Re: [MOL] Kathy in Boise champit tatties



Hi, Jeanne:  Some of it sounds delicious -- some sounds yukky!!! LOL  We're
going to a "tailgate" party on Superbowl Sunday, if Jerry feels well enough.
His surgery went well today and he's home now.  I'm going to insist he go to
bed right away and get some rest, though.  It wasn't exactly
diverticulitis -- it was an impaction in his large intestine -- very large
and painful.  Apparently, a chicken bone or something became lodged in there
and caused an abcess.  The doctor removed it, and now Jerry is on some very
powerful antibiotics.  We're extremely relieved, though.  It could have been
so much worse!  Love, Kathy
