Thursday Thoughts

As my faithful readers might have already surmised, I spent the last few days in the hospital along with my old nemesis, Mr. Bowel Obstruction. What? That sounds familiar to you? Didn’t I just go to the hospital a day or two before Christmas while still in Denver? Yes Ma’am (or Sir), I certainly did. But apparently bowel obstructions have no rules. I will tell you about my experiences next week. But I’m feeling much better and back at it. (Whatever “it” is.)…..

Go Chiefs
My son might not forgive me, but I will admit that I was cheering for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday from my hospital bed. He is a loyal Broncos fan (as am I), and wouldn’t allow himself to root for anyone else in our division. But I like Mahomes and I cannot lie. By the way, this was the second Super Bowl that I watched from a Mountain Vista Medical Center hospital bed. Back in 2011, when I was in the same hospital for 28 days, I watched the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. I don’t want it to become my Super Bowl tradition, however.

Super Bowl Snack
And while everyone else was munching on nachos and chicken wings and queso dip, I was unable to take anything by mouth. So here was my Super Bowl snack…..

And don’t misunderstand. I was not able to chew on the ice. I could only rub the ice cubes on my lips. I sent a photo of my miserable snack to my brother, and he responded: Pace yourself. It’s a long game.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame
One of my great nephew Austin’s finest baseball moments this past week….

  1. You couldn’t even put the whole ice cube in your mouth? You poor darling. So thankful you are feeling better and back home. And that same Super Bowl in 2011 was miserable for me too-I caught up on that one in the NICU.

  2. Hi Krissy! Sorry to hear you’ve been under the weather! Sometimes these golden years are for the birds!
    Take care and get well!
