When it comes to Sookie, Eric can’t think straight. But when his very existence is threatened, he must decide if she really is worth it.

    Can’t wait, but I’d much rather you enjoy the codone-buzz and heal for now. Good luck!

    Didn’t know you were having surgery. I hope you recover quickly. Looking forward to the story, because I know it will be good.

    • Thank you so much! I’m working on getting well. Each day is better, but my Dr told me it would be 2 weeks before the swelling goes down, and 6 weeks before I can start strengthening my muscles again.

      I really hope you enjoy the new story. I enjoyed writing it, so there’s always that. 🙂

    I’m so sorry to hear of your surgery, but hope that you’re on the mend & feeling better soon! Enjoy the Vicodin! Hopefully it helps you rest & heal as well as gives that nice little buzz to take you away… Get well soon, and concentrate on that! We’ll all be here waiting with bated breath!

    • Aww, thank you! I’m trying to wean off the drugs, but for now, I’m a little swimmy-headed and enjoying it immensely. I’m stronger every day, but sure to milk it for all its worth so everyone takes care of me. I know, it’s kind of jerky, but it’s about time someone took care of me like that, right? Right! Now, I’m going to demand breakfast. 🙂

        Milk it, honey! Who knows when you’ll get all this terrific care again? (Hopefully never because of surgery!) Vicodin doesn’t do much for me but ease my worst pain if I take it soon enough, but that’s living in the world of arthritis & chronic pain (and getting old!), so enjoy being swimmy-headed! It’s great to “hear” that you’re getting stronger each day! That is the best news of all. Be well, and enjoy being the Queen! 🙂

      • I’m so glad you agree. I’m milking it for sure. My husband keeps buying me baked goods and treats…can’t say no to creme brulee, right? 🙂 Or brioche…mmm brioche.

        At the moment, I’m trying not to laugh at my husband who’s explaining the heat of fusion to me for some reason. I can’t make this stuff up! 🙂

        mmm…you’re making me hungry! Sounds as though you’ve got a great hubby like mine! But, OMG! My husband does the same thing, explaining things way over my head. Since I had my first seizure 15 years ago & with it some permanent brain damage, I simply can’t comprehend certain scientific things & nothing mathematical at all. I can’t tell how many times I’ve looked blankly into his face, telling him, “You know I have no clue about this & you may as well be speaking Chinese.” To me, fusion is the name of a Ford. There’s heat with it? I learned something new for the next few hours! Thank you! 🙂

      • LOL I’m so glad I’m not the only one! He was asking me how many calories it took to raise a cubic centimeter of water 1 degree C and I said, “Seriously, you’re asking me an hour after I took hydrocodon?” He was just checking his facts…against me for some reason. LOL. Thank goodness for the internet! 🙂 Even if I wasn’t high, I wouldn’t be a good reference point. Never a dull moment around here. 🙂

        Oh goodness! Now that’s where my husband would have gotten “the blank face.” The metric system? We were told in high school – 40 years ago! – that the metric system was the future in the US. I know what a liter is thanks to Coke, Pepsi, et al.

      • I think we all should convert to the metric system. Standard measurements are terrible. My husband and I sided our garage a few years back and we invested in metric tape measures because trying to cut a plank to 61 and 7/16″ is just plain ridiculous. I’d much rather measure to 156.1 cm. Much easier. 🙂

        Luckily, my husband and I are both botanists with a chemistry background, so he can talk to me about liters, mLs and the like and I’m with him. It’s when he gets into math and physics that he loses me. He’s just showing off, and I know it. 🙂

        Oh, how delightful to both be botanists! A dream that was once upon a time… I can only imagine your gardens & landscaping. The metric system never took off the way we were told, and sadly, it’s hard to teach all of we old dogs new tricks! 🙂

        Get some rest now so your recuperation can progress more quickly – but make certain that the Queen requires whatever she chooses as lunch!
        Hope to chat with you later! I so enjoy our side chats!

      • I do so enjoy them too. 🙂 My husband made my favorite breakfast (and while I was waiting, warmed up part of a fougasse loaf he picked up from the bakery yesterday). I’m milking it for all its worth!

        The garden is full of weeds, but I’m in no shape to be crouching and pulling…so I guess we’ll be cultivating them for the next few weeks! My yard is lush and shady, which is just the way I like it. 🙂 I’m just sad that it’s apricot season and I’m not making jam. Good thing I have some from last year!! I guess I’ll just have to eat my fill of fresh fruit. 🙂

        My husband does all of the gardening now too since I’m no longer able. Oh, I miss it! There’s just something about playing the dirt & watching as what you’ve planted grows. It’s also great therapy! We’ve grown lovely weeds this year! We have a large yard with different sections, and one is very shady so it’s lovely to watch whatever comes up annually. You can as well – had my fill of it when I was little, but to make fresh jams! YUM!

      • Oh yes, I can. There have been some years where I’ve put up over 300 bottles. Never needed to buy jam or applesauce for years now! I love the satisfaction of eating out of my own yard, although weeding is not my favorite. Of course, now that I can’t do it, it’s all I can think about! By the time my 6 week recovery is done, it’ll be too late…I already have a winter squash that’s taking over my raspberry patch. How did it grow 20′ in two weeks? I need to tell my husband to harvest the zucchinis. There are two that’ll be too big if I’m not careful. 🙂

    Let me tell you, I’ve had so many surgeries, I wanted to be sedated two miles BEFORE I get to the hospital. I also ask for the Versed, valium and Fentanyl cocktail as soon as I’m in the surgical prep area. So, from one who is expert as for as surgery and recovery goes, take your pain meds as prescribed, enjoy the fuzzies while you can, cause all to soon, they’ll wean you off the good stuff and all you’ll be left with is Tylenol 😦
    Feel better soon 😉 patsy

    • Thanks Patsy! Turns out I have an extreme sensitivity to versed, so it (and all its family of drugs) are on my no-no list. Hydrocodon is as strong as it gets for me, and because I’m such a lightweight, it’s working wonders! I’m nearly done with it though, and as long as ibuprofen helps, I’m good without the fuzzy head. 🙂 Thanks again for the love and advice! 🙂

    Arrgo I did it again. I wrote you this heart warming comment and I forgot to hit the post comment button. Sucks.

    Anyway…2nd try.
    I hope you feel better. Take your time. Your readers will be here for you. Besides a little time to recharge clears out mind and sometimes brings out the best stories.
    Feel better soon. Take mental/physical/emotional care always.

    • YvonnA, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. 🙂 Recovery is stupid and frustrating and painful, so kindness like this is really wonderful! I’m glad to know you’re waiting…because my brain is on vacation while I sleep and waddle around and then sleep some more. Thanks again for the love. I’ll post as soon as I can. 🙂

    As usual I’m late but I’d like to wish you well too…

    • Ah, Loftin, you always know how to make me smile. 🙂 Thanks for the well-wishes. I’m on the mend for real now and actually doing some regular human kinds of things (getting up and down without assistance! Cooking! Showering!). It’s delightful. I’ve been pampered by my family like crazy and while it’s been a rough couple of weeks, it could’ve been way worse without them. 🙂 Thanks again for the love, I always appreciate it!
