Apparently they chipped a tooth in OR. The hospital just called to see how I was doing and I told them. The person who called said she'd let the department know about it. Naturally, my dentist is closed until April 16.

Rap, I sure do wish you, as well as your better half, would stop with needing the surgeries already. You hear me boy?

It's not a big deal, but the surgeon is "fusing" my left thumb on April 1. (It's a big deal for me, of course, with general anesthesia and being cut open. I moved to Idaho and have lots of surgeries ever since.)

So off we go looking for calm waters,but maybe stormy clouds are threatening.
Now the Rainbow offers a safe berth, to share our thoughts and fears, some of the crew may be on their own without someone to share the wee small hours of the morning when it is difficalt to calm the mind.
Be safe and keep well,share your thoughts, I am putting coffee on the stove in the galley,and have made a naughty coffee cake, come and share,
Sending love

My Dear Wendy, I missed our rendezvous aboard The Rainbow last night. When I tried to logon, the site was down. After that, an ageing brain, coupled with increasingly heavy eyelids, put paid to the rest of my evening. You still retain your optimistic, glass half full attitude, despite everything that has happened & continues to happen in your life. It is your positivity that has endeared you to so many, here on Jane's Rainbow. Like you, Ann & I are in isolation for three months & like you, we rely on friends & a neighbour for our supplies. Having spent a day with you & Bill the other year, I look forward to the time when we can meet again, freely & cheerfully, with nothing more to bother us than removing some sand from between our toes.
                     Much Love to you, Bill & your family,
                     Keep well, stay safe,
                                                      Nigel & Ann xxx

So here we are, all aboard the Rainbow, in such troubled waters such as we have never known before.
7 years since Jane left us and since then her boat has given so much love and help to so many.
All our troubles have been supported and lessened by so much love by this wonderful crew.
I have had so much support, while my husband had treatmdnt for leukaemia and the support I had lookimg after my mother for 5 years when she had dementia.The love from you all kept me going whem the situation was so very difficalt.
Now we all face very frightening times, here in the UK we are confined in our house for who knows how long? Although Billy is in remission it is un wise for us to go out, we rely on others to buy food and essentials. Our daughter who is on chemotherapy for Crohns has been told to stay indoors for 3 months and is in isolation with her 2 daughters and we cannot help or see them.Our step grandaughter is a nurse in London nursing coronavirus patients.She is working 100 hours a week and is exausted.
But we know others have more desperate situations, so all my prayers and loving thoughts go out to everyone who is trouble ,frightened and may be alone with no support. So sail on Rainbow bring us all into safe harbour as soon as you can.
Fondest love
Wendy xxxxx

Those kinds of anniversaries are heartbreaking to observe.

A little over six weeks out from the knee replacement and I managed my first night's sleep without the narcotic painkiller. There was a tough spot in the wee hours when the Rx Ibuprofen wore off and everything felt awful, but the next dose kicked in after about 30 minutes. Note to self to overlap them a bit to avoid that again.

Thanks, Keb, I hadn't thought to look in here for a while. I'm nearly a month out and many of the more difficult parts of knee replacement are over; no more deep vein thrombosis cuffs, or rigorous physical therapy (when she left I was sometimes sore for a couple of days). But now it is battling the effects of long-term pain killers and heavy-duty antibiotics, and the daily urge to do too much (walking) and paying for it for hours or days after.

The whole world needs to take a long break. Literally. Who knew it would ever come to this—well, some smart people did, but they were Casandras in this world of populist government officials who don't know how to govern or how to listen to scientists.

Stay healthy and safe, everyone.

To be perfectly clear, I most certainly do not want this thread to be "...euthanised or declared dead". Because I relinquished my stewardship of Jane's Rainbow some time ago, leaving the thread to self-perpetuate, thereby shifting the emphasis from 'my thread' to 'our thread', I felt the right thing to do was to seek opinions. My wish is for Jane's Rainbow to remain accessible to all.

Has 'Jane's Rainbow' still a useful part to play on Mudcat or should I ask Joe to close the thread? There is no doubt in my mind that since I first posted on 12th January, 2012, the 'Rainbow' has served our community well. However, as you can see, the last post (no pun intended) was from Stilly River Sage on 25th October, 2019, so have we come to the end of our glorious voyage? Please let me know your thoughts.

I have been checking in on Susan Oldberg Hinton's Facebook page (WYSIWYG) and find that since the last time I looked I am no longer a friend, so I can't post a remark asking how she is, and the friend Sabrina, who Greg said to look to for updates, hasn't posted anything for weeks.

There are still 16 mutual Mudcat friends who can see more of her account. Please start asking about how she's doing and reach out to her husband if necessary. If she's in rehab it would be nice to know, and to be able to send cards or call (if allowed) directly.
