I’m GoingTo Live; I’m Going To Live

Doc says, “Paul, I got some bad news for you. You’ve got six months to live.”
I say, “Six months? Doc, I can’t pay your bill in six months. I can’t do it!”
Doc says, “OK, I give you a year…”

It turned out OK, although the early part midnight to 8:45 AM was a bust!

All night I sat in the chair, could not sleep, and worked on this website. Thanksgiving website is now ready to receive this year’s updates! By  8:00 AM, I was so pissed that I called the doctors office and yelled at the poor operator (I called back and apologized later).  I told him that if a doctor didn’t call me back in 30 minutes, he would need a doctor himself.

A new doctor from Seal Beach called, a doctor which Sue and I knew and liked.  I left Sue sleeping at 8:40 Am and toddled down there.  The office received me IMMEDIATELY and from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM is was theirs!  Bad infection probably COPD related, so I got a severe dose of steroids, a potent anti-biotics, are more codeine!

I took a breathing treatment, and the machine is called a nebulizer. I was the male assistant if I was not transparent after the procedure, I guess I cracked him up!

To the pharmacy, the old Silver Ghost fled, making a quick stop at CVS and then on to In-And-Out for a double burger!  My belly was hurting so much, I figured, why not?

Returning home, I made brunch for Sue and crashed, getting almost two hours of mandatory sleep; it was so welcomed!

After getting up, the Topper’s Newsletter and I did the “dance of the mailings,” a monthly event for the past eleven years!  By 4:00 PM, they were ready to go, and off we went again.  I was feeling much better than yesterday but not out of the woods yet!

We watched three movies, all Hallmark-like, so they were just our type.  The first was about a male nanny and the other our first Christmas movie of the year.

Ally is a smart young career woman who needs a new job. Samantha is a busy Beverly Hills advertising executive/mom whose too-well-mannered kids need some fun in their lives.

The second was using a detective to solve some robberies from inside, and the detective became a nanny,

A series of burglaries plague an upscale, gated community, handsome detective Mike Logan (Cameron Mathison) goes undercover as a nanny, infiltrating the neighborhood and investigating the crimes. When the Bannermans, a high maintenance family in need of domestic assistance, hire Mike as their nanny, he forms an unlikely bond with the Bannerman children (Valin Shinyei and Jena Skodje). He develops a crush on Jessie (Sarah Lancaster), a beautiful nanny who works nearby.

The third was a play on Cinderella and an excellent recreation in modern times.

Routinely exploited by her wicked stepmother, the downtrodden Sam Montgomery is excited about the prospect of meeting her Internet beau at the school’s Halloween dance.

We waited, with bated breath, for 8:00 PM to arrive so I can get another “medication hit” from those delightful little plastic bottles of chemistry.

We had the tookies, and it is 11:00 PM, and we headed for bed.  I stopped in the office for a few minutes to cool down and then a night’s sleep, hopefully, after four days of staying up all night!
