Thanks,

kat

Maybe we could find the pizza delivery place closest to the hospital, and...nah.

Spaw's probably not complaining about the pain, because it could have been worse with a full chest-splitting Spaw-taco sort of procedure. Innards heal more quickly than outards - blood supply's better.

Take no dred to lie in bed
Better there than elsewhere dead
The guy before you slept there
And the guy before him too

Heal and go
And stomach rumbelo
He was up
Long before the dawn-o
To welcome in the nurse,
She wants to stick his arm-o
For Spaw he is a-mending,
It's almost time to leave-o

Tris and Mike and Karen
Have gone to Burger King-o
But Spaw he feasts on cardboard
And dreams about a hot wing-o

What happened to the last guy
Who complained the food was hell-o
It's now he eats the feathered goose
But Spaw's still stuck with Jell-o

At least that's what they tell us
They gripe and then they go-o
But liver's on the menu
And there's no more Uncle Joe-o

A little accounting to take care of here, from an email from Connie:

regarding the "fund" - I am so grateful for what people are doing and how generous they are...such "sweeties". I am so honored to be able to help in this small (to me) way of setting up an account, receiving, depositing. I don't know if I told you or not, K is aware of what is going on and we are putting the account in both of our names for the time being. Later it can be changed to their names.

Thanks so much to everyone for all of the support you've given, in all ways. I think Connie, Wayne, Karen, and Pat are pretty amazing people. I wanted to share a bit of what I sent to Connie:

I am so grateful that he is okay and that we all work so well together to get him there, not the least of which is what you have done, dear lady. You are a very special person and have been an incredible friend to Pat, Karen, the boys and to the rest of us. Thank you for that. Just think what this man has done with his love, humour, and outlook on life, bringing all of us together in a common bond of love for himself, and by extension, each other. Just wonderful.

Thanks,

I'm still flabber-f-n-gasted over all of this. Imagine replacing a heart valve in a body and a week later walking out of the hospital!! I remember when I was a lad about twelve years old our neighbor, a nice man that took time to talk to us kids and help us with various projects and problems, developed a heart problem like 'Spaw and his quality of life (and length of life) were drastically reduced. He couldn't do anything but sit around the house even though he would have liked to have gotten out and done things. I got in trouble once for going over to show him a box I had built from scrap wood using some techniques he had taught me. His wife hollered at me that I should know better than to disturb him. He was only 62 when he passed away, and I know that if some of todays medicine was available he would have probably survived much longer. That was in 1961, forty years ago. My how times have changed!!!!

Way to go 'Spaw...get the hell outta there soon. The staff at the NYCFTS all miss you and look for your quick return!

Pat,

Sitting at the campground at Old Songs on Sunday, Duane & I sang "Deep Settled Peace" (the only song Mudcatters think I can sing!) & thought of you. Wish you could have been there w/ us, but thrilled to pieces to hear how well you are doing! Keep up the good work, friend!

love from us,

Barbara & Duane
