Nil by mouth

I spoke too damned soon about the evil gallstones! I write this from hospital after a mighty flare up. They doubt it is food related. Possibly an infection. Baaaah! Waiting for test results but now mellow and not in too much pain thanks to the meds. Please send jokes.

I am so sorry that you are in hospital for the dreaded stones. I don't have any good jokes off hand, but there was a cute episode of "Friends" (maybe on YouTube?) when Joey had kidney stones. That might bring at least a smile. I hope you are on the mend soon! Blessings to you.

Oh no! I hope the stress of London hasn't triggered off an attack! Tell the Docs exactly how you feel and if you aren't happy with their opinion - stand up for yourself or get hubby to fight your corner!

Sending you lots of positive vibes.

Oh no... the dreaded Gallies.

Cheer up soon, meantime... joke

A motorcycle cop was rushed to the hospital with an inflamed appendix.

The doctors operated and advised him that all was well. However, the patrolman kept feeling something pulling at the hairs on his chest. Worried that it might be a second surgery the doctors hadn't told him about, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown down enough so he could look at what was making him so uncomfortable.

Taped firmly across his hairy chest were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the ultra sticky kind. Written in large black letters was the sentence, "Get well soon! Luv, from the nurse you gave a ticket to last week!"

Love Granny

Oh no! I'll think of something funny and send it to you by email. I'm sure I've done something stupid or embarrassing lately. Get better!

Oh, dear, poor Jo! Well, I'm a day late and maybe you're all better by now. I hope so!

Hmm, lets see if I remember to tell this joke properly:

An 83 year old woman had just had her yearly physical. The doctor told her she was in pretty good health, considering her age. Then he asked, "Tell me, do you still have intercourse?"

"I'm not sure," she replied. "Let me ask my husband."

So she opens the door to the waiting room and yells out the door "Alvin, do we still have intercourse?"

There was a hush in the waiting room. You could have heard a pin drop.

"If I told you once, I told you ten times Irma, we have Blue Cross!" Haha. Well, I am sure I didn't tell it as it should be told, but maybe you got a chuckle out of it, Jo.

Get well soon!
