April 25, 2003
This is Kathy, the wife. Bob entered the ER yesterday at 4:45, and was admitted to the hospital at about 8:30. He has an IV drip in his arm giving him medicine to thin his blood. He doesn't seem to be in any pain, his room looks like a hotel and the nurses are all young and cute. What a deal! He will be there "for two or three days" according to the Docs. He is in great spirits, and we are all happy that he is doing something other than wait for the Hematologist to see him. ("The soonest I can get you in is April 30.")I'll let him tell you about when the doctor asked if he had Pepto Bismal lately.

Of course he is losing weight, that happens when it hurts to eat. Several years ago, when he had trouble with his thyroid, he was eating whole pecan pies after chicken fried steak with cream gravy and losing weight. Does that seem fair to you? Me either. The only disease I ever get is pregnancy. I'm still trying to lose the weight I gained, and my daughter is 22. My sister-in-law summed it up nicely when she said;

"How come Bob gets all the good diseases?"
