We Miss Denise! (wishes & greetings thread)

Denise is the heart of TCH, our den mom, and cute big sister. We miss her and hope she recovers quickly so we can have her back!

This thread is for us to post our well-wishes to Denise as she recovers, so she has one thread to check into. Any stuff we want to tell her can go here. This will be pinned until she gets back.

No Off-topic items please. Current events stuff go in the unpinned thread below. If you accidentally post off-topic, let us know and we can delete it.

    Denise, get well soon! Pay attention to the therapists and docs at rehab. They know what they are talking about – regardless of how mundane those exercises may seem. Then, come back home – the one in VB and the one here at TCB. I miss you and need to know you’re okay! 💕💕💕

    Hi Denise! Welcome to Thursday, Oct 15. When I was in rehab, it was always reassuring that I made it to another day! lol I hope the doctors and therapists are working the same miracles with you that they did with me. Have a great day. Enjoy your meals, your sleep, and your exercises. Have a great day! 💕💕💕

    • lateblum says:

      Just wanted to help keep up your spirits with something you introduced to us a few years ago. Have a great day!!!

  36. Gram Krakka says:

    Denise, Praying for your full recovery. You have helped your family for years, now let them help you.

    Thinking of you when listening to this song. Denise would have been “just 17, if you know what I mean” in ’63?

  37. Myiq2xu says:

    Ditto and stuff.

  38. Myiq2xu says:

    This is for our favorite Marine Wife:

    As soon as I saw it I thought of Denise.

  39. Anthony says:

    Good morning, Denise. Its almost sunrise, and I just finished my morning meditations. I included my wishes for your quick and successful recovery. Its still dark, but any minute the sun will be rising. Here’s a sunrise that I know you’ll enjoy. Best wishes and lots of love 💘

  40. Dora says:

    Good Morning Denise. I’m still praying, still thinking of you and still hoping you come back real soon.

  41. swanspirit says:

  46. Mothy67 says:

  47. Dora says:

    Good Morning Denise. As well as enjoying old movies, I remember that you also enjoy watching Sonja Henie. So here she is.

  48. taw46 says:

    Good morning, Denise! Thinking about you today and everyday!

  49. Anthony says:

    Goid morning, Denise! A brilliant blast from the past to get you going this morning!

  50. Mothy67 says:

    Miss you Denise.

  51. swanspirit says:

    Woke up and was thinking of you this morning! Good Morning Denise!! Big hugs!

  52. Woke Lola says:

    Just talked to DH. DVB is doing very well! They already cancelled speech therapy. Apparently she can say “Get the fuck off me” pretty well. 🤭

    They are doing physical therapy several times a day and she’s worn out, but doing it well. No word on release date yet. He has received some of our cards already. He was napping, so I let him get back to his nap. Special Greg is hanging in there. 🙂

    I told DH to tell her how much we all love her and are rooting for her return. He said he would. 🙂

  53. Mothy67 says:

    Isn’t Les Mes her favorite?

    We miss you.

  54. Mothy67 says:

    Me Aunt Maureen has lit a candle for you. Not sure why, but for some reason they lit em for me in 1970 when I was a goner. They have never gone out. Fifty plus years. It is now a donation site. People leave gift cards for families with sick kids and canned food. Loads of canned corn and string beans. The priest takes veggies to shelter. No family can eat that much corn. I got very close with my Aunt Maureen when they pulled the death panel shit on my dad. They wanted to put him down. He lived three years. Fuck the MDs. I said dad are you ready to give up. He said no. I said I got you. He died at home three years later from a heart attack. Shay got 3 years with her Pap.
    She loved her great grandfather. Maureen and another aunt Patty watched me stand for my dad. I took a brilliant stand. I was not letting them kill my father. I slept in a damn chair in his hospital room. There was not going to be a morphine drip on my watch.
    I earned Maureen and Patty’s respect. Sure in 1985 they didn’t deal well with me being gay. It was another time. Their only brother got sick and it was the gay son who had the grit to keep his head above water. It is like with pets. I get the phone calls when a pet needs to be released. Jim cannot do it. Steve, Casey, Dan, Mary, Sherry, Patty Beth, Cori none can slide a dog onto cardboard and hold paws as a best friend leaves. I can.
    Maybe Aunt Maureen was of another mindset in the 80s. We live and we grow. Am i meant to exist hating my fathers sisters. I think not. My Maureen is older like late 70s. I spoke of Denise. She lit a candle and knelt asking God to exhibit compassion. She has a belief in me. She lit a candle. The candles started out for me in 1970. A tragic boy with an absurd ticker. I had two gaping holes in my heart. My valves leaked. Aorta was too far to the right. Heart was four times normal size. I did done die. Boring was death. I was always dying. I made it through the rain. Just a silly mistake. I dont deserve any of this. My pig valves are nearly 50 years old. They are meant to last 12. Who’d a thunk I would be a gay fag raising an athletic kid and on top of it all getting to know Denies??????

