You ain't no sissy, girlfriend. Slow progress is still progress. You'll be back in fighting shape before you know it.

Glad to see your blog. We went to the Counter over the weekend and they seem to have some really interesting milkshakes in those old timey curvy glasses - you might like them. Hang in there. We are thinking about you and send our love. Terri & Barry

I miss you, and hope you continue to feel a little(or a lot) better each day. I hope you are enjoying your quality time with the doggies(and the boys!), and just keep focusing on getting stronger each day. You've got more spirit and drive than anyone I know.
Love you.

Elyse...your a genius!! You have created a perfect Haiku and you didn't even know it. Your poetry skills have been sharpened. Now we must all come up with a Haiku to respond.....will take some time

Well, thank goodness you aren't a sissy!! Rest, relax, read, all those good R words but most of all recover. Even if they are baby steps, they are steps...
This rainy day is perfect for snuggling up in your new sheets surrounded by your pack of admiring, loving pups.
Thinking of you and wishing you no fever and a warm, relaxing weekend.

I know Ali ( I know sissies and you NO sissie ) that these late rounds continue to take their toll as they pummel your body with lingering fevers and pain after the surgery but just take heed at this one from Cassius Clay - " It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen. " I am ready for you to tell me about positive things happening - with your will and fight it is not if it is when you tell us all.

Ok - now some topical comedy for you to crack a quiet smile... Love, Hugs and Prayers - Steve and the Family

The former chairman of the Fed, Alan Greenspan, said that the financial crisis is a one-in-a-century occurrence. McCain said, “He’s right — and I’ve been through three of them.”

Obama is even more popular overseas. Gallup polled citizens of 70 countries and found that foreigners supported Obama over McCain by nearly 4-1. It was an amazing poll: 30 percent supported Obama; 8 percent supported McCain; and the rest supported David Hasselhoff.

John Kerry is being criticized for making a joke about John McCain wearing adult diapers. Knock it off, Kerry. I tell the McCain diaper jokes! Stick to losing elections to the least-popular president ever in the history of America.

Sarah Palin had a good thought: She suggested that while Barack Obama is in Hawaii, it might be a good idea for McCain to keep an eye on Japan.

Of course, there's only one thing on everyone’s mind right now . . . the country is divided . . . that’s right — Madonna’s divorce.

It’s sad. Madonna and Guy Ritchie are a great couple. Madonna gave him the best years of her life, and he gave her an English accent.


Is anyone buying this whole “Joe the plumber” thing? Turns out that’s not his full name. It’s “Joe Hussein the plumber.”

I think Republicans are relieved by this whole Joe the plumber thing — a guy who gets down on his knees in front of a toilet and is not Sen. Larry Craig.

The economy’s in bad shape. Today I saw a pimp driving a Kia.

Sen. John McCain was on the program. He kept referring to me as “that one.”

McCain has unveiled his new campaign persona: "Fighting Underdog.” And if that doesn’t work, he’s going to be “Tyrannical Sea Captain.” And if that doesn’t work, “Fun-Loving Gaucho.” “Cruise Ship Gigolo.” “Heartless Press Agent.”

“W.” opens today. If there’s one thing I can’t get enough of, it’s the Bush family.

I’m proud to say that I’m in “W.” I have a small part. I play the guy who gets peppered with birdshot by Dick Cheney.

The presidential campaign is finally winding down. It seems like forever. This campaign began in 1955.

In a speech earlier this week, John McCain said, “I’ve been fighting for the United States since I was 17.” Then he said, “Of course, back then, it was called Pangaea.”

This week in Tennessee, a man named his newborn baby after Sarah Palin. The man named her Sarah Palin after he asked her to name three countries and she just stared blankly into space.

Much love, Mickey and Noel

It's a good day for a movie and a nap. Think of you often. Maybe we could talk politics; our side is looking pretty good for a change.
Wishing you well and soon.

My thoughts and prayers are with you as you await an answer and relief.

Hey girl! Well we won the football game so were off to play offs on Halloween night. It's a home game so I told the snack shack I'd help out so I could dress like a zombie and not look totally crazy>HAHA! I mean why have a varsity football game on Halloween Night--I wanna party! But I love football so...oh well! I'm glad to hear the fever is a little better. Maybe weather will improve and you could sit outside and get some sun. I know I need it, I'm pale! High School Musical 3 is coming out and everyone here is having a party and going tonight. Not me--I'm going to Eagle Eye.Ok enough aimless rambling. Love you! Bridgette
