Homecoming, fried chicken and “the whoppin’ hat”

Michele is home and resting in bed. They sent her directly home from the ICU. This quick turn-around was the result of two things. She was doing very well and recovering quickly…and…they did not have an empty bed in the entire hospital. I am going to assume it is due more to the first circumstance. Still, I am keeping a close eye on her and wearing my nurses hat for the weekend. Not literally. Which leads me to:

A certain person, who shall remain nameless, has informed me that my previous attempt to inject pop culture and humor into her I mean THE blog might have been misinterpreted by some. So, to clarify:

Michele did not eat fried chicken yesterday. I ate fried chicken yesterday. From the cafeteria. And it was de-licious.

Michele does not hit me repeatedly with her hat. Skipper hits Gilligan repeatedly with his hat. Michele does not wear a hat. There are really very few, if any, shared traits between her and Skipper (The Skipper?).

So, in the highly unlikely event that my post caused you to assume that my wife walks around the house with a drumstick in one hand and her “whoppin’ hat” in the other you would be mistaken. My apologies to all.

This REALLY is my last post as I’m sure Michele will be up blogging and whoppin’ on us in no time. Thanks again to all of our great friends. You are all truly great.

  1. VERY happy to hear she is recovering so quickly.

    And you’re missing out – I love watching my wife stride around the house with her drumstick and whoopin’ hat.
    Granted, I watch from behind the sofa where it’s safe, but still…

    Thanks for the updates. Her internet friends are very thankful it’s gone so well thus far.

  2. Thanks to double G & husband extraordinaire for taking me from crying to laughing in a matter of minutes after reading the last two posts. The vision of Michele, (I have added a housecoat and slippers in my mind) whacking you with some Popeye’s in hand is truly delightful. I dare say that M has some stiff writing competition on her hands. Better get back in the saddle & start writing before those two take over the shop 🙂 Glad are you are home. Call you later. Big hug to the Rock, aka Bill.

  3. Where can I get a whoopin’ hat? Maybe my kids would listen to me if I had one of those.

    I am so happy to hear Michele is making a quick recovery. I can’t wait to hear her version of the events. No offense, Gilligan. You have been great and funny. You’re just not our OldDog, and I can’t picture you with new boobs.

  4. Thanks, Little Buddy…

  5. So, if I said that when you tagged the recent post, “Tumor” I heard, repeatedly, “It’s not a toomah!” in my head, per Arnold S. that I would be mistaken? 😛 I think you have been bitten by the writing bug, Gilligan… and laughter *is* the best medicine~! Glad to hear that they thought she was improved enough to return home, although the OR tech in me loves that you haven’t taken your nursing hat off yet… continued wishes for a speedy recovery!

  6. Wow, how amazing that you are already home! We will keep praying that all is well.

  7. Glad to hear she’s doin so well…. please tell her the positive energy and love is still comin from Sars in Cali…

  8. Good news! So glad the recovery is going well!
