Interesting thing: We were eating dinner at the Air Force Memorial (boxed sandwiches, of course) when another Honor Flight pulled up in their buses.

They asked where we were from. The answer was Quincy, Illinois. They were from the Quad Cities (Moline, East Moline, Rock Island, Illinois and Davenport, Iowa), about 150 miles upstream from Quincy. Both parties sort of freaked out at the coincidence.

I am glad you were able to participate in this Honor Flight. Rhode Island has an Honor Flight program and I went to a presentation about it last year. Until then I was unfamiliar with the program; now I can say I "know" someone who has participated in his home state's program.

It is, and she is "feeling the burn" because she's overdoing (as usual). I'll be back tomorrow in time for supper.

Oh, yeah -- healing. Here are some photos from the Honor Flight I was on. All but one person from the same National Guard unit that was called up in 1968 and served (except for me) in Vietnam. The one person who wasn't part of the call-up was a US Navy veteran who is the father of one of the guys who WAS called up. This trip WAS healing for more that a few of the guys. Said one to me, "When we got back and got off the buses they immediately had a big parade for us. But ya know, not one of us wanted to march in a parade and listen to politicians make speeches. We wanted to see our wives and families and have a cold beer. Those speeches were an awful thing to do. It hurt! And all they said was how great they were for sending us, like the governor and all had a choice."

Me, I got there late and didn't get in on the parade. I got to sit in the Seatac airport overnight, vets from Korea and Vietnam on one side of the aisle and Woodstock returnees on the other glaring at each other and the cops walking around every fifteen minutes or so making sure that nobody did anything regrettable...the vets wouldn't start anything, they were tired of fighting, and the Woodstock folks were afraid of the kill-crazy, baby-burning, drug-crazed, extremely tired veterans. So we got along pretty well.

Mom just out of surgery and the procedure apparently went quite smoothly.

The riskiest part of many surgeries, especially for the elderly, is the anesthesia. Normally it may not be a good idea for a doctor to treat his own family, but in this case we were all very happy that my nephew was able to pull a few strings and schedule himself as the anesthesiologist. She had her own earth angel lterally watching over her and the surgeon in the OR.

Now comes the hard part. The healing and rehab. She is up for it. She really had to fight the ortho to get him to do the surgery because of her age. He just couldn't seem to get that the pain of rehab for a few months, compared to possibly 10-15 years (we are a long-lived family for the most part) of inability to move her shoulder and upper arm without excruciating pain is well worth it.   

As always, my sister Annie is up there and will stay as long as necessary. She never says all the caregiving she has done for Mom, Dad, and me is burdensome or expresses any resentment that I am not more available. I'll go up as I can on weekends and according to whatever schedule works best for her, but she lives 8 hours from Mom's so unless she flies home, my weekends up don't give her a chance to go home. But may give her a chance to head out on a weekend to hit an old time stringband festival.

She is another Earth Angel.

Glad for the good news, and wishing Pat a speedy recovery from major surgery. Hope your trip was a good one.

Update from my last whiny post. Doing well. Now walk with a two legged limp instead of a three legged limp. Throughout the rehab process, progress has not been gradual, it has been in distinct steps - like another switch gets flipped. Just as I get discouraged, suddenly, I can manage something that I could not manage before. Wish I could somehow bookmark this post to come back to as a reminder when I feel discouraged.

I hope to retire in November. My realistic goal is to be nearly back to where I was pre-fall by then, and once I have only the private practice hours, to be motivated enough and have the time to devote to recovering to where I reach a place that I will be physically stronger and more capable than I was even before the accident.

Mom is undergoing complete shoulder replacement surgery on Tuesday. She and we all agree that it is a good option, even though she is 87. Sharp as a tack and otherwise in respectable health for her age. Not worried, but always concerned and good thoughts for her well being always welcomed.

She ordered me out of the house. From the 18th to the 24th. "Out!" said she. "Go to Illinois and give them my best! And be on that Honor Flight!

And I do what women tell me, 'cause it's easier that way.

A friend is coming to stay with her while I'm gone -- arrives tomorrow, in fact. (My brother bowed out of the Flight.)

Thanks for asking, Maeve. I am smarting, to be honest, and it makes me unhappy to consider that truthfully there are people who are far worse off than I feel just now. Grateful, though, for Mudcat and the members in it. And hoping that the first week at home, post-surgery, has been an encouraging one for Rapparee and spouse: Keep on keeping on there.

If Wysiwyg were able, I reckon she would be adding frequent posts to this thread. I don't really know her but I can see from previous threads that she has been through the mangle, and then some. So I am sending supportive comforting thoughts along to Wysiwyg and her extended household/family.

We got the path report and saw the surgeon today. Pat has to go back in a couple of weeks.

The report said that there was no indication of any of the cancerous cells had metastasized, and that's VERY good news.

Still, she's weak and recovering from a very major surgery. She has told me to go out of town for a doings back in Illinois next week, and I must obey. However, a good friend is coming to stay with her from the 16th to the 26th -- I'll be gone from the 18th to the 24th. If the path report or the doctor hadn't been so upbeat I wouldn't be leaving regardless of my orders.
