Hello...?...? (peeks head in..)...Is anyone here??....
I've missed you all so much! I've been busy dragging Chilly to physical therapy multiple times per week (trying to get him up walking again) as well as going to lots of follow-up doctor appointments trying to keep him among the living. His doctors are 45 minutes away. As a matter of fact, my day usually begins with Willie Nelson whispering "On the Road Again" in my ear... it's kind of like that movie "Groundhog Day" where Bill Murray wakes up every day to "I've Got You, Babe". Thanks, Chilly...the good times just keep coming with you!
So, Chilly and I took Catherine out to see "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs." It was a FABULOUS day! First of all, there was no pink bucket tagging along.......What? What does a pink bucket have to do with taking your wee girl to a movie? Pink Bucket hasn't left Chilly's side since he was in the hospital. I'm sure you can use your imagination to figure out what might end up in the pink bucket...let's just say it starts with "v and ends with "t" all thanks to the swelling in Chilly's cerebellum..niiiice..We haven't been able to take Chilly anywhere because, let's face it, no one wants to hang out with a guy who's tossing up his cookies every five minutes. (no, that is not a gross exaggeration...well, it's gross, but not an exaggeration...) Plus, for some bizarre reason, Chilly gives it everything he's got...like he's trying out for some disgusting world record on who can do this the loudest. Gackety gack and more gack...Anyhoo....
I decided to treat Irish Dancer Girl to a movie (after I confirmed the sale of my kidney to pay for the tickets) to bring a smile to her face. Chilly wanted to go along....uh~oh...Irish Dancer Girl was pretty clear that Pink Bucket would not be welcome. In her words, "Dad, the movie isn't called Cloudy With a Chance of V..."(well, you get the idea...) So, Chilly ventured out without PB. Thank Goodness! It was a successful trip...hallelujah!
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was FANTASTIC! We loved it! Definitely worth the kidney sacrifice! I highly recommend it! We will be purchasing the DVD when it comes out. It was absolutely delightful!
It was the first time that Chilly has ever been able (due to his many health complications) to go to a movie with Irish Dancer Girl at a movie theater. It was a very special day. Chilly was pretty overwhelmed with the reality that we may not have many of these special outings ahead of us and that we really need to soak it all in while we do. It was a day filled with many emotions, but much joy. (Looking forward to more outings without the pink bucket!)
