Subject: BS: Kat's Sparky needs some good thoughts
From: katlaughing
Date: 15 Jan 04 - 09:12 PM

Some of you may remember my dad, Sparky, and maybe have his tape of Cow Songs. He's going to be 87 this May and until earlier this past year, was still driving 60 miles round trip once or twice per week to "entertain the old folks" in nursing homes.

Yesterday, when I had my weekly chat with him, he said his "waterworks" were plugged up and that the specialist whom he was to see, today, would probably be able to fix things.

His wife just called me this evening. She said the urologist said there is not much to be done because of age (surgery is out) so he'll be faced with daily catheterization and more meds. for the long term, it seems. It's not cancer or anything, apparently just old plumbing.:-)

Anyway, it's really getting him down. His short-term memory is scant and he's not been in his music room to practise for the past month; the first time in memory that has happened. He has a physical therapist and home health aid coming in everyday and the physo told him today that they'd have him playing music again, soon, so hopefully he'll try to focus on that and feel better. He is talking a lot about checking out and we've talked about it, in the past, and he knows that's okay, but his wife and docs don't think it's in the cards, right now, at least.

So, my thought was if his Mudcat friends would like to post some good thoughts/messages, I'd print them off and send them over or take them over, whichever comes first and maybe that would help cheer him up and to feel better. He's always appreciated your messages so much as I have, too.

Thanks so much,

luvyakat

Blessings on him- and on you, kat.

Have they thought of simply leaving a catheter in, with a catch bag? It's not painful and far less invasive than repeated insertions. One can walk around with it too. Infection from either method is a possibility that has to be guarded against.

Tell him that you have made a lot of friends for him on the Mudcat! Many of us will be thinking about him and bathing him with light.

Dear sir,

I wish to appologise for the inconvineiance that you have suffered due to the problems with the plumbing at our Hotel. Let me assure you that we are doing everything possible to make repairs but as you can imagine, with such a beautiful old building we sometimes have to work round a problem in order to get to a solution. Can I please assure you that we have absolutely no intention of asking you to "check out" and move on and that we hope you will be a much valued guest here for a long long time.

yours sincerely

Dads are precious: they need a lot of love. (Sounds like Sparky has his fair share already!) My dad's only in his 70s (as is Mom), but is beginning to show signs of wear and tear, so I know it's important to keep the Good Vibes going for him. Who was it said "youth is wasted on the young"? They were right -- we should keep some back for when we're old enough to apreciate it!

I've got a rambling big ol' house. In fact, some Mudcatters have best described it as funky. Amongst it's charms is a wonderful woodburning stove in the front foyer that the insurance agents made us disconnect when the previous owners couldn't produce the papers proving it was installed to code 25 yeras before. Now you could argue that it's just an aged out shell with no purpose left, but you'd be wrong. It's still the hearth. When you open its doors, it now holds a dragon of burnished red metal who holds the flame on his tounge, in his heart, in his belly, and at his source. He's burning now and even though he no longer provides the burning flames that blast one from the room with heat, he provides a centering steady burn guide us through.   today he flames for his namesake. Tend the flame Sparky, and let it guide you, as long as the embers are burning, tend, rekindle, and fuel....


Blessings and Light

Dear Kat's Dad, I'm sure that anyone who has earned the name Sparky is not going to be knocked down by waterworks problems. You'll come through I know, and you'll be getting those 'old folks' dancing in the aisles and singing the choruses to raise the roof. Tons of good luck to you sir, from over here in the UK.

Sparky,
I think I know what might get the old water works back in shape. Hit to old campaign trail for George W. Bush! Take your guitar, banjo, fiddle, or whatever along and sing some cowboy songs. Soon lots of folks will gather around to see what the old cowboy is singing and before you know it, you will have a huge crowd gathered so that George can make speech inviting their votes come this November.

Your daughter will be VERY proud of you! Hee Hee Hee!

Take care,

Dear Mr Hudson, Forgive the formality of address but I would feel quite cheeky to address you as "Sparky" when I hardly know you. I felt I must write and say , hang in there, Fella, play music, sing, it is among the best medicine you can get.
You are known of, and respected in more parts of the world than you probably suspect,even though many of us only know of you through your "Cow songs" recording but we are all pulling for you and hope you will feel better in your self soon. We look forward to future recordings and to your mrmories of life in Colorado in harder times, Yours, with Respect Micca

Yo, Sparky,

First of all, ignore Doug's suggestion.

Second of all, it's okay to not wanta get in yer car and drive 60 mph to play fir other folks but it ain't okay not to play. Sp play what ya' can. Music has an amazing ability to heal. Plus, clears out yer danged head a tad... (No jokes, thank you...).

