Wow, note to self: never attend NoVa-HH.

Hope you heal up over the Holidays, Dave.

The appendectomy is nothing compared to the joy and excitement of waking up with a catheter.
Hope you're starting to feel better; been there! Next time- you're at the end of the table...

Jeff- and all-

I think it is safe to attend. What are the chances of this happening twice!

Yeah I got the royal treatment . Tubes stickin in and out everywhere and all dat.

Top 10 Reasons why Sibley Hospital is better than Killroys:

10. Open 24 hours
9. Call button for someone to come wait on you
8. Person actually waits on you and is a nice (maybe even cute) nurse instead of a sorority dropout hick that can't read.
7. All- over no smoking section (sorry Rick)
6. Less crowded- you get a whole room not just a seat at a table.
5. Closer to Dave's place
4. Food is delivered right to your bloodstream via I.V. Drip- no concerns about bad tasting food or missing central ingredients.
3. Cable TV where you control the channels and volume
2. Brain dead types are in a whole different wing.

And the number 1 reason....





Dilaudid. The true lo-cal buzz!
(And served through cleaner lines then Kilroys draughts. Man that stuff is always a little off)

Pussy, grumpy Bill would have toughed it out, then passed it and then kept it in a jar on the shelf.




Glad your ok.

Get well, man. You were trying to be so patient with the waitress when I'd have probably been an ass. No good deed goes unpunished! Hope they spring you soon, although the TLC sounds pretty good.

Cheers!

I've worked in restaurants. I know better than to be an ass to the people handling my food and drink. Trust me it is not a good idea. Unless everything is out and you are just going to get the check and never come back...

Jeff, see the diagram in my first pic? A=appendix= dead end. Mine got blocked by something and then got all nasty and popped.

Did it actually rupture? That goes from extremely painful to deadly. I'm all for joking around, but damn, I'm glad your OK.
