Delighted to hear that all went well, Rossy, and that your mum's recovering. The prognosis now is very good, as I mentioned in my PM.

I just want to pick up a couple of points here from TJ, and my own heart attack brought this home to me - it's not the one who has a heart attack that suffers most from it. Some lifestyle changes are worth considering from the the viewpoint of others.



Also, some lifestyle changes are worth researching first. I also love fatty food and there's a 2.5 million year case study out there promoting saturated fat. Since my own heart attack (and subsequent research) I've avoided anything marketed as low-fat. I've started eating three eggs for breakfast fried in lard, not buying steak without a good half inch of fat on it, taking cream in my coffee instead of milk and spreading Normandy butter thick on all my cooked vegetables. My lipid profile is now excellent and I've recently had my heart medication significantly reduced. Dr Atkins knew his stuff.

Please give my best wishes to your mum.

Hello all.
I've been reading your lovely messages about Rossy's mum's operation, and its warmed me to the heart. Thank you.

Sometimes it takes us to be shaken up a bit by events to be reminded of what's important in life, and for that I'm grateful.

Good morning! I wanted to share a few songs this morning. However, I've been having problems getting onto YouTube. I couldn't get onto Facebook either. Anyone else having this problem? Oh well! If time permits, I'll try again later if time permits.

Later!

'Greetings everyone' (copied from Griffin, honestly speakin' grin ). Rossy, I hope your mom is much better now. Please give us some good news about her whenever you're free and relaxed.

In the meantime, I'll carry on my Saturday classical postings. Last week I mentioned about various forms of classical vocal music. Let me introduce one of them today: Thumri. A Thumri is basically a love song (romantic/mortal love or devotional/love for Lord Krishna) of short duration (thus it's actually semi-classical in nature). It expresses a lover's ultimate love, passion and pining in a divine manner when the lyrics is set with a Raaga of proper mood and the ornaments of classical music. Though I can't translate the lyrics of every Thumri in detail, but I think the following performances by Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan (1902-1968) are self-explanatory to convey the fundamental message of Thumri. Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan revolutionized Thumri and Kheyal (another class of CVM, I'll introduce it later) by his own legendary style. His distinctive high-pitch voice and extraordinary skills made him one of the few top most classical vocalists of all time. These are the finest examples of Thumri that I can think of.

Greetings everyone! I've hardly had enough time to keep up with all of these postings this week. I've got just a few more to listen to later today. Rupak, I really enjoyed yesterday's ICM postings. I always learn so much. Thanks.

Rossy, I hope your Mom is having a speedy recovery, and that you are doing well. I'll PM you a bit later.

PPP, I haven't had the chance to check out your post yet because my iPad blocked it. I'll check it out later today on my desktop PC.

Enough of my chatter! It's time to get on with my Sunday classical postings! I'll be right back.

My first selection today is the "Trumpet Symphony in D Major No. 53" by Franz Xaver Richter. Richter was an Austro-Moravian singer, violinist, composer, conductor and music theoretician who spent most of his life first in Austria and later in Mannheim and in Strasbourg, where he was music director of the cathedral, according to my notes from Wikipedia. He was born December 1, 1709.

My next selection is "Violin Concerto," Opus 14 - III, Presto by American composer Samuel Barber. This stunning performance is by violinist Hilary Hahn with Hugh Wolff conducting the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.




This will be my final posting for today. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

What I wanted to post was violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter's perfomance of this at Tanglewood's 75th anniversary that I caught on PBS the other night. She was amazing to watch.

We'll have to settle for recordings.


Good posts, everybody, and I hope everyone is well.

Hya all dudes and dudettes, well here is a quick update for everyone.

My mam is not doing too well at the moment, she is still in hospital and has been dreadfully sick indeed.

Everything she ate ( and that was not what you would call a lot) including just single biscuits she immediately just threw back up, that has been happening since the surgery.
The anti emetics she has been given do not seem to be working at all, and she has not been taking any pain meds for the last couple of days, so it cannot be blamed on anything opiate based.

Naturally they will not even think of letting her out untill she is eating and keeping food down.

Tommorrow they will be taking her over to ( I cant spell this right) Gastroentology unit to see if they can find out what the problem is.

I hope there is an easy fix as I am sure you all do, and I know your thoughts will be with her.

I thought about posting some music, but could not get myself motivated or in the mood, so, I am posting some of my mams favourite music of all time as it seems an appropriate thing to do...

so, first off, Her favourite hymn...




Another piece my Mam loves, and so do I for that matter, I dont care what the "classical purists" whine on about, this is just lovely.......




And finally....



Enjoy folks.

Hi Rossy,

I haven't read this thread for a while, and I just saw your post on your mom's hospitalization and read some of the previous ones. I went through something very similar with my mom last year. She had to have major surgery on a cancerous tumor the size of a baseball on her intestines, and there was a lot of throwing up and worse after the surgery. She's doing much better now, although still not cancer free (she is having another procedure next week in fact). I can really sympathize.Hang in there!

Thanks starr keys, glad to see you back, and HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!! I hope you had a really good one and I am sorry I missed sending greetings yesterday, I was really preoccupied.

I wish your mam all the best too and hope she has an easier ride this time round.

You know, this has got me thinking, we are such odd organisms, and in the great scheme of things I do wonder sometimes just what its all about: we are born, we live a while, we grow old, we check out, whats it all about?

Does this amuse the "creator?"

Ah the big question, Rossy. To which some believe they have an answer.

As the token Atheist here I feel compelled to point out that you should never presume an uncaused cause. wink Beyond that I have no logical answers for you Rossy, except to say that when the sheer philosophical weight of reality sets upon me hardest, the best place to take refuge from gaping void it produces is within the enjoyment of the simpler things in life: Backgammon, friends, music, etc. I do wish your mom the best.

I wasn't sure what to post but this always cheers me up, so maybe its appropriate.

A joke for you,

Rossy - hang tough and keep the faith - I couldn't eat much for a while either - all I wanted to do was drink ginger ale, which seemed to help relieve the nausea - your mom (mam) will be fine in a short time I'm sure...

Who would have thought that vacant and empty chairs could be the common thread between such divergently beautiful songs:


From Ken Burn's "The Civil War" Soundtrack with Country Music star Kathy Mattea on vocal:





From "Les Miserables" Michael Ball as Marius sings of his fallen comrades who used to meet and plan revolution in the local pub:

Keep the faith, Rossy. Some people (myself included) are very sensitive to anesthesia. I was nauseous for days after even simple surgery.

Best of luck to both of you!
