All right! Another VOICE from the outside world for me to talk to!

Hey Big Brother:

It sure is great to hear from you, thanks for leaving me a message and "Get Well Wishes."

In a few hours I go see the doctor to see how I'm doing to get back in school and basketball practice. I better NOT be turned down as I got to play Wedensday night to see if I can be FIRST into the Hall of Fame and IF I might help the team make it to Friday night's District Title game, but first have to win the semi-final or season of over. I don't want that to happen, I know we had a last place finish this season and I've never played on a team in school sports finishing that low, but I'm hoping we can KICK ASS and start a new season these next few weeks, get the school a few trophies maybe and some hardware/medals to wear on our chests.

Whow! People you've talked to having same symptons, etc.? What is going around? Far as I know I'm the only one on our team that has this, whatever it it. But some people around here are having flu & symptons, etc. My Doctors still trying to figure my case out, maybe my immune system was not fully recovered from my last bout, maybe? And some "bug" decided that besides the symptons I had that maybe my life needed to have a little extra excitement added to it, give people a scare (and it sure scared the crap out of me and I didn't need to use the john) and coaching staff, etc.

Good for your Mom chewing your little ass out not staying in bed, etc., to get better sooner, and hope you are fully recovered by now, But of course I had my dad contribute with my mom to lay down the "law" to tell me how I was going to cooperate to get better! Think your dad would have been involved IF your Mom would have asked me to, and even though your ass was safe from NOT get whacked, he still could give you a good ASS CHEWING to get your attention.

After the game I made it to the locker room, felt pain in my chest, like some hit their fist hard at me, and doubled me over and enough to knock me to the floor. Scared the team, and couple of asst. coaches, head coach was still on the floor yet, but somebody raced to get him and my folks.
The medical trainer we had checked me over quick and could see I wasn't in a life threatening situation like a heart attack, but knew I needed to get to the hospital, so they threw my warm basketball pants on me, got me a coat and the Athletic Director at the away school drove me, my folks to hospital nearby and got to ER. Checked over there by doctors, had me do to lung checking exercises, etc. and they did x-rays, etc.
It wasn't too long after that they thought it be best for me to spend the night for treatment and observation, of course I said I wasn't staying if I had to wear a hospital gown and doctors said I could wear my basketball warmup pants, shirts, etc.
It wasn't long before I was informed they needed to give me a shot in the butt! In comes this young lady nurse, probably 30-something (I'm not good age guessing) and informs me she needs to give me "a little shot in your tushy."
Dave I read you my mind, being l8 can't make a fuss, so I thought if she wants to see what a good "athlectic ass" should look like then I'll show her one, mine! While she was getting her shot ready to give, I was laying on my back on the exam table so I rolled over on my stomach and slide my pants down and provided her with a "full moon" and when she returned I told her, "help yourself!"
(Nurse:) "Oh my, it looks like someone is into weightlifting it seems, and it has done them a good really job." (I was thinking, "she's impressed and she's not embarrassed what she's seeing, and didn't even have to give instructions because I was a very cooperative patient."
I told the nurse, " I weight lift in my off season time, and play sports rest of the time and I came in tonight because I collasped after playing in a high school basketball game."
(Nurse:) While applying the alcohol rub she mentioned, "I hope your team won?" as she was about to give me the shot.
I told her, "afraid not, my team and I got our butts kicked and lost the game," just as she was pushing the needle in me.
(Nurse:) "Sorry to hear that, and I hope I didn't hurt your tushy too much?"

You can share and tell Rick about this moment as nobody else has been allowed to be in communication with me at home becauase my phone and computer use has been restricted to me. Nobody else has asked me Dave , about being at the hospital and if I got to "moon" anyone one. Kyle doesn't know about this yet, but I can just hear him now, "Where's Holly with her camera when Joel makes a Kodak Moment available. She could have captured it on film."


Now, that would have been a moment to capture on film. I wonder how much money KYle could make selling prints of it? Worth a million dollars, you think?

Gotta ask ya, have you done much "mooning" at the doctors office or while a patient in the hospital? Get much funny reactions from people? How about sharing, Big Brother?

Yeah, it's great to be pampered by Mom. My favorite girl (mom) was changing my bed linens Saturday so I flurted with her and asked if I might have earned myself a "steak dinner for cooperating during my illness, and if I could have it with french fries, salad and a piece of chocolate pie?" She told me that maybe I had and she might be able to grant the request. Besides, she thought I was a sexy looking guy!"

That flurting worked as I got that steak dinner Sunday for lunch! Do I know how to sweet talk girls, or what!

I sure cooperated with my folks to rest, got some much needed sleep, and finally after putting on my "sweet looking beggers face" I was allowed some TV watching time, and out of bed some of the time too.

I even setup that nerf basketball hoop set I was given on my last hospital visit from the candy striper, at the end of my bed and did some practice shooting in bed for something to do. I can still find the small hole to put the nerf ball through but, when it comes for the real bigger hoop in a gym I'll have to get myself re-trained all over again to be able to drive the basket and not get winded for long period of time, etc. I got this "barking cough" will have to try to get rid of that. Been thinking if I can't get meds for that maybe I could chew gum or cough drops as I can't be caugh/barking all over the playing floor Wednesday night as officials will bench my little sickly/recoverying ass and say I'm spread germs all over the place.

Of course Coaches will run my practices to get me ready, they run the "show" and I won't interfere or suggest what should be done, I just want to be able to play Wednesday, so whatever they say goes!!!!!!!!!

I still would appreciate a few prayers for this week from YOU and Rick. What happens, happens...win or lose the game or games, but I sure would like to win! Getting into the Hall of Fame would be icing on top of the cake!

So you think I think of myself as invincible as a teen? I don't know, maybe? But I'm willing to change if you see me that way. So far nobody has told me I am and I'm not trying to me a smart-ass. Change is good, so if you think I need to I will. You and Rick went through the same thing, huh? Do you think Kyle is invincible?

So Rick says your a "pain in the ass" or "a hemmorroid," huh? Rick told me he chewed you out because you wouldn't listen to him to stay home in bed, get well, take the meds, etc. That's funny. Now your MOM is telling you the same thing, huh? Then Rick was right! Aren't younger brothers suppose to listen to Big Brothers with good advice? Does this mean that Little Brother Dave is stubborn, sometimes?

Okay, all the above applies to a smart-ass named Joel! I haven't listened, and now I'm paying the same price myself! As for me being "a hemmorroid" that is a new name for me. Kyle will agreed to that I can be one and he's going to want to add that phrase to his list he has about me for sure when he sees this. I guess I can be one at times. Okay, I have been one, too. But don't some hemmorroids grow on people? I've been told that I have a charm and personality that can grow on people, maybe I can do that instead and not be labeled of being a hemmorroid?

I know someone else's little ass that has been stubborn, ME, and now I got to get my little ass fully-well to salvage an end of the basketball season. I know I can't do it alone, going to take team work, but I'll do the best I can to try to contribute to the cause and not make it too obvious that my little ass might drag some of the time during the process until its feeling better!

I guess I had better close, but it sure is great hearing from ya, Dave! Tell Rick "Hi" for me and I've left him a message to have him answer when he can!
