I have been following your TR's and really enjoy reading them and seeing your wonderful pics!

So, you have answered my question...where is my favorite server?
Branislav from Croatia-was that your server at Palo?

We loved him on our first cruise on the Magic in 2010. He was our MDR server. We were hoping he would be on the Fantasy in April for our next cruise. Guess I can put in my dining rotation request now!

The dinner actually looks good, but I'm not an adventurous eater at all, so I would have played it safe and not been wowed either.

You look awesome in your black dress though!

Thank you so much and yes, I believe that was him. He was really nice, but he seemed a bit confused to us. BUT we are a confusing kind of group!

It was decent food, thats for sure. But I am a cheapy, so it really needed to wow me. Now the Dreams brunch, ooooh so good.

Thanks. You know I had the generic form of spanks on under it and it was slippery on the dress and the dress kept riding up while I sat. I might've been giving people behind me a spanx show.

So my goal this week was to work on the TR. I had very good intentions and even have pictures ready, I just need to write it up. That was my plan yesterday, after I got some work done.
Well you know what they say about the best laid plans.....
Skip went to the Dr yesterday to have his hip looked at again. For those who don't know, he had is right hip replaced in early Jan. He has had his left hip replaced twice, once in 2010 and then again in 2011 when he had nothing but troubles and eventually found out the replacement wasn't attaching. That was a nightmare. And this hip was done with a new procedure, MUCH easier healing process, etc. Call me skeptic, but I just know our luck and had my doubts. Plus the fact that Skip was out working within 3 days of being home.
Well over a week ago he said the incision hurt and it was red all around it. They gave him some antibiotic cream to apply. Not to get into too many gross details, but we had to change bandages a couple of times a day and it was looking gross.
He went for his check up yesterday and came home and handed me a paper with his surgery time. Yep, I am at the hospital once again. He was not healing and infected. They went in and cleaned it all out and sewed him up from the inside out. He has been out for over an hour now, and I should see him in about an hour or so.
Basically he is supposed to be good and take it easy. He will have some sort of wound vac in him to keep things clean and from more infections coming back.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I think we have some hard days ahead of us. He HAS to stop smoking or he may not heal at all or put back in the hospital. That is not going to be easy for him or for me living with him. If you hear of a wife murdering her dairy farmer husband .....well you don't know me!
I do plan to try and get at least one update up this week yet, but I am not sure how many I can do. If things go smoothly then I will keep going, if it's rough, then I will post when I can and I will finish eventually. It just might take time. I am hoping that things will be smooth and he'll rest and I won't have to wait on him hand and foot too much.

No biggie. I have a pretty strong stomach. You just hold to your end of the deal and don't send pictures... and we'll be good!

Or maybe you could just start a hospital trip report. Skip would LOVE that, don't you think?

Bless your heart! I was wondering why you had been so "quiet" this week. I'll be praying for you! Hoping Skip starts to feel better quickly!!!

Jen, I hate to hear that Skip had to have yet another surgery. I'll keep him and you in my prayers! It sounds like he has a tough row to hoe. Hopefully, he'll realize that he needs to take it easy and stop smoking. I've never been addicted to anything so I don't really know how hard it is to stop something like smoking but I can imagine that it'll be tough.

I'm sorry you didn't love Palo for dinner. I have heard the Brunch is really wonderful, so that settles it for me. I am going to try for Palo Brunch!

I so want to take a picture of it and send it to you! it's pretty gross and when we lifted up the gown to look at it after I went in the room he about flipped out. And he is mad he is hooked up to a hose and machine.

Thanks. If he behaves, he should get better. I think we have scared him a bit now. He realizes he could lose his leg if he doesn't obey.

Thanks, but his name is Skip. I have to laugh that you said John though. My ex husband and father to my son (who is in his 20's) name was John. My second child is 20 and I wasn't married to her dad, but his name is John too. I have swore off anyone named John for the rest of my life!

I tell you, if we didn;t have bad luck, we wouldn't have any. Skip thinks his knees are going bad too. He asked if he should say something to the Dr today and say something like "I think I need both my knees done, so should we plan on 4 more surgeries then?"
I am a smoker too, but I don't smoke nearly as much as he does. And I can go for long periods when I have to without it. I have quit SEVERAL times and for long periods too. And stupidly go back. If he does make it, I am going to try and do this as well. It's so much better for all of us.
