Think hit in the chest with a baseball bat.
Back to back endoscopic procedures anger the chest gods.
I managed to make it to the pool party in my honor this afternoon, but just barely.
The gods were so angry that I missed Kathy's awesome dinner, including the best stuffed cabbage south of the Second Avenue Deli.

I am hoping for a good night's sleep, and a better day tomorrow.

I have read your blogs and have been thinking of you. You remind me that we should all go to movies in the middle of the week--it is decadence!

You are a strength and a wonder and this is not the first time I have thought that I want to be like you when I grow up. (I keep avoiding that grown up thing!).

You are in my thoughts--

Top Ten Messages Left On Barack Obama's Answering Machine

10. "Hi, it's Eliot Spitzer — let's get some girls and celebrate."
9. "John McCain here. I . . . uh, crap, I forgot why I called."
8. "Hi, this is Al Gore. Don't make the same mistake I did and win the popular vote."
7. "It's John McCain again. What is this, some kind of machine that answers the phone?"
6. "This is John Kerry; are you interested in a subscription to Sports Illustrated?"
5. "You've just made a powerful enemy of the Pantsuit Manufacturers of America."
4. "Hi, it's Randy Jackson. Your last speech? A little pitchy, Dawg."
3. No number 3 — writer stuck on plane with Scott McClellan.
2. "Hillary calling; I'm still prepared to offer you the vice president position."
1. "Oprah here: I helped you get the nomination, now will you help me get rid of Dr. Phil?"


A few days before his proctological exam, a one-eyed man accidentally swallows his glass eye. In the Dr's office the man gets undressed and bends over. The proctologist looks up the man's arse and sees the glass eye staring back at him.

" You know " he says, " You really gotta learn to trust me. "

A woman is examined by her Dr.

The Dr. says , " Take this green pill with a glass of water as soon as you wake up in the morning. Take this blue pill with a glass of water right after finishing your lunch. Then just before going to bed, take this red pill with another glass of water. "

Gee Wiz asks the lady, "what can possibly be the problem here with me? "

Dr. snaps back, " You are not drinking enough water. "

Thanks to Bridgette T., I finally figured out how to blog! I have been trying since I talked to John the other day. Remember we are right around the corner and would love to help you anyway we can. If Brent needs transportation somewhere or you need the dogs fed or errands run, just give Barry and I a call. We both have admired your discipline and strength for years and know those traits will see you through. Concentrate on taking care of Elyse. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Hey Cousin...

Said a prayer for you in temple today. Even walked up to the ark and gave your name to the rabbi. Can't get much holier than that!

Look up.

Hi Ewysche,
I hope you are feeling better today (and not worse). Your new motto: Walk a mile in my shoes.
Personally, don't know what I would do.
Always thinking of you, John and Brent.
