On a rather less serious note.... When the inhalation therapist put the vibrator on her back, Mary or Kevin said, "She loves it!" The inhalation therapist (a he) said, "All the ladies love it." Mary nearly choked. She said that he didn't even seem to know what he had just said. Well, there you have it, the answer to what women want. Don't say you didn't know.

Several people have asked how she got her nickname, Miz Hot Ta' Molly. Here is the story. On Wednesday or Thursday last week, when we were all numb and exhausted, Uncle Peter, Aunt Lori, Aunt Sarah, and Kevin (I think that is the correct roster) were out shopping for changes of clothes, vitamins, and the correct pacifier, they decided to get a beer. Slouching over the table, Aunt Sarah slurred, "To Molly," and raised her glass. The three others, also slouching, heard, "Tamale."

As told to me, this is how the conversation went...

"To Molly."


"To Molly."


"Tamale? No, TO Molly."

"Tamale?" .... and on it went until Sarah clearly said, "TO MOLLY!" And, amidst a much need laugh fest, Ta' Molly got her nickname.

When Kevin or Mary let me know about the extubation (and if I am not knee deep in a game of "Connect Four" with Noah and Nicholaus), I will get another update out today. Take care all and take a moment to be grateful for the good things in life. Dianne

Get Well Soon, Molly
