My Dad is having heart issues.
This is why there was no show this week.
I have been trying to be around him as much as possible.
Laying in 3 different hospitals for 3 weeks, waiting for tests and doctors' opinions to align is not fun either. The problem is that my Dad's hospital is in London, Ontario, which is 2 hours away. So, the show will resume next week, as will my father's normal life after he finally gets some heart surgery done.
To lighten things up a bit, I have supplied this photo.
I knew my Dad would recover when I started seeing humourous things in the hospital. This is but one example.
I direct your attention to the procedure that the hospital calls a "diva".
It's the third one from the top. It apparantly takes 40 minutes to complete.
Is this just the waiting time for a woman who is whipping her hair around and making her entourage go get Twinkies and bottles water for her?
If a diva has major attitude with the receptionist, is she given a penalty (like in football) of 45 minutes (flat rate) until she curbs te attitude?
P.S. What the hell is a "fistulagram"? Sounds like something Shane needs, but wouldn't enjoy...much.
Love You Dad.

Crappy to hear - hope all is well Fistulagram does sound like some sort rectal/fist combination...30 minutes - the 1.5 hour if plasty is required - hmmmmm we can say that is plastic surgery in case the doc has a big fist? (or call it Angioplasty but that is not as funny)
Greetings Tom...I am so sorry to hear that your Dad has hit a rough patch with his health. I do hope that his surgery is a success... With regard to a fistulagram, Dictionary.com says this is one of the meanings: An abnormal duct or passage resulting from injury, disease, or a congenital disorder that connects an abscess, cavity, or hollow organ to the body surface or to another hollow organ. In a word...Blech! Now about the \\\"gram\\\" part of the word...that leaves me to believe that it is a procedure in which they stick something into the body. Sounds evil...what is it with doctors and their probing,and inserting things into the body that just don\\\'t belong?!? I think in order to be a doctor you must be part alien. All the best to you and your Dad...Hi to Shane! Sparrow
