Don't worry about the popcorn, Tuck, as I am saving the boy a seat at Thelma's with all the non-fat biscuits, low- cal gravy, fat-free ham and decaffeinated coffee he can handle. If he behaves himself, I will have Thelma make her special Eggbeaters omelet for him. If he's really good I will have Thelma show him her butterfly tattoo, but then again he's probably not ready for that yet.

Just talked with Karen and she asked that I get on the line and let you know that Pat is off the vent and they have actually had him from bed to chair and back and are talking about taking him out of ICU as soon as tomorrow. This can only be the result of the good thoughts and prayers that his mudcatters have sent his way through Cyberspace. Pat had written a whole page that he wanted posted to you but Karen had configure problems at the computer tonight and couldn't get on the net. Karen is very tired and the fact that she couldn't get on the net was sort of the last straw in a long and frantic week.

I am flying back up for the weekend and will check tomorrow and if Pat is able, I will take my laptop to him so that he can get back to mudcatting. Of course, he will have to get back to the PC really fast because when I let loose of the laptop, I tend to go into withdrawal in a real hurry (like in about 30 seconds).

Thanks again for giving us such comfort. maw or known to spaw as Clarence. (I'm sure he willl be happy to explain that one to you)

Hey Catspaw, I reckon you'll be eating the same stuff that got ya this far in life and more power to ya. 10 years ago when I thought I had a heart attack a dietican was dispatched to give me a life plan. Her idea of a "snack" was one cup of popcorn. I had to set her off, my spirit needing amend. I told her" o'course ya mean un-popped, quarter stick of butter, one and a half teaspoons of popcorn salt popped in three or four tablespoons of Veggie oil. ( Can't help it folk's, it is damn good). Indignant, she said " No, one cup of air popped, non salted, non buttered popcorn." I told her I would rather die. Maybe not good advice Catspaw, and please don't follow it, but it was fun to watch her face when I told her that.

katspaw, wish I could send you takeout meals, but Ohio is a bit far from Vermont. Alison, I am NOT going to use you for a consultant (smile) Seriously, if you do want soome relatively healthy recipes that actually taste good, I can send em along. As for me, I get done cooking vegetarian food and head for the Chinese takeout around the corner and get pork fried rice. Ah me, the secrets of a chef of vegetarian food, but not persuasion.

Glad to hear about the continued progress. I just smile when I think of what will flow from that keyboard once those paws get back on the keys.

Oh, and Karen, I forgot to add these tips from the "Household Hints" section of the Kitchen Guide (pre-plastic era).

Kitchen Garbage Can, One of the most convenient new appliances for the kitchen is the kitchen garbage can. You merely step on the pedal, and the lid flies up automatically.

House cleaning, Irritation to the hands as a result of using naphtha for cleaning can be avoided if first you rub and work a little vinegar well into the skin.

and....

How to take Unpleasant Medicine
When the medicine is particularly unpleasant to take, hold a piece of ice in the mouth for two minutes before taking. It will not taste nearly so bad.

OK, now, recipes to build up Catspaw's health (or at least to give him something to chew on).

This is from my collection of my mom's old cookbooks. The Kitchen Guide, American, no date found in it, but old and falling apart:

Lenten Loaf (mostly rice and canned salmon)

Little Pigs in Blankets or Oyster Bundles (24 large oysters wrapped in 24 pieces of bacon)

Fried Frog's Legs (hindquarters only)

Liver Dumplings (Skin 1/2 pound of calf's liver and remove every paticle of tough fibre. Chicken liver may be used instead of calf's liver, as well as heart and tender parts of gizzard. Cook bread and water to a paste. Add seasonings, egg, and finely chopped liver. Form into balls and cook in hot soup. Very nutritious.) (!!!)

Turtle Soup (Wash the turtle, cut the skin loose from under the shell, skin legs and neck and remove all fat, save the liver. ..... it doesn't say what to do with the liver after you 'save' it. Any suggestions, catspaw?)

City Chickens - for six (2 pork tenderloins, equal amount veal steak, cracker crumbs, 2 cups hot water, 1 cup rich milk, 1 or 2 beaten eggs. Cut meat in one and a half inch squares, alternate pieces on wooden skewers until 6 are used. Roll each chicken (?!) in seasoned eggs and crumbs. Allow to stand for 2 hours to harden. Then, brown well on all sides in skillet, remove chicken (!), place in roaster, put hot water in the spider, rinse well, and pour in roaster. Cover and bake slowly 2 hours. Make gravy with milk and season well.).... it doesn't say if it tastes like chicken.

