And I thought I'd get away with you telling them
Actually I forgot Izzie, the first thing he told me was " Izzie phone me !!"
So, yes, I visited Danny and Anna at the hospital yesterday in the afternoon after calling her to find out what time she was going to go down. His sister and her husband turned up at the end and we all had such a laugh.
Danny was bright and bubbly the whole time. He was sitting in his chair. He talked the whole time.. A few little coughs here and there, rugged up nice and warm.. Refused to drink some energy drink, even though two nurses asked what he had, had for liquids. He just held up his feel good Ice Coffee and said "I'm the boss, this is it".. Anna and I just smiled and Anna said "What? You think I can make him? " Danny said " you know I'm the boss don't you?"
I bought them both a Danish apple strudel and Danny went pftttttt to his lunch which we are not sure what it was, it didn’t look that good and they both ate the Danish.. and loved it.
Anna still has the chore of cooking for him BUT, every second night, she said no need to spoil him. He is receiving garlic prawns and rice tonight and off course, couldn't help himself but tell me what he was going to eat.. Danny and his food.
We had a chat about the Nursing Home. Danny bought it up. I was able to tell the tales of my ex-husband Nan and the times I visited and how she loved certain people there, ate with them, each visited each others rooms, of those that made friends. That here in Australia, they are more like old Hotel Rooms, most have a sliding door to outside so you can sit outside. Dinner is usually 3 courses and you can choose who you sit with.. Good friends were made and you have your own room. He has his eye on a Danish Nursing Home wonder why? (Food) He was “more than ok” honestly about this, we talked about if he fell etc. $80k a year ? If he was at home with 24/7? What is Australia thinking.
But, also, he told us that the Doctors aren't convinced that he won't walk, so they are still doing their thing. I told Danny to wriggle his toes and foot daily a few times, well that was a fight.. Anna just laughed, "he won't listen to you, oh wait, if you tell him you will fly around the room on your broomstick he might"... She is such a character. But, I hope he does, I told him he has nothing to lose...
Then he talked about A2K.. for ages, everyone. He's lurked a bit so that's good. Actually, Anna asked "Are they all female?"
Danny then went into other names, Sturgis, Spendius & Try, he really loves reading Try's Posts
And, I explained there are a lot of guys here but mainly in religion or politics not so much in Crosswords or Games. As Izzie stated, he will come back when he's able 2 you know...
Anna cut out a Grumpy Old Man note from the Advertiser, it’s stuck on his TV. We all giggled.
Actually we laughed a lot today all of us.
I took Anna home had a cig with her (shhh) and a chat about anything and everything for 30 minutes.
Danny told Anna he has $600 saved and she has to take me to dinner and play the pokies lols. $20 for the pokies for FS.. I forgot Izzie, he also said he wish he could do the same for you, with us all.
And I told Danny he owes you a lot of money.
He was in high spirits, I gave him a huge hug at the beginning and end, and kiss at the end and wiped the lipstick off hehe. Well as typical Danny, big smile . But Anna knows that.. She is one heck of a lady.
Ok that's it.. But definitely if you wish to send things, I have already told him, plus photos
