:( Okay, having your mettle tested is one thing but it is getting out of hand. I got a call a few hours ago from my daughter. Sherene has fallen and broke her tibia. She is in the emergency room as I write. I am actually on the phone with the hospital, on hold, waiting to speak to her or her doctor. I'll get back to this as soon as I find out what.............

Okay, I just got off the phone. She has been moved to a room and is waiting for the surgeon to arrive. Surgery will be whenever he arrives. She is sedated and on pain control meds. I spoke with her and she is irritated and in some pain but is still complaining. I think that's a good sign. When she doesn't complain she is really bad off. She was worried that no one would take care of Atty. I said one of the kids would give her a beer and she wouldn't care if they fed her. atty likes beer. I can not leave and go up because I have a surgery scheduled for Monday to get the cancer on my back removed. I just got back from my doctor who said it has to be removed as soon as possible. I had called Sherene a half hour before she fell to let her know that I had been scheduled for surgery. I may have an overnight stay depending on the severity of the surgery. Most likely I will be outpatient and home on my own.

I have to wait to hear how the surgery goes. It may be late into the night or even early morning before they opperate. With her wrist she had to wait four days before having the surgery done. Four days laying in pain before they could get the specialist they needed to repair the wrist.


Well, it's 10:00 somewhere, Oh, that's here, so I'll get off this thing and go rest my aching back and mind. I need a Grog!

B) Saturday August 20.2011.. I just got off the phone with the hospital and then with Sherene. Surgery is scheduled for 3:00 this afternoon. She is in a lot of pain in spite of all the meds she is on. She is worried about Atty being cared for and fed more than the surgery. Typical, that bird gets more attention and is fed better than me. :laugh: Okay, time for a psyco-chicken sandwich! :laugh:

There is nothing I can do about getting up there to be with her this time so I had best do whatever I can on the boat.The backup generator is out again. Some kind of overload fried one of the output systems. My onboard alarms went off like the boat was sinking. It detected the voltage spike and crossed polarity and set off every alarm on this tub. The breaker did not trip and the outlet plug fried. Yesterday it was the pull cord on the starter. :woohoo: Where is my sanity? This is cazy would be an understatement

Oh great, here come the idiot weekenders blowing through the anchorage already. It looks like another terrific day in paradise! Who wants a big old bargeboat?

:woohoo: Stay tuned for later updates as they come in. :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: Dancing girls, I need dancing girls... in real short skirts! Volunteers???? No John, not you! :laugh:

It's now just after 5:00 here. Sherene went through the surgery and seems to be doing well. I spoke with her nurse and she said it went well but I am waiting on the doctor to call and give me the particulars but everything seems normal for the proceedure she had. 3 or 4 days in the hospital on pain management and then back to our daughter's house. It turns out that both bones were broken just below the knee. Tibia and fibia I think they are called. This is possibly going to be a long recovery......again.

They pulled the switch trick with the surgical timing. I called at exactly noon and she was in surgery. It was not supposed to be until 3:00. I guess that takes some of the worry out of waiting. You are not planning on going until 3 and they grab you at 11.


Back to whatever it is that I do.............
:woohoo:

I have a minor surgery scheduled for tomorrow morning. I have to get the boat's batteries charged up today in case I have to stay overnight or for a day or two. I'll get my neighbor to keep an eye on her. I
also have to call Sherene in a half hour to see how she is this morning. I have had both knees
repaired twice so I know about the kind of pain she is having. Not fun! She is still on a morphine
drip this morning but they should take her off that by this afternoon if all goes well. I think they had
me on it for about 12 to 24 hours after my surgeries.


I guess everything is not quite what you expect. There are other ways of looking at everything. Suppose I said I was going to show you a picture of a 320 pound woman? What do yo have pictured in your mind?

:S Part of a conversation with my brother a few minutes ago;

My Brother; "Tropical Storm Irene coming your way!"
Me " Nah, really? When?"
My Brother; " Friday the 26th?"
Me; " Really?"
My Brother; "Duck Bro!"
Me " Thanks, See Ya!"
My Brother; " Bye!"
Me; "Bye!"

We're not normally a long winded family except for me. :laugh: :laugh:

Thanks Grubby, I'll be sanding and painting before to long too. Neverending battle with the elements.


