    Yep, Blooie, the prankster got me too! I couldn't see a hummingbird either!

    ps. He is a cute little grasshopper. [​IMG] Our grasshoppers had to swim today. [​IMG]

    He wasn't that little, believe me! He was about as long as my pinky. Oh, wait, you've never seen my pinky so that doesn't help you much, does it? Anyway, here's the first shot of him before he turned. I named him "Phred."

    Good morning Rachel and Team!

    Confession time...I had ice cream last night too. Talk about the power of suggestion, lol. At least for today, please, don't anyone talk about ice cream, cake, cookies, chocolate, pies, doughnuts, cream puffs, danishes, cinnamon rolls or anything else I can't turn down...I can't take this kind of pressure!

    Sleep, blessed sleep!!!!! Once they got a new cath in, with a continuous irrigation, lots of Dilaudid and a he eating pad to the belly, I slept about 10 hours straight. Thank you Lord! Still having issues managing spasms when I move or sit up, but things are going to get better now. Really staying on the pain meds and plan to do some serious catching up on the sleep. I'm not on my usual floor, they had to overflow me to a general surgical unit but I've already had my amazing nurse Annie come check on me and she's working on getting me moved asap.

    Blooie, my Honey posted pics of my flowers blooming today, it's 75 degrees he says. I'll see if I can get them here tomorrow, running out of brain power tonight.

    Wow! What a difference 24 hours made for you, and I'm so glad! You know what they say about pain meds - take 'em when they're due. Staying ahead of the pain is so much better than trying to stop it once it takes hold. Tell Annie we are grateful that she's been so good to you.

    Looking forward to those pictures.


    Tell me when you all get sick of hummingbird pictures....I've got all kinds of critters I've taken pictures of the last couple of years. There's moose, and deer, and chipmunks, and sage grouse, and the two tom turkeys dancing in the parking lot at a MacDonalds in Sheridan, Wyoming. [​IMG]
