All about my boyfriend, Bob

This coming Thursday I will have my right knee operated on. I tore the meniscus last year and have lived with the darn thing, thinking the pain would either go away or I could live with it. Neither has happened. I walk around in a manner that reaps pain in other’s eyes. I moan at night and groan during the day. My disposition is horrid, sometimes, and the pain cloud over my head is ever present. Why would anyone want to love me, let alone be with me? Ask my boyfriend, Bob, he thinks I’m fantastic. He wouldn’t change a thing. He loves me just the way I am (except he would like to see me lose weight. I know this because he said so. That’s another entry for another time…you don’t want me to go there, not here. This is a love letter). Anyway, Bob has gone out and bought all the food I love to eat, and other items I may need, so I can be comfortable while I recuperate from the operation at his house. He is such a dear. I have bored him to no end with anxious chatter about the operation, going under anesthesia, the doctor’s qualifications, the recovery time, my future, and heaven knows what else. In my mind, it was bad enough that I ran myself ragged caring for my daughter and mother these past weeks, and not see him, but he does not complain; he just keeps on loving me and telling me how happy he is to have found me. This is a man who loves me. Sometimes I wish I can love myself as much as he loves me.

Bob sounds like a gem! Hi Bob! (sip) Extra points if you get that reference....

I hope all goes well with the surgery. I'll expect some loopy entries while you're still on pain meds.

Seriously, I know everything will be fine, and I hope your recuperation goes quickly and without complications.

Hugs, Beth

You will feel so much better once you get that knee taken care of. My son has had both knees done. He said it is just great to bve rid of the b[pain. Your bou friend sounds like he cares a lor about you. Take care and let him spoil you. Lucy

I hope you can get some relief from the pain. It can really getcha down after a while. Hey, I think the majority of the human race needs to lose weight. So look at it this way, we are in a majority, not a minority. ;) Hugs, Kelly

Its wonderful that you found someone who loves you as much as you deserve. Its hard loving a caregiver...cause they are so used to giving instead of receiving. Being a caregiver myself, I know the feeling but doesnt it feel good. I wish you a speedy recovery. I assure you, you wont regret the surgery.

Thank you for your kind thoughts today. Brain scan, not fun but not to bAD.I am just waiting now for the results which may take a while. Lucy

Lucy said...

Karen this is for the comment you left this morning. Thank you so much for dropping by. Yes indeed between that Beagle and that husband there is never a dull moment. Hope everything is going well for you. I get emails from some who comment but I do not know what is going on. Yahoo was not letting me access my Gmail acct. So far things are comming through good. Lucy

Janie said...

Hmmm really weird! I have had to mannually add the last 10-15 journals that I follow? Saw your comment on Jane's, checked and sure enough... you were not there? Glad that you are going to have your right knee operated on. Hard telling what I would be saying and doing if I had to have knee operation. lol Prayers, Janie
