Xmas 2009

Today Jen and I spent Christmas with my sister.

I was tasked to bring drinks, Jen made Mac and Cheese.  LOL  Both were done successfully. LOL

We got there about 1 pm and we had a great time.  My sister's family was there, including Justin!  Doc was there, Tanna and her family were there.  It was just perfect.  There was no real stress - everything went off without a hitch.  It was just a wonderful day.

I am very glad for my sister that she had a good Christmas. 

I hope and pray that the coming year will be better than 2009 for all of us.

Beginning tomorrow - time to go to Barnes and Noble to spend those giftcards I got! WHOOOO!!!!

Have yourself a Merry

Little the song goes.

YAY it is the holiday season!  And, it is a short week at work!  A WIN WIN!!!

Last year I posted lots of Christmas tunes...maybe in the coming week I might repeat some of those...hehe...but in the meantime I know I have been blogging less and less.  I am sort of disappointed with that and hope in the coming year to turn it around.  There is alot to talk about - things I should discuss, and such.  I have just been rather lazy when it comes to trying to formulate thought and put it down for a post.  That needs to change!

I haven't even emailed Jonathan @ the Jewish Agency.   I have to do that too..

Riddle me this

Yesterday, I got a gift in the mail and I have no idea who it is from.  The box was from the Tiny Archeologist and the location was from Florida.  Now I know I am doing a Secret Santa - but I got that gift already!  And, it came from a different state.  So, this has me totally flummoxed.  I opened it (since it is Chanakukah) LOL and it was a gorgeous replica of the Ark of the Covenant.  About 4-5 inches long, gold in color, about 2-3 inches from the base to the top.  I would really appreciate a way to contact the sender to thank them for a lovely gift.  I am going to place it right between my dead sea salt and rock from the Masada.  I have a pic and will get it posted soon.

Update from Lital

Yep got an email from her - before I went to the ER.  She is still busy with school and her friends. 

I am so glad that it looks like she will be graduating - next year I think!    Such a great accomplishment.  Hopefully she will be following in Dan's step in getting her films put on the film festival circuit.  In the meantime she is trying to start a push to get Kevin Smith to visit Israel.  If he does - I am so going to fly there! 

I responded to her email after I got home from the hospital.

Xmas shopping

Tis the season for Christmas shopping.  There was a time when I really really liked this the best part of the holidays.  This year, not so much.  But, I do try to get the best out of things. 

I do have a good idea of what I am getting my sister.  The laptop is only part of it.

I do need to talk to her about what to get Grandma.  I think we can easily go together on it and get her and my uncle a nice gift.

I need to get something for Grumpy and my boss.   And today I have to get something for my secret Santa.

Tink already has her new laptop.  LOL

What was funny is Tink asked me if I was getting Adi or Lital anything for Xmas.  I laughed and said no...I never bought them anything for Xmas - just their B-days.   That was funny.

For myself I would like to get a new LCD TV for my bedroom - I dont know if I will be able to swing it - but if I can - kewl!!!

My adventure

Wow I had a fun weekend.  Wednesday I was supposed to get an endoscopy, but I was sick and couldnt do it so it got postponed until Dec 17th.  All fine and good right?  LOL NO!!!

Wednesday evening I start getting cramping in my abdomen and I take some pain pills and go to sleep hoping by the morning the pain will go away.  I wake up at 2 am just in alot of pain go to the restroom and try to go back to sleep until 4 am when I wake up to take Jen to work.  About 3:45 am I wake up in even worse pain.  I wake Jen up so she can start getting ready for work and I tell her that I need to call 911 as well.  I slowly go downstairs, get on my couch and call 911.  By 4:15 am the paramedics are at my house.  I explain to them my situation, they take my blood pressure and it is elevated.  I tell them I need to go to the ER.  They ask me if I can drive, I can't.  So, they hook me up in an IV, give me some meds for Nausea and we wait for the ambulance to transport me to St. Lukes in Phoenix.

The ambulance arrived and at about 4:30 am I was on my way to the hospital.  I get there and am immediately admitted and after triage they start giving me some meds.  2 units of morphine.  It starts helping but damn the pain was just something fierce.  If I could I would have had them take me into surgery right away to fix my intestines.  But, it would be better to wait it out until I can have the one surgery to fix everything.  The last thing I need is to piecemeal each procedure.  Instead I get pain management, blood test, nausea meds, and a CT SCAN - YAY! LOL

After being in the ER for about 3-4 hours the surgeon comes by.  My surgeon.  I hope he will be the one doing the main procedure in the next month or two.  He tells me that he does not think I should go home, that I should stay the day for observation in case there is any negative response that would require immediate treatment.  I completely agree and thusly I am admitted.

Once in the room my pain management is greatly improved.  I contact my sister she brings my PC later that evening.  My relatives are called and LOL I text Grumpy....until my texts start looking more like drunk texting and then I pass out. 

I remember my sister showing up that evening with the PC.  I sort of remember pieces of our conversation...I doze off again.  The IV starts aching my wrist (yes I do not recommend IVs on anyone's wrist).

Friday I am actually feeling better.  Less pain meds needed - and less frequency as well!  The doctors can actually feel around the intestines without tears showing up in my eye.  The swelling and tenderness diminished.  The surgeons all agree that if this keeps up I should be able to go home Friday and that is precisely what happens.  I get discharged around 5 pm on Friday.  They give me my last dose of morphine and send me home (my sister came to pick me up.).   I was SO glad to have that damned IV off my wrist.  And nervous that the intense pain would come back.  So far, I have been lucky.  At least now I have an ample supply of pain meds to hopefully  handle the jabs of pain. 

I took a laid back weekend to try to recover from the adventure in St. Lukes and to try to get over this damned cold - oh yeah forgot to mention that - while all of this has been going on, I have been fighting this damned head-cold and coughing bout.

What a weekend!

Dec 7th

Today is the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.  The 9/11 of the greatest generation.  They are truly the greatest of generations!  True hero's!!!  Please take a moment of silence to think of them and the sacrifices they endured to help keep all of us free of Nazism and Fascism.

Well, the aaliyah is on hold. 

I have to have surgery - Wednesday I go to have an Endoscopy.  The surgeon is going to take photos of my stomach and such to see what can be done and then I am working on the cardiac and pulmonary clearance - once I get that taken care of then I can move forward.  I do think that I will end up having to postpone the aaliyah for a few years at least. 

So, what to do? I have to say this sucks!  Though I have been told that taking trips is fully allowed I just need to be able to check in with the Dr and make sure any possible complications can be resolved.   I, of course, will agree and comply with it. 

My brain keeps saying Damn it...and trying to find a way to just carry on and move to Israel.  But, I know logically it would be insane for me to do that.  I need to be healthy to be able to do such a move.   So, for the time being this is it.

HEhe funny


Dr. Abbey Bartlett:  I was hiking, Oliver, I was hiking.  Are you really that much of an enemy of nature?

Oliver Babish:  Nature is to be protected from. Nature, like a woman, will seduce you with its sights,  its scents, and its touch, and then it breaks your ankle – also like a woman.

Dr. Abbey Bartlett: What the hell kind of dates are you going on Oliver?
