Yo ho ho

Dear Reader,

I admit it. I am a sorry ass feeling sorry for myself lump of sorriness.

Sorry.

The surgery went fine. The doctor was able to save most of his thigh. My dad reportedly said, "Yo ho ho," when he woke up this morning and then requested a parrot and an eye patch. It's, uh, probably because of the drugs that he is so cheerful, but probably also because he is out of pain for the first time in about two years.

Thank you again for all the lovely emails and comments and sweetness. I appreciate it a whole real lot and I promise I will try to not to be so dramatic and scary next time I am having an episode.

Love,

Nina

I am glad he is out of surgery and ok.

This is a lovely thing to read. I'll have something involving rum later, in his honor.

You don't scare me, and will you cut yourself some fucking slack already.

Thank you.

Oh, I should use this brand spanking shiny new ID.

Yipe no wait, I want it to say "Catherine", so never mind. I'm so vain this way.

Ever type a comment then hit enter too soon? Argh. Anyway, wanted to say that I'm glad your dad made it through the surgery OK, and even retained his sense of humor. Don't worry -- dramatic and scary reactions to dramatic and scary situations are normal. :)

I think you've done remarkably well. When anyone has a parent in pain, sick, whatever and the outcome is iffy, it's normal to freak a bit. I'm just glad your dad made it thru the surgery and is pain free!

this post made my night. i've been reading for a few weeks and your posts (even when they are dark) make me feel connected to life, in a good way.

Dearest Nina,

You are permitted to be dark and twisty and dramatic and scary and honest all you want.

He's out of pain for the first time in two years. Yo ho ho indeed.

Love,
jen

You be as dramatic as you want or need to be, which, by the way, I didn't think was too bad!
I am thrilled to know the surgery went well!

So glad your Dad is doing well Nina, and he's bang on with his fashion trends - the pirate look is all the rage these days!! :-)

Avast, ye lubbers! Batten the Cap'n's pillows and bring him his grog! Step lively, scalawags!

And as for YOU, Nina... if you can't have an episode with us, your best blog friends forever, then with whom can you have episodes?

Peace be with you, Nina.

No pain is a good, good thing. Glad it went well.
