Maxi Is In Quarantine

by Maxi

First off, let me say that I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. It was quiet for David and me … not one of our best. Nor our daughter, Bernadette; she sliced her finger making a sandwich the day after Thanksgiving and ended up in the emergency room.

My ears are ringing, I can hear you saying: I remember the time…

Well, recovery from the rotator cuff surgery is really slow. The pain is a little less each day, but I gotta tell ya therapy is tough. Days I don’t go to therapy there are exercises to inflict pain. Thing is: if I don’t do all this, the shoulder tightens up and doesn’t heal right, the pain becomes worse…

Remember the time you went to the doctor and knew that shot was coming, the really big one that burns like crazy when the medicine is going in? You try to relax but can’t, which only makes it worse. This is kind of like that times one thousand.

Does that get me some sympathy?

In the middle of all this I got the flu … twice. Matter of fact, I’m fighting it for the second time right now. I’m in quarantine, still contagious. The doctor put me on Tamiflu. Have you ever taken it? David says there has been some controversy about Tamiflu, yet I wouldn’t be at the keyboard without it.

C’mon now, that should get me some mercy.

All kidding aside, I apologize for things being so messed up lately and hope to be back to normal next week. If you have any interesting Thanksgiving stories you want to share, you can send them to my personal e-mail box: or