A little recipe for Catspaw. Culled, with great regard for authenticity, from a Scottish cookbook called "Tried Favourites Cookery Book" by Mrs. E.W. Kirk. In its twenty-third and enlarged edition, after sales of six hundred and forty six thousand. This book I bought from a second hand bookstall, and it had never been used. Possibly never been read. It has twenty-four recipes for various scones, oven or girdle (griddle).

Before I get to the scone recipe, let me quote some more gems from the work (which, by the way, has 6 American recipes, corn bread, corn pone, breakfast muffins, griddle cakes, popovers and crullers. No grits. It also makes prolific use of odd patent foods, such as Plasmon powder (?), and has antique advertisements for surviving and lost products. Some of them belong to that part of the British cuisine which, in 'spaw's words, belong in the garbage bin.

Hough and Macaroni: This is recommended to those thrifty wives who like to make a piece of meat go as far as is consistent with nutritious feeding.

Shape of cold fish and potatoes.

Bomb-Shell (From an old soldier of 1820) This is steak cooked in a scone dough in a cloth. "Very appetising and economical."

Remains of hare.

To dress a lamb's head and pluck. (take out the eyes - it won't see you through the week, but what the heck!)

Half-pay pudding - "without exaggeration, it may be said that this pudding is equal in nutriment to 1 and a half pounds beef steak."

Hygienic pudding

Restorative Meat Jelly

Artificial Asses' Milk

Sir W. Gull's cough prescription

Buchanan's Prune Paste (Invaluable in the home)

Apple Jam that will keep for years

Matrimony Jam

Scones: I lb flour, 2 oz butter 2 oz sugar (if made for tea) half oz cream of tartar, quarter oz bicarbonate of soda, half pint milk or (preferably) buttermilk. (be careful about milk quantities - I think American pints are a little different).

Rub fat into flour, add cream of tartar (and sugar, if using). Dissolve soda in milk, and mix with flour to a stiff dough. Roll out about an inch thick, cut into the needed size, and bake in a moderate oven about 15 minutes, or on a girdle. Serve hot.

On the subject of pronouncing scones, there was an editor of a pronouncing dictionary interviewed the other week who singled out this word for comment. " In the north, they usually say sconns, but scones (to rhyme with stones) when they want to sound posh. In the south, they usually say (this one defeats me, but is halfway between scones and scawns) but sconns when they want to sound posh."

However they're said, if the doctors permit, enjoy!

More good news everyone....THE VENT IS HISTORY The thing came out and he has been talking ever since. Our teenager wanted to know if we could keep a spare at home to shut him up. Tired of parental lectures I guess. The aneurysm is stable. His lungs are improving. I asked the pulmonary specialist for specifics and we were dealing with bronchitis/emphysema exacerbated by congestive heart failure(or maybe the other way around). Its hard to tell which came first. So then the aorta says, "Look what I can do"! He is doing great and the doctor said he will be home soon. AMAZING!!! I asked him he had a message for everyone...he said no, but watch out, I saw the wheels turning. I think he wants to deliver message himself. I just realized I am falling asleep at the computer. Would like to keep going, but am very tired. Got home and my teenager jumped out at me from behind the van. I thought they'd have to put me in the hosp, or the kid which I started throwing things at. I don't think taco bell and donuts for dinner are very heart healthy, do you?

All your prayers, energy and love worked wonders.

deliriously yours, Katspaw

thanks for the update Karen, and for the good news. It seems that old 'Paw has cornered the market in wonerful women, he even gets a great nurse! Perhaps I'll have to move to the US. By the way, since no-one else has asked, now he's a bit stroger, can you talk to the vet about getting him "fixed". I'm having to use a computer at work as the smell still lingers on my official Mudcat machine!

Seriously though, I think what we have learned about what a wonderful family you all are over the last week or so has ruined his reputation forever. Just hope he doesn't have a relapse trying to spray in the corner long distance to try and restore it!

Best wishes to you all and especially to Pat for a continuing and speedy recovery.

Them folks was right helpful, apickin' us out the water an' all. Got the truck most near dried out too. Only trace left is thet little minner that swims around in the water in the dash. He goes from the 10 to the 80 in the speedometer back and forth. Some police feller tole Paw thet in order to keep aheadin' in the right direction he needs to keep the sun on his right side, problem is he tole him thet in the mornin', come about one o'clock paw makes a goldern u-turn so's he can keep the sun on his right like he was tole. Lucky fer us he don't drive near as fast after noon so's I reckon we make about 10 miles a day in the right direction....Cain't tell thet ole man nuthin nohow.....Ya'll tell Catspaw to hang in there, help's a commin'....Soon as it gets to be my turn ta drive I'll make some goldurn headway, you wait'n see...Contrary old fart...grumble....grumble....

Karen,

Thanks for the updates. The Mudcat is one of my first priorities when I get home from work, and since Pat's illness, it has become a higher priority.

I haven't met Catspaw, but I have dearly loved his contribution to this Forum. I have grown to care about him and was real sorry you all couldn't make it to DC for Rick's concert. That was the only disappointment for the entire evening.

I am glad to hear that the news has all been uphill since 'Spaws crash. I guess he never completed high school biology or he would have known it is safer to dissect frogs than aneuryisms.

I do hope he goes "over the edge" in his recovery!

Love,

Nurse Rachel sounds like a gem.

Well Catspaw, I'm a little slow coming around to this, that's 'cuz I'm one of those guys who doesn't generally know what to say in times like this (except stuff like.. "think maybe we oughta just put 'im out of his misery?). Sounds like you'll soon be back on the forum, so why dontcha just cash in one of those nine lives and get back to business? Or are you just too dadblame stubborn to cash in a Cats life for a little old aneurated whatchamacallit?

Honestly, I'm looking forward to more "kitty litter" on my video screen.....

Frank i.t.s.

Great news, Karen! And now I've gone and developed a cyber-crush on your sister as well as your mother. Are there any more great people in your family? Thank goodness Caroline shares my feelings about you all (I've been reading these postings to her), it prevents unreasonable jealousy. Glad you decided to ignore the restrictive rules, too, so that ol' Catspaw can have some music to keep his mind out of the litter-box. We sure do miss his imaginative excursions here.

Sandy

K-atspaw, this crisis for Pat and you and all your loved ones has really touched our hearts and made us so aware of how "connected" we have all become by sharing this forum. I am so relieved to hear the good report, and happy you can join us here.

Catspaw update, I told Pat that since he couldn't hang around you catters, I was taking his place. I think he is going through mudcat withdrawal. He asked me what I thought of you guys and I really couldn't find the words to tell him what you have given me this week. Pat was sitting up twice today, his O2 is at 97-100%, and all vitals are good. He and the doc decided one more day on the vent would allow him to be even stronger so tomorrow should be the day. I spent the day by his side and we both did some napping. I also spent a lot of time making to-do lists. I never do the things on the list, I just make the list. I'm not worried about the little things, they'll all fall into line. My focus is to give our catspaw the best I have to give and bring him home healthy and happy. All equipment at the hospital has to be approved through engineering before use. I waited two days and when Rachel(wonderful nurse) found it had not been approved she called them. They told her it was an illegal piece of equipment and could not be approved. I decided to break the rules and she decided she didn't see a thing and Catspaw got his music. I will remember forever the love and prayers you have sent our way. I will be home every night now to visit and bring you continued good news. forever close to my heart, "K"atspaw

Well, after an hour of crying my eyes out I now know why Pat and Karen love you guys! Your messages have touched my heart! Your prayers and support have been totally incredible. Pat has been telling me about this site for so long and I wish I had looked it up sooner! I especially love the Spaw-in-law "stuff". What can I say, we have an incredible bunch of women in our family! Karen is really hanging in there, as is Pat. I want to thank all of you for caring, loving and praying with us. We sure needed it! I told Karen a couple of days ago, Pat never could do anything halfway so he has to drive it to the edge and be a miracle man to pull it out, and he really is!! Talk to you soon, Love,'Spaw-sister-in-law.

I've been fishing in northern Michigan for the last several days where a turkey strutted by muttering about Big Mick blubbering about his cat. I felt like I got punched in the stomach when I read the news. I am tocuhed by the genuine love and caring seen here. I hope Big Mick, Karen and paw-in-law know how much we appreciate their updates. I will triple pray and meditate to make up for lost time. Continued good news.

Oh, Banjer, Reg, whoever you ARE! Thanks for making me LMAO!!!

I've a suggestion, phoaks. We know 'Spaw is gonna git a lot of them cd thingys. And, I know he'll 'preciate them. But I also was thinkin' (scary, I know!) about the extra expenses he and Karen must be having what with being away from home and all and it occured to me another thing we might all think about sending is prepaid telephone cards. Not that we'd all expect a phone call from His Mightiness or anythin'. Just to help in a little way with whatever they need. There must be others they keep in touch with who are not "permanently attached to 'pewters" like us and, when he does get ready for a laptop, maybe that would help with that, too. Just a thought.
