Tuesday morning while we were hunting my wife suffered a cerebral hemmorage (sp?) and was airlifted to a hospital in Northern Virgina. To keep the story short, with a lot of prayer, and the Lord's help, she came through the emergency surgery, and out of the (drug induced) coma a couple of days ago. It looks like she's going to pull through and be OK. Praise be to God!!

Yesterday, to stir her up, I told her "I swiped your Glock (19) from you, and I'm carrying it now." She opened one eye, and glared at me as only Misty can do, and said "And who told you, you could use MY Glock?" I said "I didn't ask anybody. I just took it from your purse and got the holster for it, and I'm carrying it." She cut me as dirty a look as I've ever seen, and said "You put my Glock back where it belongs. You've got your own guns." And she fell back asleep.

:supergrin: :rofl:

She's gonna be ok.

Howdy sir,

I am really glad to hear that things have worked out as they have for Miss Misty and you. Like Mr. Steve, I suspect when she gets home, she will find her 19 where she expects it to be. Well actually I suspect she will find it in her purse when you hand her purse to her when leaving the hospital.

I hope Miss Misty will recover quickly, and be back on the range with you shortly sir.

CajunBass,

It's good to hear that your bride survived the cerebral hemorage and is on the road to full recovery.
As for the G19 issue. I would advise you put it back in her purse and get one of your own.
My wife had similar feelings about me eyeing her S & W M-60 3" .38 Special. I now own a Model 37 airweight and a pocket holster!
Women folk can get downright ugly when you mess with their weaponry!

That is good news. (I hope it was Fairfax Hospital. My old mother started work there in 1960. They do a pretty good job). Now, you need to go and get your own Glock just like she said before she changes her mind. You are only following orders.

It's Inova Hospital on Gallows Road. I'm really impressed with the place.

Naw. She'd take the rolling pin to my head if I went out and bought a Glock right now. Note she said "You've got your own guns." She knows what I've got.

Besides, I'm holding out for a Wally-World 10/22 like hers. She did I could "borrow" hers while she's layed up. But it's still HER'S!

I am glad that you wife is recovering from her serious illness. Best of luck to you both. BTW get your own Glock 19, but in OD green that way you cannot possibly get the two guns confused.

Won't work Jeb. Hers is OD green.

I put it back in a safe place this morning and got my XD back out. She swings a mean rolling pin.

That little Glock is nice though. And taking it stirred her up good.

My friends have xd in 9mm. Those are very easy weapons to shoot. You and your wife are definitely a well armed pair.

CB, they do good work there at INOVA and it is the same place on Gallows RD. I really hope that everything works out for your wife there. However, a rolling pin to the head is only a flesh wound.

I've really been impressed by the place oberstlt. The biggest thing that impressed me though, that through that first day, when things were darkest, not one person ever asked me if I had insurance, if I could pay, or anything like that. It was all, "We're going to do this." It was the next day before anyone asked about that. Yes, I know they had to treat her, but in my experience one of the very first people I see in a hospital is someone to get your insurance information. And I don't mind that, they have to get paid to keep the doors open, but at a time when I needed every bit of strength I had to cope with what was going on, they gave me the space I needed. I really appreciated that.

Maybe other hospitals do it that way too. In August I had pains in my chest, and we went to Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, and I don't recall them asking there either, but that time I was the patient, and my wife was handling everything. I ended up having a quad bypass.

It's been an interesting last few months.

Howdy sir,

I truly am glad to hear things have gone so well for you and Miss Misty. One of the great pluses to me from shooting a lot over the years to stay sharp, is that I find it to be a great stress release too. So I hope you two will be able to be on your favorite shooting line very soon, enjoying that special time together. I might as well add that I find reloading to be a great stress release too.

Hang in there sir.

CajunBass, I too am glad things are going well for you and Miss Misty. You go buy her one of those old cast iron skillets and cook her a couple or three squirrels using my recipe when you bring her home.

BTW I don't know the laws of your state, but here in Texas you are not allowed to take a firearm in a hospital. Check out the laws in your state if you have not already. Boy, someone would be in big time trouble if they had the Misses firearm confiscated.

The last time I was in the FX hospital before my mothers death, I was a shiney new deputy and the hospital staff were concerned about me being armed with a prisoner! However, I can assure you that it was not a political thing. Hospitals have oxygen and that is a bad place to do any shooting. The story of the prisoner was funny at the time but it is not suitable for general publication.

Anyway, glad to hear your situation is improving.

Thank you sir. She's still a sick puppy, but she is improving. Baby steps. Baby steps. I keep telling myself..."Baby steps."