B) Just got off the phone with Sherene and she is sitting in a chair. She may be going home Tuesday or Wednesday. She must feel better because all she wants to do is argue. :laugh:


Almost 3:00, I forgot lunch. Hummmm, hot dogs and beans? That sounds good. I have some cornbread that I baked last night too. Okay, gotta go. :laugh:

8:00P.M. I just talked with Sherene and she informed me that she was going home in the morning. Somehow I doubted it as I have been through 4 knee surgeries and never got out only 44 hours after surgery. I called the desk and the nurse said no way. I called my daughter and she said No Way. I don't understand why she is trying to get out before she is ready. I know she hates hospitals but there is a time when you have to do what your doctor tells you to. Sherene does not like being told to do anything. Nope! It doesn't work. She puts on her "I'm gonna smack the white off your face" look and I usually let her have what she wants. :laugh: I guess she thinks that will work on the nurses and doctors. :ohmy: Not likely!

I'm going to go throw a steak on the grill and have dinner. :woohoo: This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

B) Hey everyone, I have been thinking of taking the boat down to Glades Boat Storage near La Belle to haul out.I am having trouble with the steering and need to repaint the hull and bottom and do a lot of other work on her. Many things have gotten ahead of me because of having to wait for the finances to catch up with the needed work. The needed work is gaining. If I don't find a way to get caught up I am going to be in deep trouble very soon. She will be paid off in 4 payments and that will free up a considerable chunk of cash. :woohoo: If I take my time going down I can have a 3 or 4 day trip on the water and haul out sometime after the 1st of the month.

The trip would be about 140 miles or so. I have found one straight six cylinder Volvo diesel and will go get it in a month or so. I still need one more. I intended to replace these gas hogs and change everything over to a more modern diesel setup. The steering is off the Flintstone's car and needs repair or replacement. I think the latter... Then there is the main generator. I have no idea of what the idiot did when he dropped that metal can in the control pannel while the generator was running. That idiot would be me! The radar has also quit. That should be an easy fix because it was running when I anchored here. It just will not run right now.

The reason I am considering this is that I may have someone interested in helping with the finances. I am working on a deal that will get the boat upgraded and refitted for use in a money making deal. I can not get into that yet as it is still being talked through and nothing is in black and white yet. It could fall through for all I know but I do know that the boat needs some heavy work whether I have to pay for it or I can get someone to advance me some help for future considerations. I do know that to do this there will have to be some serious remodeling and changes. I'll have to wait and see what happens but I would still like to haul out even if the deal does not work out. I can still make the upgrades without help but it will take a lot longer. I'll find out more in a few days.

Time to hit the sack. I have an early day tomorrow and need to get to bed. :ohmy: .

Whitefeather,
We've just completed moving our office to the house. I just got caught up on your posts. I really wish I could give you a hand, but as you know they're tied. Give my best to Sherene and the best of luck to you on the surgery.
If you do go back to Labelle say hi to my Mom as you pass Alva.

B) Aquanut my friend, Everything is fine and I have a followup on the 7th with a dermotologist if farther treatment is needed. I just got back about an hour ago and am grilling some range chickens on the barbie. :laugh: "Head um up, Move um out!"

My brother Ron may be going along with me if I get to run back to La Belle. I will most definately say Hi to your Mom when we run by with the truck. I'll see if she wants to go to the Alva Diner at the highway for lunch or dinner. Or I'll ask if she wants us to stop by with something. I'll get in touch shortly because I don't know exactly when we will go but I'll keep you all posted here.

Okay, I have to run topside and check the range chickens. The last time I fixed chicken I forgot it was on the grill and had little blackbird feet.

I got to them in time. Just a little blackened but smellin good to high heaven. Flipped and grillin on the backside. Yum!!1 :woohoo: When my daughter was very small she would say "Dad, Mommy is burning chicken for supper and it really stinks pretty" I think that was meant as some sort of compliment. Mine stinks pretty too! :laugh:

Sherene is feeling better and is driving every body up there insane with wanting to go back to the daughter's house. She drove the doctors and nurses crazy until they agreed to let her go. Now she has no one to go pick her up from the hospital. At least that was what I was told about an hour ago. :side:

Okay, I don't want to burn dinner any more than it is supposed to be burned so I am going to take my drink and go up and watch the grill. :silly:
