DEC 19 2017
WATSON HAS GONE HOME-- A FINAL 10 MINUTES  AND ... WHO NEEDS HIM ANYMORE??? .  NOW THE HARD PART  63 DAYS AND  THEN ONE MONTH OF RAISING PUPS  AND MOM TOO WILL GO HOME TO NORMAL LIFE.. THERE IS A BROADWAY SONG ABOUT "REMEMBER IT IS HE WHO HAS THE FUN AND THEE THE BABY" --- TRUE WITH DOGS TOO I GUESS...

MOMMY NATURE- WHO WE KNOW REIGNS SUPREME, HAS 2 COUSINS CALLED GRAVITY AND CENTRIFICAL FORCE- I DON'T MEAN TO IGNORE THE HUMANS INVOLVED IN THE TRAIN ACCIDENT, BUT I AM NOT BELIEVING WHAT I AM HEARING ABOUT TRAINS..
THEY ARE EQUIPED WITH   A ? MONITOR?  WHICH CAN APPLY BRAKES IF  A PERSON'S HAND IS NOT ON THE CONTROLS FOR MORE THAN XX SECONDS...???  AND IT WAS TURNED OFF???  WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH 2 PEOPLE IN THAT TRAIN DRIVING PLACE...AS IN CO-PILOTS..  WHY SHOULD ANYONE EVEN  HAVE TO CONSIDER  A GIZMO MIGHT BE NEEDED TO  MAKE SURE THE DRIVER WAS NOT TEXTING OR SNOOZING????-- OR THAT IT WAS EVEN EQUIPT WITH AN "OFF " SWITCH IN THE FIRST PLACE???  

THEN THERE WAS TEH LOGIC OF "WE NEED TO HAVE  A FAST TRAIN BY 2017" SO THEY PASSED A WHATEVER.. AND "THEY"  PASSED FUNDING SO THAT THE RAILS SHOULD BE REPAIRED BY 2015-- BUT SINCE  THAT DIDN'T SEEM TO WORK OUT   A BUNCH OF LAW TYPES DECIDED THEY COULD ALLOW THE REPAIR TO BE PUT OFF FOR 3 YEARS TIL 2018--  WITHOUT REGARD FOR THE  POLITICALLY CORRECT START OF THE FAST TRAIN IN 2017...

 TO HEAR ABOUT  A HANGING TRAIN CAR IS ABOUT AS BAD AS HANGING CHADS...

I AM ALWAYS ENCOUGARED TO HEAR OF AN MD TYPE DOCTOR WHO IS IN CONGRESS HOPEFULLY DEALING WITH MEDICAL THINGS...  I HAVE A FEELING THAT THE LAWYERS OUTNUMBER THE SCIENTISTS-- WHICH IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MAJOR CAUSES FOR THE TRAIN ACCIDENT... MOMMY NATURE'S 5TH COUSINS, TWICE REMOVED ARE POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND BUDGET CONSIDERATIONS...

 WHILE I AM AT IT..... THERE IS A BIT OF LOGIC HERE.... TO INCREASE THE TAXES  OF  "UPPER 1% OF TEH HIGH INCOME PEOPLE"   WOULD PROBABLY  GIVE THE GOVERNMENT MORE INCOME THAN TO RAISE THE  REST OF THE COUNTRY'S TAX BY  1% -
----THE HIGH INCOME PEOPLE WOULD NOT NOTICE THE "MISSING FUNDS"  BUT THE REST OF THE COUNTRY'S 1% INCREASE MIGHT MEAN THEY WOULD HAVE TO MAKE A CHOICE BETWEEN  EATING OR SLEEPING IN A WARM PLACE. 
**
THE ACCOUNTANT I TALKED WITH YESTERDAY MADE SOME REFERENCE TO  DONATING BEFORE  THE END OF THE YEAR BECAUSE WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE NEW TAX RULES MIGHT BE IN 2018...... IT IS DEDUCTABLE NOW.
WHY SHOULD WE KNOW WHAT THE NEW TAX RULES MIGHT BE??? I HEAR THE THING IS 500 PAGES LONG -- AND DONT TELL ME ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE VOTING ON IT HAVE READ, AND THOUGHT, ABOUT ALL 500 PAGES....
***
IT WOULD BE COMICAL IF IT WAS NOT SO SERIOUS... IT IS SORT OF BRAIN SURGERY WITH A CHAIN SAW...

surgery for bella--  do you suppose with her addiction to star wars that her halo could be "decorated"  like R2D2??


DAY 1-TODAY HAD ITS MANY UPS AND DOWNS. IT STARTED FINE AND THEN DR KARLIN WASN’T SURE IF HE COULD MAKE THE TRACTION ATTACHMENTS WORK ON THE HALO HE HAD BEEN GIVEN. HE WAS TOSSING AROUND THE IDEA OF PUTTING IT OFF A COUPLE DAYS UNTIL IT WAS HERE BUT THEN THEY GOT THE PIECE AND WERE ABLE TO GO FORWARD. BELLA GOT INTO RECOVERY AROUND 11:30 BUT NOT INTO A ROOM UNTIL 5:30. SHE WOULD SLEEP AND THEN THROW UP. SHE COULDN’T KEEP WATER DOWN BUT THAT IS PRETTY NORMAL FOR BELLA. FOR PAIN MEDS SHE IS ONLY ON TYLENOL. SHE IS HOOKED UP TO THE TRACTION. THEY START HER AT 8 LBS OF WEIGHT AND WILL WORK UP TO 20 LBS . SO FAR SHE JUST HAS A SLIGHT HEADACHE WHICH IS NORMAL WHEN YOU HAVE 6 SCREWS PLACED IN YOUR HEAD. BUT SHE HASN’T BEEN MISERABLE IN PAIN LIKE SHE UNUSUALLY IS AFTER SURGERY. GEORGE SO FAR HANDLED THE DAY LIKE A TROOPER. WHEN THEY WHEELED BELLA AWAY TO THE OR GEORGE TRIED TO FOLLOW HER BACK. THEN WHEN I HAD HIM COME WITH ME HE KEPT LOOKING BACK FOR BELLA. ONCE WE GOT TO THE ROOM TO WAIT HE WAS FINE AND TOOK A NAP. HE SLEPT NEXT TO HER BED IN RECOVERY AND NOW HAS HIS BED ALL SET UP IN HER ROOM. SHE ASKED FOR FOOD AROUND 6:30 AND ATE A RAVIOLI. THEY SAID IF SHE KEEPS IT DOWN SHE CAN HAVE MORE AROUND 7:30 SO SHE IS PATIENTLY WAITING BECAUSE SHE SAID SHE IS STARVING! THEY DIDN’T PLACE AN IV. THEY ACCESSED HER PORT AND AS LONG AS SHE EATS AND DRINKS THEY WILL TAKE IT OUT IN THE MORNING. SO I WILL UPDATE AGAIN IN THE MORNING WITH HOW HER NIGHT WENT. DAD IS STAYING WITH HER TONIGHT AND I WILL GO HOME WITH GABI. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR THE LOVING SUPPORT AND ALL THE MESSAGES. THEY SURE ARE A PICK ME UP! LOVE MUCH BELLA AND GEORGE

P.S.  IT IS TEH 19TH... GET THOSE CAKES TO  YOUR FIRE DEPARTMENT !!
