    **groooooan**

    well, i just got back. thanks a lot for the support. at least my doctor's original fear turned out not to be the case. i really wasn;t too stoked about another stay in the hospital.

    turns out it's not a blood clot, but a deep tissue infection which is causing the swelling, and subsequently reducing circulation in a leg with bad circulation already. i tell ya, i stopped by my work to explain what was up and i was literally almost in tears from the pain. i couldn;t even speak correctly (sounded like i was about to cry... which i was).

    luckily, i didn;t have to stay overnight at the hospital. they just hooked me up to an IV, ran some unltrasound tests, took some blood and gave me an injection of pain killers and something else (through the IV)... think it was antibiotics and let me sit for awhile. my temperature came down and i stopped feeling the immense pain (lets hear it for pain killers). i am still pretty groggy from that .


    anwyays..... Indy, JCOS, agentbeast, minir, UOD, YoS, TIGRESS, brembo, Illini, LT-73, YeOlde, downhill, dud89, blebbs99, Annalysa, Norm, Ghosthunter, nightowl, and De PLano..... you guys are the greatest. i was really bummed out this afternoon and this help my spirits out a lot. i am going to be essentially bedridden for the next 4 to 7 days depending on how things go, so i will pop in and pipe up whenever i think i can be a suitable nuisance.



    thanks, guys .

    Good news in a way....hospital food is like eating cardboard...(ok the jello is suitable for wiggly stuff)..

    Sounds like a good time for...................


    Lots of Hendrix.

    If there's anything we can do.....let us know.
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    lol... agreed. i dont know which is worse.... cabin-class airline food or hospital food. probably airline food, but if a person's in the hospital, they're probably not feeling too good so it probably wouldn;t matter if it was fillet mignon or prime rib..... the enjoyment just wouldn;t be there.


    and you know it! (lots of Hendrix). and some Pink Floyd, too. and some Croce and some Steely Dan and all the other Rancho-Relaxo type music i can encue




    oh, and thanks for the positive sentiment, Hopeful. after the terrible afternoon i had, all the well wishes really perked me up. thanks again.

    yeah, yeah..... you love me and you know it.

    admit it .


    BTW, the pain pills are mine! these have to be the biggest vicodin pills i have ever seen. not a huge fan of vicodin, actually. but hey.... if they make me so groggy that i wet myself, then i suppose the pain is really irrelevant

    A whole different meaning to..."Cheeseburger in Paradise"

    Scott man I'm glad your doing ok. Couldn't you have at least faked it and got you sponge bath? lol Nah, with your luck you would have gotten a nurse named Helga that once played Australian League football.

    Speaking of which....

    That's brembo's favorite kind of woman.

    And...

    You guys killed me with your replies in this thread. If it made me laugh and I mean hard, I know ol' Faust has to feel much, much better.

    mmmmm.....


    thanks, guys. i have managed to stay away from vicodin for the most part. have just been indulging in some beer when things get touchy. i probably haven't been keeping the pressure down as much as i am supposed to (supposed to be in bed with my leg elevated most of the time, but can't stand the crap on TV - while laying in bed - for too long), but that's just going to be a factor.

    seems i am due for some horizontal time as i type this. nighty-night, guys
