BS: Get Well Soon GIOK...

From: gnu

Some might say John 'Giok' MacKenzie is not a hip 'Cat. But, he is a man of great humility and introspection. And, he is a man of action. Realizing this, Dear John has embarked this very day on a journey of self-renewal to the Institution of Raigmore where he will, indeed, get hip.

The surgery shall be performed tomorrow and G will be in hospital for about five days, if the staff don't let him out early for bad behaviour.

Get well reel soon, in jig time, as it were, G!

Miss ya already.

I agree - get back here as soon as possible.

One of my friends has a very new hip, tho hers took a tad longer to work properly as she had to get the residue from a broken ankle sorted out before she could be back dancing.

We'll look forward to seeing the new improved Giok when we come to visit in June.

As for the morris dancing, if that happens you could do worse than follow SINSULL's example and use a couple of bras instead of hankies..........

Just make sure you ask permission from their owners before taking them off!

Our Giok was obviously far too hip to begin with, or the Force would never have sent hi down this path. Even with surgery, he won't go down the Morris dance stream. He might learn some of those mid-Eastern fan dances, though, from the land of Mesopotamia. He could become a meso-hippopotamus.

My hope for you to get well as soon as possible, my Scottish friend, is slightly self-serving. I would like your wheelchair.

A few years ago, I queued for several hours to go on the Milennium Wheel in that London, and just as we got to the front of the queue, some fooker ran over me toes in their wheelchair, no waiting, straight into the pod. The moment the doors were closed, the bugger was bounding round the carriage like an antelope.

I imagine it will be very useful for getting the best seats on planes, parking next to the door at Tesco's and I can enter the Marathon without fear of failure to secure a place.

So get well soon, old friend!

My mother's done it twice, Giok, and she's got many years on you.

You WILL be morris dancing in no time (should you desire to) -- or at least walking about without pain. (What a concept!)

My hips are fine (Curmudgeon concurs), but my knees are shot -- and somehow they don't seem to "grow back", do they? How come we don't get the heavy duty industrial strength knees and hips as standard equipment?!?

Of course there's a downside to the recovery process -- it's called "rehab". Home of ex-drill sergeants with medical training.

Here's to a quick recovery!

Giok, me friend,

The Reckoning arrived here while you were getting your comeuppance in the capable hands of nurse Ratched and her competent staff. Thank you ever so much for that ;-))

Hope you are well and truly on the mend now, although I'm sure the nurses will have felt safer while you were still under the influence of some kind of calming substance..

Btw it has me a bit worried that nurse Ratched is asking for her *bloody* pen back. What on earth has she (or you) been doing with that pen??

Best wishes,

Bente

Rapaire don't encourage him to be sitting up in the bed shouting

"I am William Wallace. And I see a whole army of my countrymen,
here in defiance of tyranny! You have come to fight as free men. And
free man you are! What will you do without freedom? Will you fight?"
"Two thousand against ten? Fight and you may die. Run and you
will live at least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now,
would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for
one chance, just one chance, to come back here as young men and tell
our enemies that they may take our lives but they will never take
our freedom!"

Of course that's what Mel Gibson said William Wallace said so it must be true..*grin*

Well what can I say, thanks a bunch for all the good wishes and the abundant chuckles.
I am back home as of this afternoon, and am still on elbow crutches, full recovery is expected at 6 weeks according to the Docs. Walking is hard work, and it takes a while for the severed muscles to realign themselves and knit together, so movement is limited.
Rest assured that I shall NOT be taking up Morris dancing, I can find less strenous excuses for imbibing large amounts of beer.
Remember someone once said "You should try everything once, except incest, and folk dancing" a sage piece of advice in my book.
Thanks again for all the good wishes, and to the Guest who made the comment about my ongoing tussle with the Shambles, it would have helped of you'd read the previous posts fully!
Thanks indeed to Roger for his wishes, and the realisation that our argument is largely idealogical, and not personal like some I could mention!!
[Ooh did I say that out loud?]

Giok,

You've been missed in Cork. You'd have particularly liked the biased whisk(e)y tasting session in Jamesons destillery in which three Irish whiskeys won easily against a Scotch, a Bourbon and whatever else.

How can an Irish Whiskey win a tasting session against a Scotch you may ask? Easily, the Scotch was Johnny Walker Red label. You would have been proud of our protests when we heard which whisky was to represent Scotland. Well, at least we now know for sure that there are Irish whiskeys that taste better than Johnny Walker, but we would not have doubted that before the session.

Anyway, we had a wee dram for your recovery and it seems to have done good. At least to us.

Now, lads, you canna be pulling Jock's leg at will like this, for a few more days. These things take time to heal a bit.

Now the BIG question is, whether the wee lasses in his area are well-clued in and will be able to detect a false hip from the genuine article, or whether they will fall (pardon the expression) for his artifical version. I don't suppose they do surgery on round heels thereabouts, do they? Make them ball bearing, or Teflon or some such? It's a slippery topic, that. But you'll be the master of it in no time, Giok!

Lord of the Dance? Will he rip his shirt off and stand there all sweaty in his kilt?

Jacqui - get the camera ready!

In truth I miss you at the moment - as much as you will miss a sore old nagging hip joint.

Perhaps you will find that you will come to miss me the same way?

Thank you George, Skarpi and Terry for your calls. I'd just hung up from speaking to Terry when himself rang! He's doing fine and in a lot less pain compared with the first hip op. So sometime next week he should be back amongst you spreading his words of wisdom!!! Liz.
