Best wishes Richard!

Good luck, and take some spices. I think they try and sterilize the food in the hospital, before they give it to you.

Thanks guys. I am taking my 22 year old niece as my escort.
And I always get ugly nurses.
Hence the 22 year old escort.
Spice the food! I will be on a liquid diet cuz my throat will be to sore ta swallow.
I hope they keep me asleep fore a week till most the pain is gone.
I got enough fat to sustain me for that long.
Be sides as soon as I am conscious I am out of there as they haven't any smoking rooms.
Than I can seriously get started on my liquid diet. LOL

Take care, Sir...and remember what they say...when one spends time confined to a hospital bed, all the nurses look pretty darn good after awhile.

You missed the start of Iditarod in Anchorage; but isn't there a big surgical nurse's convention, or something interesting, happening while you're there?

This musher is from down your way; that danged Iditarod race is a hard ordeal, esp at 61 years old!

TAKOTNA, Alaska (AP)— A 61-year-old rookie Iditarod musher turned up on the wrong trail Thursday, hours after race officials started to search for the woman thought lost along a treacherous stretch.

Deborah Bicknell of Juneau was spotted from the air driving her team through Ptarmigan Pass, a route formerly used in the race, said race spokesman Chas St. George. "It appears she took the wrong trail.".

She was seen driving her dog team 18 miles from the Rohn checkpoint. Both she and her dogs were tired but otherwise in good condition, race officials said after she arrived in Rohn.

Bicknell, who was in last place before getting lost, planned to rest before analyzing her situation Friday, St. George said.

Sandy Bicknell, the musher's husband, was with Iditarod officials in Anchorage when he received the news that she had been spotted.

Eighty-two teams officially started the race in Willow. Nineteen have scratched in a race that is notable so far for a tough trail that has mushers withdrawing with broken bones and busted sleds. The winner is expected to arrive in Nome on Tuesday or later.

For coming in first, the winner of the 2007 Iditarod will get about $69,000 in prize money and a pickup truck worth more than $40,000. Mackey drives a 14-year-old truck.
