Seriously???

When I tried to return to the hospital earlier today my car wouldn't start. Mr. Lime came home so I could use his truck. He seems to think it's something minor, something small, something easily and inexpensively repaired...like a head gasket.

In more positive news, they expect to release Calypso Tuesday morning. She's drinking well and eating a little and generally looking much better though still totally wiped out. Mr. Lime's foot seems to be improving again too.

Of all of them, I'm glad that it's the vehicle which is showing bigger signs of ill health. Continuing to send best thoughts.

But see, the good thing is, you know who put the cosmos there in the first place (and you in it). . . (And the rain does, after all, fall on the just and the unjust alike. . .)

Anyway, laughter would seem to be a most fitting response. . .

I had mono once. Just be sure that she gets all the rest she needs; 20 hours/day of sleep would not be excessive. . .

A head gasket would be. . . ugh. . .

I thought bad things only came in 3's? It's like 10's for you! Thinking of you today!

OK, so it appears things are getting a bit better. Prayer will continue. How about Isaac?

oh man you are having terrible luck lately. Did you piss off a leprechaun or something?

so sorry! hope all will get well for you soon. :)

You don't really need a head gasket. In fact, you should remove the whole engine, because it's a waste of valuable storage space. Cut holes in the floor, and drive like the Flintstones.

coopernicus said...

well at least it was something minor...and not some major repair, like running out of gas.

Car troubles suck!

San said...

Well, I'm glad things are looking up for Calypso and your spouse.

A head gasket? That's what I might blow in the midst of these troubles. Don't miss my comment on your previous post. Something to bear in mind. Or bare in mind.
