Ospitale Hospitality - Update

Well I walked out of Casa di Cura Privata Sanatrix late yesterday afternoon lighter of heart, of wallet and, thanks to the English salts, of weight. Because the file is turned over to me I also have a fist full of pictures of parts of my body that I never though would be photographed for posterity. And they are pictures that I will definitely not be PhotoShopping for general distribution.

The tests all turned out well with two small exceptions which will be dealt with in due course - but nothing serious. It does appear that I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome which I have always thought of as a grumpy old man's disease but then again if the Syndrome fits! So we will see what that leads to - no more wine???? I think not!

For some reason yesterday just before I feel asleep under the blessings of liquid Valium I had a Law and Order: SVU hallucination. There I was on the doctor's table, on my side wearing a pair of hospital pants with a flap in the back, a type of gag in my mouth and oxygen tubes in my nostrils and suddenly the door opens and Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni jumped into the room guns drawn and he yelled POLICE FREEZE! Damn wouldn't you know it Chris Meloni shows up to rescue me from the mad doctor and I'm falling asleep.

Naturally- that's the way those good hallucinations always go..

Glad you're home and doing well sugar. Take it easy for a little while, OK?

Wow, that's better than most sights in the hospital! Glad you're home. IBS can be rotten (I was going to say 'a pain in the ass,' but I guess you knew that!). Here's hoping you find ways to manage it easily.

We hear about the state of Knucklehead's insides soon, and I'm hoping we'll have a good outcome too, and not have to be in hospitals anymore.

I'm very relieved to hear everything is working out so well. Take care of yourself, and just figure out the correct wine dosage.

Hope you're well enough for our Kev to come and wisk (whisk?) you away to an Italian villa on the coast belonging to none other than Lord Richard, with whom he worked in Sri Lanka and I worked in Darfur. Lord Richard gets around apparently :) Glad to hear you're feeling better. Bev

Glad you are doing okay, and I seriously doubt that that was your first Christopher Meloni dream. If I was having that dream, my feet would be in stirrups...

sageweb said...

So glad things are better except for the IBS...that's shitty. Hee hee
Oh I have had similar dreams but Mariska is my fantasy...

Well, I'm glad you're home and that the results were mostly good. IBS, blech, but it's manageable.

And hey, at least they took some nice photos for posterier's sake...

Sling said...

I'm so pleased that you are out of the hospital,and armed with the knowledge to help control your IBS!..
Now,what exactly was Mariska wearing in your dream?..just wonderin'.

SubtleKnife said...

Forget about her, tell us more about Chris!

Chris could be the one to tie me up! Such a hottie

Willym said...

To all of you: Thanks for the hopes, the wishes and the thoughts. They are more appreciated than you will ever know.

I had individual reponses all done up and then the stupid Google system gave me an error - that will teach me to do things in Word first - copy and paste!

Sling - Mariska was wearing her normal black sweater and leather coat... other enquiring minds Chris was wearing a smile!

Hey Billy,
Glad It's only IBS otherwise known as It's Bull Shit

Some of us have had it for years and never knew it.

I'm not opening my e-mail again for a long time.
You're sick, Jon' Aunt Olga passed March 1st and a very dear friend passed Feb.28
Sometimes it's better to out of touch.
Anyway as you know I really know what you have been through.

The good thing is you are home again and it's not too serious.

Love Vicki
