Terry, you do NOT cluck like a chicken! (except when you're talking to one....does that mean your surgeon is a chicken?). I am always a chicken before a surgery or ordeal, not afterwards. We're all waiting eagerly to hear how the surgery goes. The worst is probably just about now, when the waiting is not over and the surgery draws close. Hope the surgeon is much more adept with his knife than you are with yours. :D

Terry, always have your gun with you, first shoot THEN ask!

Hugs and best wishes!

jeez, everybody's really interested
in them thar drugs huh?
so if you already cluck like a chicken,
perhaps you'll play the violin again...
(i think that comes from an old joke...)

according to my calculations,
you should be barfing your toenails up
round about now...
nawwww,
but i hope all is well, and you are
settling into healing already....
hypericum, arnica and rescue remedy
and ginger tea, and maybe some whiskey!

Doug said...

Best wishes for a speedy recovery. That's funny, though.

Make sure you get plenty of ice cream too. Always ice cream after surgery or hospital visit, or any medical appointment really, even if you just drive by a hospital in your travels.

Yep, laid around in the pre op for 12 HOURS in my oh-so-skimpy hospital gown... hell, I wanted to fast all day anyway... limb is gloriously numb from the block then gave me in the upper arm near the tourniquet... not looking forward to when that sucker wears off. I cluckcluckcluck I think something fishy happened while I was knocked out..cluck but I can't remember a thing... am panning on getting daughter to pick up my nature drugs today. whiskey? bleah xo

SoCAL Sal...LOLOL what the cluck? HAHAHAHA must try to remember that one.

Sal & Jeff: Thanks sis :) I like it when I get cluck personal nursing care.

Kelly - Ha ha - yes, the hand surgeon was very good with his knife, a whole bunch cluck better than I. I keep hearing the chicken... I thought I put her away...

Ariel - Thanks sweetie- going chicken hunting? Or is that why there are so many dead pigeons hanging around in Hungary?

Red Mojo - Yes! I prefer Haagen-Dazs dark chocolate coated vanilla bars. Ice cream is the best cluck drug hands down.

I think I just heard some clucking...Thinking of you...Best wishes.

Icarus said...

The raven clucks? Heavens, when you get as out of touch as I am right now, things happen, so you don't know what's going on. That's bad. I just hope whatever you had done went perfectly and you can talk to all the animals now.
I know full well that I get more sense out of our cat than an awful lot of "humans" around here!
