Bloviating Zeppelin: A Brief Reflection

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

A Brief Reflection

My Dad made it through his fifth surgery in 1.5 years. He is now 86. I find that statistic miraculous. I should be lucky enough to make it to 65, much less any age involving surgery. In 2005 he survived a colostomy and its resection. He now has an ileostomy. I have to tell him he must now relive everything he survived last year. His stay in a skilled nursing facilty. His inability to walk. His dealing with a bag on his stomach. His knowing he (possibly; no guarantee) must undergo another surgery to reconnect segments of his colon. He has survived two malignant tumors. Astounding.

I am on Wait And See status.

That's good news. It sounds like he's a fighter. That what it takes to survive.
