Surgery has been delayed. Garry got pneumonia and I got a nasty cold. Apparently coughing, sneezing and heart surgery don’t go well together. Surgery has been rescheduled for March 14th when presumably Garry will not have pneumonia and I will have stopped sneezing and coughing.

I’m not exactly eager for surgery, but I am eager to get this done. I want to get on with living. Everything has been on hold for what feels like forever.

I’m frustrated with waiting and this is not the kind of waiting in which one can relax and forget about what’s coming.

So, that’s the story. I’m okay, getting over my case of “what’s going around.” Garry is taking antibiotics and in theory should be better soon. He is certainly restless enough … and we are running out of groceries. Tomorrow, he will emerge from the house one way or the other. It’s time.

    • It be Tuesday. I think I’m getting taken out for dinner 🙂 Thanks Rosie. Love your name. It reminds me of “The African Queen.” Charlie and Rosie, Bogart and Katherine Hepburn on their way down the river.


  1. Garry; Drink lots of fluids. Stay warm. Think Florida.

    Pneumonia? OMG!

    Get better.


    Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. J. Christ


    • Maybe it’s the climate. We seem to get a lot of pneumonia and chest colds. I can think Florida, but that doesn’t have much effect on our weather which stubbornly insists on being New England-ish 🙂


  2. Good luck on this. Before you know it you’ll be up and about again. Luckily blogging is a low key activity perfect for post surgery. You can tell us all about it.


  3. To say the words “enough already” would be the understatement of the decade. Job had it easier… That said, you are a power couple of the first order. Which says to me that you will overcome all of this nonsense and come out looking and feeling better than ever. I’m prepping the chicken soup for delivery now. Love both of you guys and am asking for some D intervention pronto.

    • Aww, thanks Jordan. I’m gonna hold you to that chicken soup! I have a feeling I might not make that late march movie date, but maybe after a while I won’t be so damned tired all the time!! I miss our nights on the radio!


  4. Really hate, hate, hate being sick. Hope you feel better soon and I also hope you get your surgery done asap so that you can put it behind you.


  5. Glad to hear that you have got a new date for surgery, Marilyn, and that it is not too far away. I can quite understand your wish to get going now. Do hope you both shake off the Dreaded Lurgy soonest. Ali xxx

  7. Sorry to hear about Garry. When you do have your surgery you will come out of it well and with some time you will feel great relief. Thinking of you both.
