I'm home!

Man it feels so much better to be out of the confines of the hospital. Waiting on the Urologist to call back for the exact time but the catheter comes out early next week (really it is the thing that is keeping me mostly bolted to a chair. TOO CREEPY FEELING!) My wife is taking a few days off to get the house all prepped for me. She had planned to do so over the weekend, but my early discharge took us all by surprise. In 10 days the staples come out. After that is is just learning to deal with this damn colostomy until things heal enough for everything to be reversed. Considering the rapidly advanced rate of my rebound I suspect it will be much faster than predicted.

As it is I've gone back to work, albeit on a light load. It doesn't take a lot of physical effort to administer the network and pick up the phones. I won't be running any cabling or moving equipment any time soon, but it's better than feeling like a total invalid.

I'll post over in tech about what I learned about having a streaming video service at hand while laid up in the hospital.

Afterthought: Supposedly I am supposed to be just getting out of bed at this point, not be discharged.

I think I am going home today edit: I AM going home today.

Doctors are baffled at my rate of progress. Supposedly I am not supposed to be out of bed yet. I would have rather had this urinary catheter out before but they won't keep me until next week just for that. So long as I have a reasonable supply of pain meds (they cut through my abdominal wall and it hurts like hell to clear my throat) I should be fine.

I am tired of sleeping in a chair. Home will be good for my recovery.

can someone explain to me the difference between butter and whipped cream?

My current hospital diet has me up to white toast. Well yesterday they brought it to me with grape jelly, which I despise.I asked for butter which they denied, which they claim is due to fat. I'd buy that if they hadn't also brought me a bowl of jello smothered in whipped cream and a glass of whole milk. They almost implied that fat and oil are somehow added to butter in the manufacturing process. Does nobody know how foods are made today>

No. No I do not trust our intelligence agencies

Ever since the days of Wild Bill Donovan they have been a power unto themselves, with no real responsibility to the American People, or with any real oversight whatsoever, despite what any laws or regulations say.

They have their own agenda and it has little to do with anything other than their own power and control. There was a time when the political Left warned about this, and rightfully so. Those days are long gone. Now they are in an unholy marriage with the Establishment Powers That Be, along with the career Right and every other multi-generational political family mover and shaker. Kennedy, Clinton, Bush, etc. There is no difference, and if you believe there is, you are completely under their sway.

Well I am out and alive...

4 hours on the table. I will see her today nt I was apparently a complete mess inside. Multiple fistulas, involvement with both m bladder and intestine. Portions of both had to go. I'm on some really good drugs right now, so I'm not in any really bad pain.

Bye for a bit

I am being admitted to the hospital for emergency surgery for this damn diverticulitis. The surgeon is telling me it is the worst she has ever seen. My colon is fused to my bladder so extensive reconstruction is required. I will have a temporary colostomy for 3 to 6 months. The next time I post will be from the hospital. Wish me luck.

Now THIS is a mower!

What did Honda’s super-fast Mean Mower need? More power, of course.

The Japanese manufacturer, also known for its cars, jets, motorcycles and marine engines, wants to reclaim its title for making the fastest lawn mower in the world. The original Mean Mower could hit 130 mph and set a Guinness Book record at 116.575 mph in 2014. The current record-holder, a modified Viking mower made by a Norwegian group, hit a top speed of 134 mph a year later.

Honda’s U.K. division and Team Dynamics are working on Mean Mower V2 and targeting a top speed of 150 mph. The new riding mower, a modified Honda HF 2622 lawn tractor, will have almost double the power of the original Mean Mower, using a 999cc four-cylinder motorcycle engine that generates more than 190 horsepower at 13,000 rpm.

And yes, the Mean Mower will still cut grass. The previous model was able to mow the lawn at speeds up to about 15 mph. Mean Mower V2 will sport carbon-fiber blades powered by electric motors.

Now this is funny: Trump has copy of Elton John's Rocket Man for Kim Jong Un

President Donald Trump says he a procured a copy of the Elton John hit 'Rocket Man' for Kim Jong-un after the North Korean dictator told him in Singapore that he was not familiar with the song.

Trump on Tuesday confirmed a report that said he planned to gift a CD containing the 1972 track to Kim but the exchange had not happened yet.

'They didn't give it. I have it for him. They didn't give it, but it will be given at a certain time,' he said. 'I actually do have a little gift for him, but you'll find out what that gift is when I give it.'

South Korean news publication The Chosun Ilbo reported on Trump's intention to give Kim a signed copy of the famous Elton John album Honky Chateau after a conversation about the 'Rocket Man' track during last month's summit in Singapore.
