Just wrote a long post and lost it. Damn computer. Oh well...suffice to say that Ernie will be celebrating Eileen's birthday on May 9 by having surgery. The surgeon thinks the hernia may be a result of his prostatectomy incision and there is the chance he'll end up with a question-mark shaped scar. I kind of liked that part. He won't be able to lift anything heavy for awhile after the surgery of course----which will include my mother's wheelchair. Should be interesting.
I visited my father after work and it was pretty tough. He was in bed and I couldn't get him to respond at all. He opened his eyes a couple of times but didn't seem to see me.
I got home and cried and cried. Then I made Ernie play some of my favorite Ian Hunter songs. He protested, saying that they would make me cry. I assured him they wouldn't and then cried all the way through them. Oh well, at least the boys were outside playing.
Got two cards yesterday---from my friend Gisela and from our dear friends Jim and Diana. Thanks guys....those kind thoughts really do help.
