Comments: If it's the Cath Lab, it must be Tuesday

Dear Mamamontezz,

My thoughts are with Delftsman and you and your family. Please give him my best wishes. I would try to be a stern Grandma and order him to take his medicine, watch his diet and exercise, but it wouldn't work. I can't even get him to agree that a 30% embedded tax is just as deceptive (even more so) than tax withholding--so obviously I have no influence. I hope you and your family are holding up and taking care of yourselves as well.

As someone who firmly believes moderation is for sissies, I must say this:


D-man, take your medication, dammit.

You can still eat your favorite stuff, just in smaller portions farther apart.

If you don't have one, get yourself a treadmill, stick it in front of the tee vee, and reward yourself with a nice hard cheese after treadmilling while watching the Mating Rituals Of Rhinos (who the hell wants to see John McCain nekkid anyhoo?) on Discovery.

I won't touch the smoking thing, I'm a Tupac a day man. Well, we both should quit, how's that.

Think about changing your habits, man, or else I will re-install AIM, go back into the Rott Chat Room, and start e-mailing you /d.

You've been warned!

Thanks for keeping us updated. I am once again happy to hear he's doing OK. My wife knows what it's like to hassle with someone who takes his meds for a while then kinda lets it go because "I feel fine, really I do".

Everyone misses him over at the Rott, so tell him to get well(er) and log on when he's up to it.

I would be happy to contribute some enjoyable and healthy recipes...guaranteed to please the most decadent of gluttons. Being one and working for one, I should know.

Get better, buddy. You don't want Lila forcibly medicating you like a housecat do you?

Thanks for the update Lila, glad Bert is still improving, Let him know he's missed out here and to stop being so stubborn and take those meds. Always thinking of you guys and all the problems you've had. Praying for the best.

He'd best start taking them seriously.

Listen to your wife, Delfts.

Delfts now listen please. This is because you are loved, not just by your family but by all of us.

I smoke so we won't go there except for this, (one thing at a time). I hate doctors ok! There are good ones but there are bad ones too. As far as smoking goes can you try and do Light cigs. It does make a difference and they may not be as yummy but at least it is a step forward to not having them be as strong and bad for us.

Now here is the thing Delfts, your blog is outstanding and it took being creative on your part to make it LOOK the way it does besides the posts you make. So because of that I know you have an imagination since you are creative like that. Soooooooo imagine that you do not do what you are told will help you. Not doing what the docs say might cause a stroke,it might be bad enough to leave you unable to do anything.

Imagine sitting in a chair and seeing your wife and daughter and not being able to hug them and tell them you love them.
Imagine sitting there and SEEING your computer and not being able to type anything.
Imagine wearing diappers.

I know this is being dramatic about this but hey things can happen like this and I want you to have every chance in this ole politically correct BS world. I want you around for a very long time.Your wife loves you I can tell and so does your daughter. We love you and the only ones that don't are the liberals so why please them (the liberals) and make them happy if something happens to you.

Now back to the doctor thing.......... ok I said I hate doctors. The best way for them not to be around is to be healthy. To do what it takes to not have to go see one. So please think about it.
