You can keep your socks on

Now is a good time to ask all our friends to please ignore any negativity on this thread--and this includes you, Dys.

This is the place to talk about overcoming serious illness and the importance of knowing true friends are there, always caring and being supportive each step of the way.

Dys looks wonderful. His skin looks much better, the blueness of his eyes is bluer, the strength of his voice is better.

He has worked so hard to make the best of this and his progress is surprising even to his doctor.

This is a time for a good, ("Whew!"), and feelings of happiness that this fine man has made such progress--even 'strides' after his surgery.

Love to all.
Diane

If this is not impertinent, can you have him change his socks?

Farmerman, never lose your impertinence. Believe it or not, Dys has been able to put on his socks by himself for almost a week.

Wandel, djjd and Edgar, yes, his improvement has been amazing. Ol' blue eyes is back!

I apologize for being a racist whiner but to continue my observations about my recent experiences I noted that (probably because of the infections, blood clots and pneumonia) someone came into my room every 2 hours to take blood followed by someone taking my vitals. this went on 24/7 ok so no big deal as I did not sleep much anyway but none of those people poking my arm etc ever actually spoke to me even when I tried to acknowledge their presence. This lack of speaking gave rise to my feeling that I was no longer a human bean but rather some kind of test object/thing. One lady (position unknown to me) once complained that there was a piece of paper on the floor and "didn't I know how to use the waste basket" I responded that I had no idea if there was a waste basket nor where it might be. She was also the one that explained to me that Hillary Clinton intended to ban prayer and encourage burning the flag. I said nothing and paged the nurse of more morphine.

farmerman I have been able to put on my socks for nearly a week now, I prop my foot on the bed side-board put the sock on my toes and push my foot into the sock, not only that but after 5 weeks of experimenting with my Coumadin levels I appear to have stabilized at a theraputic level/dosage.

Re my previous post I want to establish the fact that I had several nurses that were nothing short of amazing. They listening to me rant and carry on (out of my head) and always managed to calm me down by just talking to me and explaining what they were doing to me and why. One of them stayed with me for hours starting at 2 a.m. when I was literally crazy with pain from the bladder infection.

@dyslexia,
I'm sorry this happened. I've not been a phlebotomist in a hospital (they didn't have those then) but I have taken scads of blood tubes in labs and clinics (well, and on and on re what happened re some tubes in varied labs). I always always always talked with the patient.

A memorable event was when I was sent to collect blood at the jewish home for the aged in LA and a wizened woman saw me and screamed you can't do this. Nobody can get my veins, and much disconcerting to me talk. I got it, she thanked me. Perhaps a ploy, but tough on a beginner.

I also (this was for that BH lab) had to go to a place in the hills with a princess in bed. Did that too.

I sure talked to both of them.

@Woiyo9,

Your most recent posts on this thread are extremely offensive.
Nothing makes them ok, even if you have "political differences" with dys.
I suspect you're offending every person reading this thread (who is concerned about dys's health) more than you're offending him.
Please stop it.

@msolga,
I read Diane's post first, so I refrained. Boy, did I want to say that, though.

Sorry, Di
