Get Well Soon, Viv!

24 Nov

6WS friend Viv is in hospital

I know a lot of you visit Viv through Six Word Saturday, so I thought you’d like to know she’s in hospital.

The phone rang yesterday:

TB: Hello?  Whoisitwhaddyawantstopbotheringmewiththesestupidcoldcalls!

Viv: It’s Viv.

TB: Bev?

Viv: Viv!

TB: Bev who?

Viv: I’m going to climb out of this hospital bed and onto a plane and knock the dumb out of you if you don’t open your ears.  Viv!

Okay, I might have made that last bit up, which you all know because you know how lovely and sweet and generous and kind and caring Viv is; but I don’t do mushy, so I make stuff up to mask my anxiety.

Viv’s main problem is that she’s been unhooked from wi-fi.  The only cure for that is to get out of hospital ASAP and come home.

Get well soon, my lovely Viv.

    Lovely to meet you and a great post…LOL
    I don’t know Viv yet, but wishing her all the best

    Get well soon Viv, we all demand it!

    Being sick is bad enough but no internet is dreadful. Get well soon Viv!

    Oh, I do hope this is neither serious nor long-lasting. Viv is one of the most generous and frequent readers I have. I know that putting it that way sounds selfish, but I say it more in praise of her kindness and consideration for others. I hope she’s back among us soon!


    • thehutts November 25, 2012 at 08:55 #

      Now as talking to Mum on phone – she says ‘Thank you Ron you do me honour.’


  6. Robyn November 24, 2012 at 11:45 #

    You sound like a good friend to Viv. I hope sharing your laughter will help her feel better soon!

    Oh dear…poor Viv…do hope it is nothing serious.

    Get well soon Viv. Thanks for letting us know, Tilly, you are a good friend (is that too mushy?) No apologies . . .

    I was wondering what you were talking about because Viv is right below you on Cate’s list, but then I went and read Viv’s post and realise it’s not Viv but her daughter posting for her. (I can’t imagine one of my boys blogging for me – but then after reading some of the rubbish they write on Facebook I’m not sure I’d want them to either)

    Hope she’s okay and well on the road to recovery


    • thehutts November 25, 2012 at 08:27 #

      Thanks – I can’t easily visit Mum being in a different country but I can give her a remote Wi-fi by telephone so she doesn’t lose touch with all her friends.

      You will quickly learn that I do not have my mother’s linguistic skills – in French or English.

      Must now go and ring her as I forgot to check Tilly’s blog yesterday and she will want to know what you are all up to!


  10. Dana November 24, 2012 at 13:01 #

    I hope she’s feeling better soon.


  11. misswhiplash November 24, 2012 at 13:43 #

    Oh poor Viv…send her some Maltesers..then she will soon be better…give her our love when you contact her….


  12. mairedubhtx November 24, 2012 at 13:45 #

    I hope Viv is better soon and home and tormenting you again soon.


  13. sharechair November 24, 2012 at 14:50 #

    Get well, soon, Viv! Hospitals are no fun. Hope she is feeling better, soon. Please give her our best when you talk with her…


  14. Wayne November 24, 2012 at 14:57 #

    Get well soon, we miss you!


  15. Food Stories November 24, 2012 at 15:03 #

    Hope Viv is feeling better soon and back on wifi … By the way, I’m an ICU nurse so I especially loved the graphic 🙂


  16. gigihawaii November 24, 2012 at 15:26 #

    Oh, poor Viv. Get well, Viv!


  17. laurieanichols November 24, 2012 at 15:42 #

    I hope that Viv gets better very soon, her poor hubby must be beside himself. You’re a great friend to take on the grammatical and technical responsibilities for Viv’s blog, I saw Viv’s post earlier, hee hee.


  18. terry1954 November 24, 2012 at 16:31 #

    i thought i would crack up at seeing the crack!!!!!


  19. brenda November 24, 2012 at 16:48 #

    i do hope she is feeling better soon… and you are such a great friend!


  20. restlessjo November 24, 2012 at 17:21 #

    What a good mate you are. Read “Viv’s” post first,and am still puzzling how her daughter accomplished this. Were you responsible?
    Did you just meet through blogging, Tilly, or is there another connection? Hugs to you all.


