Hello again. Hank here.
Well, it’s been a pretty exciting day for me. I learned how to turn the clock radio alarm on. It was set for 5:00 a.m. and Big HM couldn’t figure out how to stop it! You should have seen it! I laughed so hard I almost needed stitches! I was going to try to turn on the radio part tonight but somehow, it got unplugged. I’m sure Big HM will fix that when he sees it.
The second thing is: I created a new game! I call it “Xtreme Rodeo”. (Note the spelling; that will be good for marketing purposes.) The object is to run along the back of the sofa and then, using a Hairless Monkey’s head for a springboard, launch yourself to the next piece of furniture. Talk about a rush! You can’t estimate the position of HM’s head at point of contact because it moves all over the place; and it’s tough to concentrate on your landing spot with all that yelling going on but let me tell you, it’s worth it! If only I had some catnip, it would be like Olympic snowboarding!
There is one drawback though: DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS TWICE IN THE SAME DAY! It could mean an immediate banishment to the laundry room for a ‘time-out’. And that’s the voice of experience speaking. I suggest spending the rest of day playing ‘push-stuff-off-the-counter’ or any other ‘low-risk’ game. If your HM is fast, try waiting at least 20 minutes between sporting venues.
Little HM is now at St. Joseph’s Hospital. She’s in Room 320(4). She had a good ride over from TB Regional and the attending nurse gave her a hug and said she was a good patient. She also saw the surgeon today. He told her that her left leg was so bad he considered postponing doing the other leg as it was exhausting for him. We’re so glad he finished. He also said she’s doing phenomenal and her blood count is back up too.
There’s a small bonus at St. Joe’s too: TV is free! That should offset the extra taxi fare Big HM has to pay to visit her.
Well, I have to get going now because Big HM is coming to use the computer … and if he sees I can type he’ll start asking for all kinds of things. And then I'll never get a moment's peace!
