Bad to the Bone (or just slightly irritated)

The good news is that I am now down to one hospital visit a week - woohoo!

I do have to go in this Friday however, for an appointment with the Orthopaedic Department (the infection has suprisingly fractured my femur - I should be in agony I've been told!).

Also, I need a Chest X-Ray and Bone Density Scan so a fun packed day on Friday to look forward to. The knee isn't giving me much discomfort but my back is painful when I sit down or get up. Never a dull moment in life after a transplant operation.

I feel like old man Steptoe with all these aches and pains. I'm watching 'Dylan Moran Live' and episodes of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' and 'Ever Decreasing Circles' to keep the humourometer in shape (yes, I made that word up) so I don't start acting like him.

Other good news is that we may get away for Easter. 'Hospital in the Home' are happy for Sam to administer the IV fluids for the weekend. We definitely all need a break and Flinders is a great little town on the coast; the kids love riding their bikes all over the place, using the swimming pool and hunting for crabs.

In AFL news we have Hawthorn vs Sydney to look forward to on Saturday.

Glad to see you're giving the ol' humourometer a workout. I love Curb Your Enthusiasm.

In the US it's National Humor Month, with today being April Fool's Day. It's also National Poetry Month. We like to mix up the sacred and the profane over here.

Here's to laughs ...

I've been watching "Seinfeld" over and over. Also, I watched two movies that I wasn't sure about but they made me laugh a lot: "Weddiing Crashers" and "What About Bob." I also stumbled onto "What Women Want" on TV and that was funny too.

We watched so much Seinfeld and Frasier in Seattle but we never tired of it!
