Do you ever have one of those days when nothing happens?
Klaus is still in very critical condition, but bless his big heart he hasn't gotten any worse. Just maintaining - I have to consider that a victory for the day. One in the plus column. The messages that I am receiving now are including stories and photos from some of our crazy times in New York City, Los Angeles, and lots of them from Vienna... I keep telling Klaus that he is going to have to explain more about some of these stories when he wakes up...
Right now Klaus is listening to my ipod. I have not listened to any music since this occurred, and I usually always have my ipod on. On the way back to the hospital after giving Bogart his evening walkie, I absentmindedly turned on the radio. Now here I am going to show my age - they were playing Whip It by Devo - and I started to cry and sing the song at the top of my lungs.
When a problem comes along - you must whip it
Before the cream sits out too long - you must whip it
When something's going wrong - you must whip it
Yes, I'm sure it looked as ridiculous as it sounds. Of course I was making some of the whipping motions as well. But what it did, after the song was over, was make me realize something that might be missing - music. So when I got back to the hospital I asked the nurse if I might let Klaus listen to my ipod. Well these are the fabulous nurses who let me bring Bogart into the ICU so the ipod was an easy sell.
Right now he is listening to Roxy Music's Avalon. It's my very favorite make-out album. All slow-ish songs, sexy Bryan Ferry voice...
I hope he's enjoying it. I'm enjoying thinking about him enjoying it.
