Second: Catching Up.

Do you have any freakin' idea how many words you people have written while I've been out of touch? Well, let me tell you. Catching up is going to be an utterly Sisyphean task. (Note that I haven't had any pain meds in about 7 hours. I'll give it a shot, but no promises.)

Also, a note about upcoming posts.

I will post some warnings about when T.M.I. is going to come into play. (Yeah, I know there's no such thing for J.T.S., but the rest of you have standards). Anyway, it'll mostly be pretty mild, but there's one story that just can't be told without more than I'd usually say. You'll be warned.

Pus, right? This is going to involve pus. There's no way you went from an upset stomach to being on Perocet and Morphine for days on end without there being pus involved. ::uuuuuuugggghh:: I hate pus.

Nathan said...

Oddly enough, Jeff, there's no pus involved at all.

I'll write some in if you like. (Note to everyone. if the next story includes writing that is italicized and in blue and involves pus...it's all there just for Jeff's edification.)

Jeri said...

Give us the most important update - are you still in the hospital, or are you home? And where can we send bottles of booze disguised as floral arrangements? 'Cause that'll go well with the Percocet. ;)

Tania said...

I would totally be up for sending booze cleverly masquerading as floral arrangments. I want Nathan to be up and enjoying his morning Bloody Mary and being harassed by the cats for 4 AM feedings.

Jim Wright said...

Personally, I'm more likely to send Nathan a floral arrangement and drink the booze. Just saying.

Especially if he's going to start talking about pus...

Nathan said...

1. In the hospital.

2. Bloody Marys are right off the menu for the foreseeable future.

You have a down your throat, right? I hate the tube down your throat.

I don't hate it if the tube is down Nathan's throat. I hate it if it is down mine. Just saying.

neurondoc said...

Can I make some guesses?

Tania said...

I think you should. I'm guessing not Peyronie's disease. And not PCOS. Everything else is fair game.

Nathan said...

Tania,


It's lucky for you that you're in Jim's vicinity. Now go put on the pointy hat and keep him company in the corner.

Yeesh!

Nathan said...

Natalie,

You can make guesses, but the next post will start to have clues. You may want to wait.
To eliminate any more of Tania's misbehavior, I will say that my problem is completely internal (and it's not about any internal's trying to get external.)(well, at least not any of the stuff that supposed to stay inside.)

Schistosomiasis!

Plague!

Legionnaires disease!

Athlete's Foot!

No, wait. Can't be that last one.

Jim Wright said...

Intestinal parasites. That's my guess. Big weird ones. From South America. Very Rare. Not deadly, but you'll wish they were. Egg layers. Apparently transported to the US from Mexico in a shipment of stoves...

vince said...

I think it had something to with "Revenge of the Stinky Tofu!"

Jim Wright said...

It's not a tuuuumah!


Nathan has apparently succumbed to the Demerol again. Somebody hand me that bedpan...

careful...

...careful...

there. Balanced on his forehead.

Now, somebody hand me his Jell-O...

Carol Elaine said...

I knew there was a reason I hadn't updated my blog since the Ice Ages (i.e. the middle of last month). I didn't want to over-burden you with all the catching up!

It's human African trypanosomiasis, right? I recently saw an episode of House and it turned out the patient had human African trypanosomiasis, even though she'd never been to Africa (she committed adultery with someone who had). I bet that's it.

Though PCOS would be awfully amusing...

neurondoc said...

Tania, I was so going to say Peyronie's disease. But I got distracted by work (oh the horror!) and didn't get back to the interweebs until now. Now let's see, what could Nathan have?

Diphyllobothrium latum infestation?
Acute intermittent porphyria?
Henoch-Schönlein purpura?
Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura?
Diverticulitis?
Methyl tetrahydrate Folate Reductase Deficiency?
Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy?
Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome?

I can keep going... :-)

Do I get a pointy hat, too?

Random Michelle K said...

So wait, does this mean I SHOULD or should NOT continue with the Vogon poetry?

MWT said...

Well, he seems to still be in the hospital. So I guess that's license to continue. ;)

Nathan said...

Natalie,

You're a scary woman.
And, no. I don't have any of those things.

Thank God.