    • thehutts November 25, 2012 at 08:36 #

      Mum taught me to blog before we went on a 3 month sabbatical to the Turks and Caicos Islands in 2010/11 – it was a requirement of my sabbatical leave. Duncan now does more blogging than me but between us we do write/manage 3 blogs for public consumption.

      As far as I am aware the only other connection between Tilly and Mum is the OU. Tilly?

      And if you want to meet Mum and see Northumberlandia she will hopefully be making her own trip to see ‘The Lady’ sometime between the 11th March and 13th March – she booked her flights last week and I know would love to meet you!


      • Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife November 26, 2012 at 12:33 #

        Yes, we met via an online critiquing forum set up by another Open University student.

        As soon as I get my diary on Christmas Day, I’m putting those dates in!


  21. siggiofmaine November 24, 2012 at 17:24 #

    Had read Viv’s daughter’s post, then right to yours…
    Hope she is up and at the computer soon … for her own sanity !
    That last cartoon is a five star cartoon…love it !
    Please keep us posted on ViV …you are a good and special friend.

    Peace and love,


  22. viveka November 24, 2012 at 18:06 #

    VIV … go each on yourself and let – those handsome and sexy doctors take over. Missing you here at Tilly’s – GREAT WELL SOON and be too much hands on, with those doctors – hopefully George Clonney will turn up – he would heal much better than any medicine on earth, at least on me.


  23. SchmidleysScribbling November 24, 2012 at 20:01 #

    Get well soon Viv or Tilly will have a nervous breakdown. Dianne


    • thehutts November 25, 2012 at 09:27 #

      And me – talking to Mum now and she is laughing lots at all your comments as I read them to her. S


  24. slpmartin November 24, 2012 at 20:13 #

    Sorry to hear about Viv…hopefully she gets home soon.


  25. Karen S. November 24, 2012 at 20:25 #

    Oh that’s too bad- sending well wishes!


  26. kateshrewsday November 24, 2012 at 20:45 #

    Fingers crossed, Tilly, that Viv is out of hospital and ship-shape very soon. Lots of love to you both.


  27. Inger-M November 24, 2012 at 21:33 #

    Best wishes to Viv!


  28. Tinman November 24, 2012 at 21:43 #

    Hope she gets well soon, she’s the best.


  29. Penelope November 24, 2012 at 21:46 #

    what a great friend Viv has in you & obviously other SWS I am new to SWS from this blog, but wishing it to be a speedy recovery for Viv.


  30. Ruthi aka abitosunshine November 24, 2012 at 22:54 #

    Oh, how sweet your six words are for your friend! I do hope Viv is out of the hospital soon but I am sure your bit of humor will help her out of the doldrums.


  31. adinparadise November 25, 2012 at 00:25 #

    Wishing Viv the speediest of recoveries. Love her writing. Love that last cartoon. 😆
    (I just did a DIY post for you.)


  32. Linda November 25, 2012 at 03:58 #

    Well laughter is good medicine…soooo you are the laughing house wife, and you will help Viv to feel better soon! These cartoons brought smiles to me. Thanks!


  33. thehutts November 25, 2012 at 09:37 #

    Mum says thanks to you all – she is fine but goes for an angiogram tomorrow in Caen so will be incommunicado until Tuesday and doesn’t know if she will be in the same room when she comes back to the local hospital. For those of you with her telephone number – it may change. She might even get wi-fi but then Jock will have to deliver the right cables.

    Tilly – back to you for the editing of all my comments.

    Mum is teasing me as I am having to ask her how to spell things.

    Mum please be home soon.



  34. Melanie Connor November 25, 2012 at 11:52 #

    Aw get well soon Viv, hope you’re up and out of hospital quickly. XXX



  35. Perfecting Motherhood November 26, 2012 at 08:08 #

    Well, I hope Viv’s doctors allow her to laugh because this phone conversation, whether it happened or not, was hilarious. My good wishes to Viv for getting better very soon.


  36. Al November 26, 2012 at 21:21 #

    You should go over there and knock the sick out of her!


  37. Janie Jones December 2, 2012 at 23:43 #

    A little piece of advice for Viv, ask for a second gown so one can be worn forwards and one backwards, this avoids ICU syndrome. Hope she’s well soon!!


  38. eof737 December 5, 2012 at 09:25 #

    Hope she’s feeling better…


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
