    Husband had surgery last week (kidney stones) and then again this week. It was outpatient. The first time he had his surgery the nurses treated me as though I were a child. Like, maybe I was his "wittle" girlfriend. I waited in the waiting room for hours. I watched the dr or a nurse come out and speak to everyone in the waiting room. They looked at me but they walked past. Finally they took me back and they did not give me the take-home instructions, I was in the room but they spoke to him and ignored me. Uh... he's drugged dumb butt... When we got home he was telling me how he begged them for pain killers but they just kept walking by until he finally puked all over the place.

    When we went in yesterday I told the nurse that it was a miserable experience and I did not appreciate being treated as though I don't have any importance. It's MY spouse. She was like, oh... haha... you just look so young, we had no idea. I said, I'm the same age as him and I'm his wife. I complained about everything. I made them change the anesthesia, I made them send the dr out to me as soon as he was done, I made them take me back right when he woke up so I could wave them down to get his drugs, I made them send him home on a drug so I didn't have to listen to him complain about my poor driving skills. I was like super beyotch! But it was a much better experience...

    Tell me I look to young to be respected. HMPH.
    I would take it as a compliment lol
    We were all sitting around at the barn one day and I mentioned my daughter and 3 or 4 people looked at me and said "YOU have a daughter?" I said yep. They asked my how old, you should have seen their faces when I said 22 LMAO Boy I sure felt great!

    Farmpony, I hear you! It's a compliment that you look young but honestly - did they do surgery on your hubby and not know who/where the family was?!!!??? That is a huge safety issue. So, they knew his wife was there and they didn't ask for you the first time. Their mistake.

    I have a lot of regard and respect for our medical professionals and their training, but over the past 4 years I have had a lot of experience with taking my hubby every 3-4 months for a procedure where he's either sedated or anesthetized. I now basically am glued to his side except when he's going to the OR. There have been so many times where things could have gone wrong, or where they went better because I was there and informed. I never assume that they remember what I tell them; I never assume that he remembers what they tell him; and I make myself a pest if I don't understand what's going on. It drives my husband nuts but the medical folks don't mind. (The office folks sometimes do mind ). At our last visit, his doctor was new and wanted the history of what's been going on. My husband said that I was out in the waiting room and would be happy to answer questions. They called me in, we had the conversation, and the doctor later said that my husband was a lucky, lucky man; that everybody should have someone like that, and "She's a keeper!" Hang in there!

    Stan, loved the joke!

    Grace, glad to hear that you and Kes are progressing. I so appreciate your updates!

    Hunter, your menu sounds delicious!

    Minskinnywin, welcome!

    Sailors used to have a tattoo of a hula girl on their stomachs and then ripple their stomach muscles.

    Stella What a horse I am beginning to think she gets something wrong with her just as the riding season gets into full swing. Whan I first got her she caught a form of a equine flue, that left her turned out for three months. However that did not get her out of work. And through the following winter we rode, well to be honest, I held on while Stella taught me she has a mind of her own and very capable of using it. But we progressed.

    You folks in the northern part of this planet will be pleased to know it does not SNOW where I live so all year riding. The next year she developed the skin issue and it effected her girth area so NO riding again, but that worked out as I had a heart attack, which ment another three months of no riding, so again we did not get to go on any major treks but I made her go for walks. Its not uncommon in Dargavile to see folks walking their horses around the town. Beats walking the dog, at least if you get tired, jump on and ride home. We have a young lady who traines horses the Perelli way and I guess walking the horses in a built up area is part of the training, mind you she is off the road by 0830am. Pit stops where there are roses growing leave a deposit and one happy gardener. I digressed.

    Back to my horse. At about the time my heart had mended so had Stella and just in time for a two day trek over country that required a high level of fitness. Before this trek stella and I had a few rides, and arguments over who was really in charge. I did not want the stress, so I climbed of and walked her home on more than one ocassion, continuing with the lesson as we walked and she listened intently.

    Come the trek, a big day for me I had just recovered and then into a very stressfull time for me let alone Stella. I had spent considerable time teaching her the one rein stop and where her safe place was, which also gave me a safe place. The treck started and off we went, Stella with head held high, very high, tail going from side to side and now and again slapping me (and I had not done anything wrong) She anounced to all the other horses and riders we had arrived. She looked great, but had attitude, which subsided and she settled into walking and listening. I had the best easest ride I have ever had from her. The horse I origionally brought was back.

    I had two great days except for when the top dressing plane went over head only a hundred feet up. She decided she was going to show us all she could out run the plane, **** near did. Bloody long walk to get her back.

    The two days of the trek were spent with me in the saddle and then walking her, well I needed the exercise as well. But I had my horse back, and that gave me the biggest lift and at the right time. She even got tangled in wire and stood perfectly still while I got underneith and unraveled it from her hind legs. When walking she was as calm as. Not sure if it was Stella being tired or being considerate.

    Went out this morning gave the two horses some hay, hard feed and checked out her skin. Stella is still healing up front and shedding at the rear and sensitive to touch. So its a walk only.

    That grey ***** is still hanging around. Getting tamer, I can pat it, but not pick it up. This morning it was on the bed again attacking any thing that moved. The only thing left for me to do so I could get some piece was to feed it.

    It looks like it has decided to stay, so now I'll have to get it fixed, don't want any more strays moving in. I have unloaded the shotgun.

    Cheers all
    Off to take she who must be obeyed to the Whangarei country music club, she is backing one of our more well known entertainers, then back and walk Stella.

    Stan aka token.

    As always the spelling mistakes belong to me and I take a dim view of those that copy.

    Just askin', but Stan, is the grey & white a female kitty?

    That is a very funny story, at least for us gals.

    Hope Stella continues to leave her skin condition behind.

    Yep, more expence. Vet fees.

    I think Stella will continue to improve. I'm probably going to need considerable exercise to get my fitness up for riding let alone hers, it's been a while.

    The thread is a little quiet whats up folks

    Good morning to all. Fairly quiet W/E. Didn't ride-life infringed. The aches & pains of getting older are also coming more often. Dreading the coming cold weather-this house is not very well insulated. Hope to see more postings-this is one of the best threads here!
