the grouch is home

Hi.. well the surgery is over, and his highness is home... Dr couldn't believe how little pain meds he was using.. only T3's , everyone said that the hip would be the sorest, but the ankle is the sorest.. he is bored already, and it is only DAY 1, it is going to be a long long long winter. I think i am going to have to sleep in the spare room for the next week or so... he wakes and and starts talking to me..and i need my sleep...Sure gets dark fast now... i usually go out and feed the critters at 4 pm..and it is almost dark when i get back in... it was even darker to nite, as i had to feed the wild birds and doing the job i hate most in this world, stoking the outside fire.. i have to wear a cap as i end up scorching my bangs, guess i stick my head too close to the flames..Larry doesn't have any hair so it has never bothered him.. I have ordered him a "i walk free" a peg leg thingy where you don't have to use crutches.. WCB is going to pay for it...it should be here by Monday...i will take a picture of him and it and put it up..better go and make the JERK some supper.. nite nite sheila

I agree, it really sucks leaving for work AND coming home in the dark. The good news.......less than 1 month til the days start getting longer! Gotta love it! Do you think think this "surgery thing" might be your "lesson in patience" :) take care....

Have you thought about making the cat a bed in the barn next to Larry??? That way you might get some rest!! There's nothing quite as nasty as a Man with a sore something or other!! Put a little snooze medicine in his gravy . . .
