Shit Happens

Please let me apologize for not blogging for a bit.  I did intend a few days away after the AtoZ, but admittedly, it got a little out of hand.

My reasons are simple.  I was not anywhere I could access the internet on anything but my mobile phone.  I am not going to even try to do a blog from a mobile.  Its too complicated and would be full of errors- not that my posts are always letter perfect, I'll be the first to admit that, but I would spend more time correcting the post than actually writing it.

You see, I was in hospital.

No nothing too serious.  Just cellulitis- a really nasty rapid spreading skin infection that causes pussy blisters and swelling.  The treatment consists of 4 IV doses of flucloxacillin day over several days- a powerful antibiotic, that, when taken through an IV, burns my veins to crap, causing swelling and pain.

Immediately  upon my release, I had to take The Wife to hospital for scheduled surgery.

Even both of my cars have been sick.  My commodore for 4 new tyres and my Honda for a fuel pump- we're still waiting on the results of that by the way.

The Wife gets home yesterday but is readmitted today because of a post op infection.

And I've temporarily turned into a chain smoking grumpy man- as opposed to being merely grumpy.  I can't even get drunk because that will render the antibiotics I am orally taking ineffective.

So what's a man to do when his starts spinning out of control?

Be there for his wife, and when there's time- light another cigarette.  Because next week should be better, right?


  1. It can't be much worse than that! It will pass...if you can keep your germs away from your wife!

    1. That'll be difficult. She beautiful and its hard for me to stay away.

  2. Yes, next week will be better. Probably because you should be off those antibiotics and able to drink once again if for no other reason.

    Life is full of ups and downs, damnit.

    Hope things improve soon.

    1. Thanks, Boomer. Next week I'll definitely raise a glass to that.

  3. Your problems put mine into perpective and I hope all goes well in the future.
    Both of you take care.


    1. Thanks Yvonne. I appreciate the sentiment.
