This, That and The Other Thing - By Lee and Phod

Life has been a bit sucky in our part of the world. See our Big Guy (aka the Lady's Dad) survived an aneurysm on Halloween. He remains in ICU and is doing "ok" - the medical team is happy with the progress. He will likely be there for weeks. Lady is still at home with us, but will go down to see him in a week or two. No one wants her there too early as a nurse or caring and sympathetic person she is not.

The Big Guy and Grammie's dog Tendra is staying with wonderful family friends. She is probably being completely spoiled! Grammie and the Big Guy don't have to worry about her.

Needless to say, this news has shaken our house up a bit. Lady hasn't been as good at visiting blogs because at times she has been a space cadet she  has been thinking about other things and doing other things. We know you will understand and forgive her.

If you have a little POTP to send the Big Guy, we would really appreciate it.

What we shouldn't forgive her for is the fact she didn't take one picture of us this week. Not one. That is a Lady fail.

In other news:

Today is the last day to get on the Christmas Card List. If you have not done so email us at leeandphodATbellDOTnet. Lady will be putting the finishing touches on it soon so it is ready to go out next Saturday!

All residents of Blogville - if you have blogged in the last 3 months, you are eligible to vote in the upcoming election. The voting will take place here on Tuesday. Polls will be open from 12:01 am EST time to midnight. Be sure to come back on Tuesday to vote. More details will be on that post.




We are taking tomorrow off (we hope to do some catch up visiting as Lady is helping her office move and working today), but will be back Monday.

Have a good weekend and be healthy!

  6. An aneurysm? Where (brain, chest... they can happen anywhere)? I think you're right, it will take some time regardless of where it was. My prayers and good thoughts for you, the Big Guy, and the pups.

  7. We appreciate your sacrifice to be the election judge when there is a medical emergency within the family. Maybe it will keep the Lady's mind occupied. Since we will be out of town, good luck!

    Your Pals,

  12. So sorry to read about the Big Guy's illness. All fingers and paws crossed here that he continues to do well in the hospital, and is receiving the very best of care. Gail knows all about how difficult it is living at a distance from elderly parents and managing work, dogs and other responsibilities as well as trying to be the caring daughter (when that particular nursing role perhaps does not come naturally).
    Sending love and hugs to all of you,
    Bertie and Gail.

  21. Mom and I said a prayer for the Big Guy. He will take his time healing and then he will be fine and dandy. We also said prayers for Grammie and Tendra to be strong and brave and for the doctors and nurses to be wise and compassionate. Hang in there and cut the Lady some slack. She's doing her very best. (even still maybe she could've take one little measly picture.... Just sayin'.)

    Love and licks,
