I went to the DMV to get a learners permit this morning. That was the first annoyance: that although my UK license is perfectly OK for driving in the US (as long as I’m not a resident), it is not suff

My new cowboy boots hurt my feet. I know I have to go through a breaking-in phase, but in the meantime my left pinky toe is cursing at me non-stop.

My nasty cold has been diagnosed as pneumonia...heavy dose of antibiotics prescribed. Lousy day in the 9household..$700 vet bill..and counting for 1 of the cats.


Nothing compared to Bruce. Best wishes to you and hope all goes well.

Lung transplant.

Oh, Bruce, I hope you recover quickly, and that you're not in too much pain.

I feel good just short of breath, very short of breath. May move to SF for a week for some tests, then back here. It's up to the doctors. :rolleyes:

Wow! Do they just harvest someone else's lung and give it to you, or do they clean it up/out first?


[This isn't one of those stories where you ended up hungover in a bathtub full of ice in Vegas, is it?]


Here's hoping you're better than new when it's all said and done.

Oh my, oh my. Bruce, I just hope you don't get taken over by the spirit of some 19-year-old, motorcycle-riding, hot-headed, non-helmet-wearing, young whippersnapper whose lung you get. :blush:




Otoh, maybe I do. :rolleyes: Best of luck whatever happens.



Fly: you were checked out by a doctor, right? RIGHT?????? :)



And finally: 9lives, at least you're taking care of it. The worst part of pneumonia for me was not being able to go to my restaurant job for about 2 weeks.



Get well soon, all of you!!!!

Looks like the first week of January was marked by some rough water.


I spent 14 hours in a hospital emergency room under the mistaken impression that my heart was attacking me again.


The true annoyance was sitting there in a little cubical for about thirteen hours while nothing whatsoever happened. No electrocardiogram, no ex-rays, no blood-letting, no encouraging words from attendants nor physicians.


One tech brought me a hunting magazine to read. And of course there was my friend anxiety, playing the taws on my soul like a berserk timpanist.


Boredom punctuated by surges of spectacular angina is not my dish of tea. I could have been at the Burger King, stocking up on cholesterol.

My illness is really just an annoyance. I've had it before and the antibiotics should get me good as new pretty quickly.


Thanks for the good thoughts.


Bruce's situation is far more than an annoyance...serious stuff.. and Bruce, you're in my thoughts and prayers.
