Some of you may already know this, but for you newbies you should know that I have a strong, adverse, irrational and

So Mom got her bandages removed today. The nurse arrived at lunch time before I had a chance to eat. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I was helping her get Mom undressed etc and I really wanted to know for myself that the incision was healing properly. (Yeah, I know - What was I thinking...?) So the first corner of the bandage was peeled back.......and that's when I saw it......a thread sticking out! GAW....UGH.....OMG
I practically got whiplash turning my head, the stomach flipped a little and my legs turned to over-cooked spaghetti. (See - overly dramatic but its true) I had to leave the room. So I relied on the nurse's opinion that it was indeed healing well, and then I asked her (OK, begged really) if she would please apply another bandage. Whew!! It's covered again. I think it's safe to say that this part of the process was much harder on me than on Mom :)
So after that point lunch was completely out of the question but on my way back to work I did buy these to try and forget......
Now on to a quick Oscar recap. I don't know if you watched but if you missed it - you didn't miss much in my opinion. The intro of Christopher Plummer with the Captian VonTrapp bit was funny and the ensemble performance by the cast of Les Mis was fabulous. The best part was the music they played when the winners droned on too long with their speeches - the theme from JAWS. That was hysterical.
The bit with Captain Kirk was just stupid. I managed to watch until around 11pm and then had enough. I did miss the big fall! Dang it. We always wait for someone to fall up the stairs and it finally happened and I missed it. I did feel bad that it was Jennifer Lawrence though. Too bad it hadn't been the dude who accepted his Oscar in a kilt. Now that would have been a memorable moment. FLASH! Lol
