Dad Update and a Brain Fart

Dad Update
Dad is still doing good with the new flush tube and/or stent. Mom's still not sure if he got a new stent or just a new tube. No fever today. One doctor told dad he heard they were going home tomorrow and dad says he's not going home until he's sure he won't run fever again as soon as he gets home. Hopefully, he'll feel better about going home and will be home tomorrow or the next day.

Brain Fart
I quoted "Airplane!" today ("Don't call me Shirley") and couldn't think of Leslie Nielsen's name to save my life. The problem was that my brain got stuck in a loop of "Liam Neeson"..."Liam Neeson"..."Liam Neeson"...

With Liam Neeson running through my brain, Leslie Nielsen couldn't get through. I guess I'm not smarter than a fifth grader.

Leslie Nielson is a very funny man (and that's a funny scene), But I've often not been able to remember his name.

I know it's hard when parents are ill. You have my thoughts.

My baby brother who has been the most frequent hospital patient in our family never misses an opportunity to do the "hospital" bit

"hospital? What is it?
It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now."

I hope your dad stops getting fevers now that he has all the news

Yes! Glad to hear that he had a day without fever. Even just a low fever can make one feel really run down and sad. Sending good healing energy for all of you.
