Sorry ABout The Lack Of Blogging...

...over the past couple of days. I have been busy with health issues. Went into the hospital, on Wednesday morning, at 630AM, for outpatient surgery - implantation of a stomach PEG (feeding tube) in anticipation of radiation therapy. That turned into a two day cluster fuck and I was admitted to the hospital after the PEG was implanted due to lots of pain. I was told on Thursday morning that I would most likely be discharged by noon. I was again told, at 940PM on Thursday, that I was going to be discharged. I was finally given the discharge paper to sign at 1040PM on Thursday - I ask what friggin hospital kicks you out of bed to go home at 1040 at night when you are still complaining of the reason (lots of pain) they kept you there for in the first place. I got out of the hospital at about 1055 to 1100PM, walked out, they did not wheel me out. Then I waited outside for15 or 20 minutes for my cab to show up; the cab that the hospital supposedly arranged for me, then walked home. It was only a mile and I had paced the halls in the hospital ward at least that much today so I knew I was up to it. The whole stay in the hospital was pretty much similar to my discharge - one minor screw-up or something not going as planned one after another.

I am not going to rant on about it now. I'll just say, I was pretty miffed when I got home and ready to scream at the world about it. Not now though, maybe later, my mind is too mellow now after stopping over at Double Nickel Farm and reading the post Jen wrote about me and our friendship.

All the best,
Glenn B

I am glad you made it home safe. The road should not be so darn bumpy and filled with careless insensitive folks. But remember this, even in the times you feel you are alone, you are not. Your friends are here and there~ praying for you. We are doing for those near us, because we cannot be there for those far away. It truly is the simple thought of a ripple in the water.

Keep up writing. I need to hear of NY, the critters(squirming about the snakes) and well your hunting trip...

What a terrible way to be treated when you are ill. Our health system in Australia is in a bad state too, no such thing as caring in hospitals any more.

I just wanted to drop by and wish you all the best with your cancer treatment.

I came via your dear friends Jen's blog.

Greeting from Texas,
There are really no words at a time like this sir. Coming from a stranger they sound hollow. Know your are in our thoughts and prayers.
One day at a time.

It is a great thing that you have your friend Jen to share such beautiful words. Sounds like she is always a blessing after a bad day.
