SilverDragon66: Hmmmm - experimental cooking
Stir fry chicken is currently marinading in honey, soy, and beer. What could possibly go wrong?
SilverDragon66: Hard parmesan 1 - index knuckle 0. At the medical centre getting my knuckle stitched back up...
lisajane31: Thank you for being a true friend, for wanting to listen to my issues and worrying about me. I really do value your friendship.
SilverDragon66: So now it is done - held the wake for my dad. We initially thought we'd find maybe 20 people, ended up with over 100 people coming to 'see him off'. It went well, my kids behaves like perfection - I saw a new side to my 11yo girl.
Now it is time to sit down at home and get my drink on...
SilverDragon66: Well, the registrar finally finally agreed to palliative care for dad, which means he's been prescribed "severe pain medication". Basically enough morphine for him to be calm and drift off peacefully.
For those of you inclined, prayers of a calm passing. For the rest of us, I appreciate the positive vibes.
SilverDragon66: okay - Update
Dad has made it through the day and looks like he'll be better soon. Still not out of the woods, but definitely better
Thank you to all of you who expressed your thoughts, support, and prayers.
SilverDragon66: In case anyone wonders, I'm currently sitting in a hospital ICU waiting for my father to decide if he's going to fight or give in. I'll be happy for him either way
SilverDragon66: I don't normally post much up in here, but I have to say thank you to those of you who have kept me sane this latter half of the year.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, kwanza, or solstice of your choice. you folks have been a life line at times.