I am not one of those who has been blessed to hear yer music but would like to. Maybe you can let me know how to get a CD, 'er tape, 'er wax, 'er....

Now, go play a little music... fir yer own pleasure...

Peace

Kat,

Sorry to hear this but you remember to tell him all about that urologist twho sings the blues. URETHRA FRANKLIN !!

Sparky, I love your tape of cowboy songs--but you know that. I thought it was as good as so many of the Library Of Congress colllected cowboy songs. Matter of fact, I'm gonna send a copy of it to Joe Hickerson--now retired from the Folklife Center there. (I'll only do that if it's o.k. with you.) I know Joe will enjoy it and make sure it's archived there with all the great collections of lore and music.

Another thing to keep in mind is that back a few years nobody had catheters. But BEN FRANKLIN, knowing the old adage, "Necessity is the mother of strange bedfellows", when he had troubles like yours and mine, he improvised and used the hollow quill of a porcupine.
Remember, Surgilube is cheaper than K-Y. Pretty much the generic brand that doctors use.) Yes, I know all about these things. If you guys need to talk, Kat has our phone number.((((((**BIG SMILE with hugs to boot**)))))

Hello, Sparky. We have never had the pleasure of meeting you, but I can see by what your daughter says that you are a performer. I'm glad to hear that you can help keep the older ladies and lads entertained.

We understand that you have been feeling poorly of late, and we wanted to wish you a speedy recovery. Medical problems sure can get a person down, but we know that musicians always bounce back. We will keep you in out prayers, Sparky, and someday we hope to hear you sing in person. Bless you, buddy.

Sounds like your Dad has a good support system! I hope he can remain positive in the face of this challenge. There are some Chinese herbal treatments that strengthen the kidney and bladder and these tend to work subtly but effectively within a few days...might make him feel a bit better. (Like vitamins or herbal supplements, but they each have a combnation of herbs) I can get the herbs or treatments in Chinatown, let me know if you're interested.

Hey, Sparky!

We're sending prayers out to you that you will remember how much you still have to GIVE. I'd fix you up with my Mother if you were closer to her. But, you're kinda young for her. She's going to be 97. She's finally going to have to give in and use a wheel chair to get around because her legs are getting too weak. But, that won't stop her from trying to do things for others. Today, the Men's Chorus I sing with is singing at the 101st birthday of a member of our church.
She keeps busy by feeding those in the nursing home who don't have the strength in their hands to feed themselves any more.

You got yourself quite a daughter, you know...

From igniting kat's love of music, to sharing music with the seniors, bringing to them, great joy and healing, to the many, many folks with unknown faces who've heard your recorded music.....You've touched so many with your gift!   Take what time you need to rest a bit, then make some more music, and take what healing you can from it for yourself. Lots of good thoughts and prayers are being sent out there for ya, Sparky.   And when you feel up to it, jot us a note and tell us how you got the name Sparky!   All the best to you, KT

So Spark, ya' got plumbing problems huh? I ain't the guy to talk to about it. The plumbing in my house is a disaster so you don't need me working on yours. Now my plumbing works just fine, it's just that it's an amalgamation of various types of piping, including a few automotive parts thrown when I couldn't figure out a better way to fix something!

So here's what I can do for you.......I'll promise just to send some good thoughts your way and not try to fix you up with any auto parts if you'll promise to do what the doctor says and get better. Deal?

BTW, my Cockatiel has an infection that's also caused some plumbing problems for him. Turns out his whizz is dry! I didn't know you could do that and it sounds pretty painful. Anyway we found him on the floor of his cage and managed to get him to the Birdie ICU on time. He's on the mend now and gets released on Wednesday. You need to be encouraged by this because if they can fix a bird with dry whizz, you oughta' be a piece of cake.

Get Well and Beat Your Daughter,

Spaw

Sparky, I am Thinking of you. I have heard so much about you and you sound so wonderful. You have so much more to share with us so don't leave the Music room empty for too long now ya hear!
You have given me a great Friend in your Daughter and I suspect that she got her very Kind Heart and Love of Music from you.
If you need ANYTHING just ask....Kat can pass it on to me.
You are and will continue to be in my Thoughts.
Blessings, Light and Love.
Jude

Thanks, again, to all of you. I just spoke with dad. He received your messages, today, in the mail and was really so pleased and grateful. He just thinks the world of all of you.

He sounded a tiny bit stronger, and said he felt better than yesterday, but his wife said he's much the same. He will see the urologist again this Thursday.

His mental attitude sounded better, though. We both agreed it'd be pretty rotten to have to stick around with it being this way, but that he feels he will get well enough to put up with the indignities and not feel so awful while doing so.:-)

Please keep him in your thoughts and thank you,

luvyakat
