    Why is it that people always have the worst emergencies late at night or on weekends?

    Last night i had a double dip, my old man called at 12 telling me he was dizzy and had pains (he's 83).

    So after ariving there and a trip to the nearest hospital, it was a 4 hour wait to hear that he had a strangulated hernia and needs emergency surgury, but they can't reach his GP and heart dr just yet...

    That lil problem was solved by 9, and he's in the recovery room now, and I still haven't slept since yesterday.

    OK go back to pissing and whining about the GoP and BO now.

    I'm glad he got to the docs on time. Maybe one should take a break about "pissing and whining about the GoP and BO" for now...

    Glad your dad is going to be OK xeno! Thank goodness you were close enough to go over there, then get him to a hospital!

    Now get off of here and go take a nap! :)

    Xenophon - Hope all is going to be ok with your Dad. My thoughts are with you. Now, close up your laptop and go take a long snooze...

    Because we're determined to prove that Murphy's Law cannot be broken.

    Don't know why but emergencies always happen at inopportune times. Hope all is going well with your dad, Xeno. My mom (81) just had the exact same thing happen - femoral hernia, emergency surgery. All went well until one week post surgery, she developed pneumonia. Another 3 days hospital stay. She's been home a week and a half, mending slowly. When the parental units start falling apart . . . it sucks. :sad:
