D&L Update…

Neighbor L is going through horse withdrawal. It’s been a week now since they went away and she says she’s down to checking on them through the windows no more than six or eight times a day now. And they’re never there, and you can imagine…

D is still stuck in a rehap center in the city far away. His most recent travail is an infection in his hip surgery, which a week ago was a big thing but which may be under control now. I spoke with him briefly on the phone this morning and he sounded much better. There’s hope that they might get him to a medical center closer to home in the next few days – but that has been promised before. All I can say is that he sounded strong when I talked to him. I’m still waiting to find out how this will really work out.

    I know three people with hip surgeries, and two with ankle and/or knee replacements, and they all suffered major infections afterwards. I have to wonder just how far down hospital standards and practices have fallen.

    Best wishes to Neighbor D. It can’t be fun.

    I can understand what Neighbour L is going through. We lost our four legged friend back in September, and I’m still looking for here in the places she once was.

    As for Neighbour D, I wish him the best of luck because hip injuries in the elderly aren’t a good thing. Regarding his infection, hospitals are a breeding ground for crap, so this isn’t a surprise. On the plus side, if you are going to get an infection, the best place for it is in a hospital where it can be treated ASAP.

    My continued prayers for Neighbor D’s healing and coming back to The Gulch neighborhood.

To the stake with the heretic!
