The view from my perch on the mountain

You are not forgotten

Sorry I haven’t been around to make y’all shake your heads and ask yourselves why I haven’t been institutionalized yet…….and NO, that’s not why I haven’t been online much recently.

THE BOSS has had some medical issues that have been occupying what little is left of my mind. I haven’t even picked up a camera in several days.

She is being treated by several very competent medical professionals is okay, at home and at the moment well sedated. Her preliminary prognoses are very favorable and she’ll get a better handle on her condition tomorrow when she sees one of the specialists she’s been referred to and gets the lab results.

Now, while she’s still unconscious I’ll go check the straps on her straight jacket and the padlocks on the chains. You’d think she’d behave herself, especially after I cut the handle off her broom, effectively grounding her but NO-O-O-O!

Did I mention that the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee are just moving in to combine with a low pressure system that arrived in our area last night? The weather guess says heavy rain, 4 to 8 inches, through Thursday followed by scattered thunderstorms through the weekend. I’ll go absolutely stir crazy! If you already think I’m as screwy as a soup sammich you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

    THE BOSS had a follow up with the oncologist this morning. Lab results showed the tumor removed during the surgery was malignant but he’s confident they got it all. After all the time I spent on the beach and working shirtless over the years I figured that if anyone was going to develop melanomas it would be me but I have a dark complexion while Frankie is fair. Thank God she changed primary care physicians and found one who does thorough exams.

  4. I am so glad that you have good news in so far as they are confident they got it all. What a nightmare to find yourselves in. I had been wondering what had happened to you. It was only last night that I figured I must check my settings and ensure I was not unwittingly not subscribed to your blog or something and so not gettting updates.. Actually this only showed up via email not on the reader but it wasn’t just you 🙂 My very best, and heartfelt best wishes for Frankie. I sincerely hope she makes a speedy and full recovery, and is very soon back on her feet cast iron skillet in hand, all set and ready for Whacka whacka whacka, bangy bangy bangy on your headbone!!! Biggest of furry Wolfie hugs 🙂