  55. Dora says:

    Good Morning Dense. Hope you are feeling better today. We are all awaiting your return.

  56. Anthony says:

    Good morning, Denise! Something to make you smile today

  57. ginainmo says:

    Good morning, Sunshine!

    I’m so proud of you kicking PT butt. Keep it up and hurry back, I miss you 🙂

  58. swanspirit says:

    Happy Sunday Morning Denise!❤
    Is this what happens in Charm School? I mean rehab?

  59. lateblum says:

    Good Sunday morning, Denise! I hope you have some sexy PT therapist who spends lots of time with you. 😉 And the food is tasty, the tv screen is large and you get to watch all the sit-coms that you love.

  60. Mothy67 says:

    Hey Denise missing you. Terribly, madly, deeply.

  61. driguana says:

    Blessings and best wishes…

  62. Anthony says:

    Good morning Denise! A little bit of Liza live on Broadway to get you going today. Hang in there, we all love you

  63. Dora says:

    Hi Denise. They say laughter is the best medicine and this sure is funny. 🙂

  64. Cisco says:


  65. lyn5 says:

    Denise likes doxies.

  66. taw46 says:

    Good morning, Denise. I hope every day is getting better and that you will soon be home with us. Miss you!

  67. Anthony says:

    Good morning Denise! Don’t know if you saw this show, but thought you might enjoy this

  68. Dora says:

    Hi Denise. Just checking in to wish you a good day. I hope your health is improving by the minute.

    We all miss you.

  69. elliesmom says:

    I keep checking in waiting patiently to see Denise is here.
    In her honor, I’m going to use a word for the very first time online-
    Get the fuck back here!
    Now I have to go wash my hands.

  70. Anthony says:

    Good morning Denise! Just in case you haven’t had time to keep up with the news while you’re working so hard on recovering, here’s a glimpse in a nutshell of the latest Dem effort in a genre I know you’ll enjoy

  71. lateblum says:

    Good morning, Denise !
    I see my message from yesterday didn’t post. 😒 I was taking a “brain break” from Calamity’s remote learning. But I had been thinking of you and still am. I hope you’re getting set to practice all those exercises when you get home. The work never ends… 🎈 🎈 those TCM movies are awaiting your return. So Are We…
    Sending love and hugs!! lateblum ❣️

  72. taw46 says:

    Denise, there are roses!

  73. Anthony says:

    Good morning Denise – something silly to start your day

  74. swanspirit says:

    Good morning Denise!! Hope your day is awesome, and hope you are home soon. Hugs and love! ❤

  75. Constance says:

    We sure are missing you! I hope you are getting lots of strengthening rest.

  76. lyn5 says:

    Denise! I miss you! ❤

  77. Anthony says:

    Good morning, Denise. Your boy Freddie with opera legend Montserrat Caballé. I remember buying this album of their duets in the 80s; a wonderful fusion of my two favorite genres of music. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Also, plug the fucking computer in and come on by ❤

  78. BjornTheBorg says:

    I haven’t been by this place in ages, and it was a shock to see that you’re sick. Here’s hoping you make a full recovery!

  79. Anthony says:

    Good morning, Denise – a little encouragement to gtfo of PT and get your ass back home. Tie your sheets together and think like Jean-Claude Van Damme

  80. taw46 says:

    Good morning, Denise! Still thinking of you everyday and hoping you will be home soon. We miss you!
