If it's springtime in the Rockies (yeah I know you're a little further East, but...)
It's probably May or June
If you're coming back in April
You're coming back too soon!

With the snow caps high around you
and the chapstick on your mouth
If you like your spring in April
You better head down South!

I gave lip balm as Christmas gifts this year to several friends. A Facebook friend makes Bacon-flavored lip balm, and it was a big hit!

My father went to the ER on Christmas Day with blood in his urine. Today, the bleeding has stopped, and they are going to send him home. I haven't heard the results of the tests yet.

Thanks for the poem! I loved it!

Hope your dad is feeling better. Your dad is just three years older than my dad.

My dad seems to have calmed down. We are going to make him a walking path in the field across the road. That way he can walk safely.

I hope both of your dads are doing well.

I've been remarkably lazy these last two days and the kids have been as well. It's been nice.

My father is doing just fine now. The urologist found a lesion in my father's bladder and cauterized it. The doc said that this is not unusual in elderly patients. Thank God it was not more serious.

Thank you both for your well wishes.

Yeah, it is just cranky. Probably weather related or something. Lots of injuries in high school, everything complains more than it should.

Maybe you could ask your Dr. about Diclofenac. It works just okay for my RA, but it might be good for knee pain also.

When tivo failed to record an episode I looked on Hulu and the show wasn't there. That was a few months ago. I did however find it on youtube. Just got lucky since only a few shows were there and mostly just a few clips from others.

Hi Godfather & Jawsuser, nice to see you both

My father is in the hospital again: pneumonia and staph infection. They can't locate the source of the infection yet. They are going to try to remove the ventilator today.

Prayers appreciated.

No, thank you. Glad he's posting on FB. I just wanted to make sure he was doing ok since we hadn't heard from him in months. Didn't know he was on there, thanks.

Godfather praying for your father. Please pray for mine. He sounds like Darth Vadar. He will probably be going on oxygen Tuesday when we see the doctor.

Can I add a quick and vague request as well. My uncle spent all day in the hospital on the 8th, my aunt didn't tell anyone until she was finally home (even though my uncle spent the night). Then he was released, it was lung pain and maybe related to not using appropriate protection while welding and painting. Then this morning he was back checked in in severe pain.

I really don't know what it is or if it's serious, but it obviously hurts, so some comfort for him, he's over 80 and as much as we don't like to think about it, healing tends to take so much longer in an older body.

Thank you and everyone else for your prayers and healing energies. I'll keep your father in my prayers.

My father is still in ICU and on the ventilator. His fever is reducing, so it looks like they are using the correct antibodies to fight the infection (although, they still don't know exactly where the infection is). I'm hoping he can get off the ventilator soon.
