Thursday, June 5

As Walter Winchell used to say, "Good evening, Mr. and Mrs. America, and all the ships at sea." I just spoke with Karen and her leg is still puffy from the clot, so it doesn't look like she'll be discharged anytime soon. She says she's enjoying her stay at the McKay Dee "Hilton" (hospital) and that the food and room service is simply mah-vellous (yeah, right!). Actually, she's getting a little ornery being cooped up without her 'pooter. In that regard, she wants to again thank everyone who left "get well" wishes on her blog and who sent her an email (she'll read 'em all as soon as she gets home). She is catching up on her crocheting (spelling?) -- she finished one doily in two days, where it would normally take her 2 weeks. On the plus side, she doesn't have to wear one of them johnnies -- she can at least wear her own comfy PJ's. More to follow tomorrow.... Colin
