So Lady Boniva has broken her already limp wrist and has surgery on Tuesday. I had an unfortunate fisting incident--who knew that Bianca Del Rio´╗┐ would be so tight? Thanks for both your well wishes and snarky comments. Hopefully I'll soon be on the road to recovery and ready, as Beryl Mendelbaum´╗┐ put it, ready to shove food in my mouth with both hands again in no time. I was very touched that Beyonce put a song on her new album about me, called Pretty Hurt. But even better than that--I got the best holiday (did you notice that sly avoidance of the word Xmas?) gift of all time: my sweet, southern mama done come up from Chattanooga, Tennessee to help me for a week. Lady Becky used to be a nurse, so I asked her if she'd be trying to barge into the operating room to assist. She said that "They wouldn't allow that, so I'll give them the tips in advance." She's a delightful kook! And not every drag has their mom helping the to be a better pre-op. While I'm kidding, it doesn't hurt having a nurse as a mom. My primary care physician prescribed one drug which she recognized as having blood-thinning properties and she caught the drug interaction precaution so I stopped taking it immediately. You can't even take aspirin before surgery. I also had no idea that they sometimes would not operate if you had a bad cold or fever. Kind of good to know, since if I miss this surgery, it could be after the holidays before I could get back in. Now if I could only sick Lady Becky on healthcare reform!
